NB. Some destinations have specific fishing kit requirements that
we will advise you on when you book with us.
Wide brimmed hat or fishing cap (with neck cape)
2 x tropical long or short-sleeved shirts
2 x lightweight shorts or long fishing trousers
Crocs or similar boat shoes
Sunblock with at least 50SPF
Insect repellent (if any ‘no-see-ums’ are in area)
Camera and battery
Days are typically hot with temperature over 70F at night and 80-90F during the day.
This is the rainforest and some days will give a burst of rain in the afternoons.
We advise clients to bring a lightweight rain jacket/suit as it can get chilly if wet on a return journey in the evening or when temperatures drop during a storm.
As we are fishing in tannin-stained acidic water, there are few or no mosquitos or many biting insects.
If you are an experienced angler you will know doubt want to bring some of your own favourite fishing kit with you. However, tackle is available to buy and to hire on the fishing adventure holidays that Amazon-Angler organises.
