Amazon-Connect.co.uk is proud to introduce our Fly-in Cabaçeiras Floating Pontoon Camp Trip in Brazil’s Amazon Rainforests for the upcoming seasons. This floating camp is ‘one-of-a-kind’ and has been set out to very high standards in every sense. The whole structure has been built on a double pontoon system 16m long x 6.50m wide with a draft of less than 20cm, even when loaded with anglers and gear.
Peacock Bass anglers will tell you that once you have had a big Peacock blow up on your surface lure, you’ll be hooked for life! There is nothing more exciting than seeing that big fish explode on your Propbait, Spook or other surface bait. The strike is nothing less than awe-inspiring, loud, aggressive, fast, furious and shocking all in one.
Well this trip ticks all the boxes.
Amazon-Connect.co.uk is also proud to be hosting one of our newest and most exciting destinations, fishing on the upper Rio Abacaxí, in the State of Amazonas, Brazil.
This great destination is easy to get to from the city of Manaus, the gateway to the Amazon watershed. After spending the night at a hotel on arrival, you will be fishing the following morning, having been flown to the river by floatplane early morning.
Your home for the week will be our brand new, ultra-modern mother boat which sleeps only eight anglers and which will constantly move to new fishing areas during the week.
Not enough, well then we also have the Amazon Roosevelt Lodge with fishing on the Rio Roosevelt and the Rio Aripuanã. The Amazon Roosevelt Lodge is located near the confluence of both these rivers. The rivers are absolutely stunning with many cascades and fast water glides, deep holes and long deep stretches, teeming with big Amazonian predators just waiting for the adventure angler.
Excellent lure fishing can be had here with ‘Yellow’ Peacock Bass, Arowana/Monkey Fish, Bicuda, big Piranha, Matrinchá, Jatuarana, Payara/Vampire Fish, Pirapitinga /Pacu and more....
And for the really adventurous we have the Amazon Rainforest Exploratory.
Amazon-Connect.co.uk has just acquired exclusive access to over 100km of some of the Amazon’s most pristine, virgin watershed and we are mounting exploratory trips, moving between two different camps. You are drifting down river, deep in the Amazon rainforest, just you, your fishing partner and your Indian guide, surrounded by spectacular rainforest. Macaws squawking overhead, Toucans calling to each other from the treetops, rivers filled with rocks and boulders (some with ancient Indian petro-glyphic markings), roaring white water over cascades and waterfalls, sandy beaches, slow stretches with deep holes and shallow, inlets and streams, primary jungle with tall fruiting trees and with such an abundance of wildlife all around, we have it all for you.
Maybe you’ll want to cast a lure or fly for the most aggressive predators in freshwater? Perhaps you may want to go after the legendary Giant Catfish from the depths? Well, we have it right here, just for you. Now that’s what we call a true exploratory trip!
And finally, and this is the one we are most excited about , The Rio Fundo.
Amazon-Connect.co.uk has just gained access onto one of the wildest and exciting rivers we have ever fished. We fished this incredible river 15 years ago as part of another exploratory trip and the results were simply outstanding. This is a beautiful river system with roaring cascades and rapids, slow glides and many braids and side streams. It is home to some of the largest predators in the Amazon Watershed and has many deep holes and runs where mega-fish dwell. We predict high daily numbers of many of the Amazon’s multi-species predators and giant Catfish on lures and baits. We have something for everyone here in this wonderful river, for adventure-seeking anglers as well as for professional and amateur photographers.
If there is one species that is guaranteed to get Steve's adrenaline pumping its the Peacock Bass (PB).
The bruisers are explosive with their take and brutal in their fight.
Both the Cabaceiras and Abacaxi trips are geared up for these. Check out the video and related publications.
