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 Prop bait, Spook or other surface bait. The strike is nothing less than awe-inspiring, loud, aggressive, fast, furious and shocking all in one.
Amazon-Connect.co.uk is also proud to be hosting one of our newest and most exciting destinations, the Headwaters Peacock Bass Trip.
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!
From the minute you touch down in Manaus, you will know this is going to be a special trip, and the transfer out to the rivers by floatplane just adds to the adventure.
The incredible luxury on the purpose built 'mothership' is extraordinary, considering where you are. With great day boats and fully experienced guides, this really is a trip for everyone.

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.
