Wipe Those Tears and Put the Fly Rod Down

blog_march_13_2010_1[1] From the Tropical Hotel Manaus – Amazonas Brazil

Unfortunately this last report comes from the hustling city of Manaus, Brazil. Our last cast was officially about 10:30 am. Granny and I and rest of the group got out early this morning to enjoy one a final poke at the fish. For Granny and I it was a little slow with a handful of butterfly peacocks and an impressive leaping strike from an aruana. Oh, and Granny nailed another very unusually colored jacunda also. Fred Truax however, one of the few without at least one peacock bass landed over 10lbs, landed a whopping 16.5lb with 15 minutes to go! If you remember my first report after day one, Fred was the guy who said he’d be happy with just one fish this week. Well, he landed well over 100 and his last was 16.5lb! Fantastic!

blog_march_13_2010_2[1] The sea plane picked us up promptly at noon. Everyone got on the plane wet and covered with the lovely aroma of peacock bass. After the hour and a half flight we touched down in Manaus. The first news we got was that my camera was safe and sound. I did officially leave it on the float plane on the way in. What a dummy! But, at least it was safe and I’ll have it for the next adventure. Everyone is showered up and we are about to chow down some burgers and drink some beers at the swimming pool. This is a really nice hotel.

To conclude this great adventure is simple. This was the best peacock trip ever. The peacock bass fishing here in Brazil is truly unbelievable and I feel every serious angler needs to put this on the bucket list. If you want to do just that, contact me at jeffcurrier65@gmail.com because I will be hosting blog_march_13_2010_3[1]another group here for 2011. Expect me to solidify dates by July. For now it’s a long trip home, catch up on things when I get home and get prepared to for the next adventure in April. On April 17th I head to  Egypt to meet up with friends Mikey Wier and Brent Dawson. There we will be fishing and filming on Lake Nasser for Nile Perch and tigerfish. Be ready for another blitz of exciting fishing reports  to come!
