KIT FOR YOUR AMAZON FISHING TRIP

Suggested Packing List

Kit for an Amazon Fishing Trip

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.
