If this past week of October 15 – 23 is any indication, the 2015 – 2016 fishing season is going to be phenomenal and a hell’uva lot of fun.

My guides, chef, support staff, and I entertained 24 guests this past week. We had four couples, one party of four, one party of three, and one single angler and all had a great time. In addition to the catfish and piranha they landed they also caught almost 1,500 Peacock Bass.

Check out the video below of Hugo pulling in that 24 pound gargantuan.

In addition we had a couple anglers that took to the river at night for some great bowfishing action. They took a number of rays and an assortment of fish.

Of course the group did more than fish.

They drank, danced, dinned on chef prepared meals, had a fantastic shore lunch, a phenomenal Brazilian style barbeque on a virgin beach untouched by anyone except them on that night, and enjoyed massages and spa treatments.

I think it says a lot that most booked a return trip and it says even more that most are bringing guest next year.

Of course I know all that come will have a fantastic time.

I know this because I know Amazônia.
