Rio Marié – Brazil

Location: On the Rio Marié, deep within the Brazilian Amazon rainforest near the Brazil/Colombia border

Fishery: One of the most exciting and remote peacock bass destinations in the world. The system you’ll be fishing has more than 400 miles of rivers, 180 known creeks, 60 lakes and three major tributaries. The mothership cycles through beats so that anglers are always fishing rested and sometimes untouched stretches inhabited by the aggressive butterfly peacock bass and the giant temensis peacock bass.

Accomodations: Anglers stay on the mothership. A spacious yacht with large guest cabins, air conditioning and in-room bathrooms. There’s a dining room and a cocktail area on the upper deck. An Argentine chef prepares dishes of freshly caught fish, fresh daily-baked bread and pastries.

Fishing Program:

  • Teams of two anglers are paired with a professional English speaking fly fishing guide and a local Indian guide. You’ll fish out of custom designed boats that feature fore and aft casting platforms. Lunch is usually eaten quickly on the boat, then fishing resumes until the light begins to fade.

Sample Itinerary:

  • Day 1 (Wednesday): Arrive in Manaus where you will be met by a member of the Rio Marié team who will transfer you to your hotel.
  • Day 2 (Thursday): After breakfast (approximately 7:00 AM), you will be transferred to the local airport to meet your charter flight to Rio Marié. Once on the ground, you will meet your guides and staff and transfer by boat to the yacht. After lunch you will head out for a half day of fishing.
  • Day 3-8 (Friday-Wednesday): Six days of guided fishing. Each group of two anglers will be accompanied by a professional fly fishing guide as well as a native guide.
  • Day 9 (Thursday): In the morning, guests will be transferred by boat to the landing strip and fly back to Manaus, weather permitting. You will stop to refuel before arriving in Manaus at approximately 3:00 PM. There you will be met by a member of the Rio Marié team who will transfer you to the airport for your return flight home.
