Fly fishing for Peacock Bass is maybe the most fun you can have with a fly rod in your hand! Peacock Bass are some of the most beautiful, aggressive, and hard fighting fish you can catch on a fly rod. Fishing for Peacock Bass on the stunning Amazon River system within the world’s largest rain forest only adds to the magic of this trip. This is why this trip is on many angler’s “Bucket List”.
Imagine sneaking along a small riverbank in the Amazon Jungle in a shallow running boat. The only noise breaking up the natural sounds of the jungle are that of a fly line running through the guides of a fly rod. Suddenly, along the bank there is an explosion on the water and bait fish scatter everywhere. A large streamer hits the water near the bank and as it starts to move just under the surface. Another explosion occurs, this time a fly line comes tight and the tug-of-war between a huge aggressive Peacock Bass and a weekend fly angler begins.
