Trip Introduction

Amazon adventure fishing trip in pristine Amazon and Savannah-land rivers for fly, lure and bait anglers. You will fish in some of the most beautiful rivers for an abundance of sport fish species including Giant Peacock Bass, the legendary Payara 'Vampire Fish' and huge 'Golden Poon' Sardinata.

The Fishing

Our anglers will have the opportunity to fish for monster Payara on deep divers and other deep lures and Sardinata on small poppers and jigs/flies in the main Rio Orinoco and its rapids. In the lagoons of the Orino’s tributaries, we have many big Three Barred Peacock Bass to be caught on topwater propbaits, walking baits, poppers, spinner-baits, jigs, minnowbaits and flies.


Our anglers can also try their hand at bait fishing for some real Giants, Surubim, Piraiba, Jau, Redtails and other big Cats on the Rio Orinoco.

Finding many of these species in one place is amazing, but to have all these species, in the sizes and abundance that we do have here, makes this place simply a fisherman’s Paradise.

The Accommodation

The Rio Orinoco and its tributaries are some of the most beautiful rivers in the Amazon Rainforest. The Tuparro National Reserve and the surrounding jungle and Savannah lands are spectacular and full of wildlife.

We will fish from our Lodge on the Orinoco with comfortable twin rooms, giving our anglers the possibilities of catching plenty of large Payara, Sardinata, Pacu, Peacock Bass and much more. Each room has twin beds and an en-suite bathroom. A large communal area is set apart for drinks and boasting and to eat sumptious meals made by our in-house chef. 

When we are at camp, each angler will have a roomy individual tent with a fan, large bed, sheets and pillows. This is simple but perfect camp life and a wonderful time is had by all right on the river ………..
