Dear Fellow PCC member: Every so often, an opportunity comes along for a special fly-fishing experience, and I believe that this is one of them. Next summer a group of us, including myself and PCC member David Bird, are going to an unspoiled river in the Amazon Forest to fish primarily for the Pinima species of Peacock Bass. What is special about the Pinima is that, unlike all other Peacock Bass species, it has adapted to life in fast moving waters. Instead of blind casting in still waters, you would be sight casting to fish in the rapids. In addition, there are a number of other species to be targeted.

The river itself is special in that there are no habitations on it except for the Pinima Lodge itself. There will be wonderful opportunities to observe jungle fauna.

The group has experience with the outfitter, Angling Frontiers International, as well. In 2018 we had an amazing experience at their camp in the Bolivian Andes fishing for Golden Dorado. He runs an excellent operation with skill and integrity.

As I write this, there are spaces for two additional anglers. The dates of the trip are August 4th through 11th, 2024 and the cost is $6,250.00 plus transportation to and from Manaus, Brazil.

As an optional bonus, we are considering a stop in Mexico on the way back for a shot at tarpon.

The Angling Frontiers brochure is attached, and I will welcome your phone call to discuss the trip.

Eric
