Trip Introduction


Amazon-Angler’s fly-in (by floatplane) Rio Capucapu trip in Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest is a fantastic adventure for multi-species fanatics or newbies alike.

Our 'all inclusive' fly-in jungle adventure trips are based from a Safari-style camp in an exclusive brand-new virgin fishery.

We operate this camp only in the prime time of the season, from Oct - Dec.

The Fishing

With a set of falls near the mouth of the river, above them is virgin territory and has never been sport-fished apart from by our team members in early sorties. Amazon-Angler has exclusive-access to this virgin watershed.

There are many species to target on lures and flies to include the super-aggressive Cichla vazolleri/Peacock Bass, the rocket-fueled Payara/Vampire Fish, tough Bulldog Trairão/Wolfish, fruit and nut-eating Pacu, the athletic Bicuda, hard-fighting Silver Matrinxã, and massive Black Piranha, along with plenty of Cat species including Surubim, Jau, Piraiba, Redtail, Flat-Whiskered and Leopard Cats on live/dead baits and much more ……

There are so many species for the avid angler to catch who is willing to go that extra mile and put in the time. Anglers can catch nut, fruit and berry-eating fish like Pacu, Matrinxã, Aracu and many more scaled species all day long. All these smaller scaled species make for great fresh Catfish bait too! The weird and wonderful are also still to be discovered by many foreign fishermen and we have them all. Plenty of European anglers enjoy what is classified as ‘coarse fishing’, and an angler could easily catch hundreds of fish with sweetcorn, nuts, fruits, fish strips, worms, freshwater snails etc.




The Accommodation

Our Safari-style camp has tented accommodation with blow-up mattresses, bed sheets and pillows, and fans to keep our guests cool at night, although while in mountainous areas, it can still get chilly in the night. The camp has a fully-stocked kitchen, freezers and fridges, dining area, bathroom with running water and showers and is a fun place to be in, deep in the Amazon jungle. The sound of the river, together with the dawn and dusk choruses with thousands of birds, frogs and insects, is right at your doorstep!

Our anglers will arrive by float plane below the falls and after a short walk to above the falls, our fishing boats will take them upriver to where the camp is situated under the tree canopy in this exclusive Amazon fishery. This area is so far away and remote from any civilization and in the deepest of jungle/rain forest.

The bar is open 24/7, the beers are always cold, and delicious wholesome meals are prepared by our in-house chef. Take lunch with you or have a shore lunch of fresh fish, meat, sausages, rice and salad. There is daily laundry so no need to pack too many clothes (weight allowance is 15kgs on the float plane per person).
