I don’t like departing the comforts of Victor, Idaho during summer. Fishing my own rivers, coffee on the back porch watching humming birds and listening to Cubs games on my XM are hard to leave. But I travel anyhow and I never regret. The past ten days fishing with Untamed Angling and Ben Furimsky in Kendjam Brazil was no less than phenomenal!
A special thanks to my friends Rodrigo Salles and Marcelo Perez of Untamed Angling for making this incredible journey possible. If you too would like to experience a similar trip to Kendjam feel free to Contact me. This is a trip that we at Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures can book for you.
Here are some final photos from this incredible adventure.
Releasing one of hundreds of peacocks we caught this week.
Great fish are landed because of great equipment!
The underestimated wolf fish better known in Brazil as the trairão.
Ben Furimsky said he was catching a payara this trip and he did.
All the peacock bass you could dream of on the fly at Kendjam
Matrinxã also known as matrincha tail shot
Get in shape. The more energy you put into Kendjam the more fish you catch!
Amazon turtle found crawling in the boat. I’m sure he was lunch but I secretly released him. . . .
My favorite fish of the trip – pacu borracha – on Chernobyl Ants.
Don’t overlook this character on your trip – wolf fish.
A touch up on the way home.
See you next time Kendjam!
