Through a series of Google searches and small-world connections last year I came across Bucket List Fly Fishing. Our 2023 trip to South America rekindled my love of fishing in the jungle and the amazing species that inhabit it. I was able to return to the Amazon in January 2024 and introduce Nancy to one of the most interesting environments on the planet.
Our 2024 trip was an extremely unique opportunity! Out of discussions with Rob & Karim (partners at Bucket List Fly Fishing), we had the chance to be the second group of anglers - out of a total of 5 groups for the season – to visit one of the least fished areas of the Amazon; the upper Xeriuini River. No one had been there for the past five years. Ultimately, the trip was one of the best trips we’ve ever been on! The full trip report is coming soon. We only explored a small portion (50km of the more than 200km) of the area, and we didn’t even see the Rio Novo which is a tributary that is a whole other fishery. We look forward to going back and seeing more of this area.
If you would like to join Nancy and I for another week of exploration January 12 to 19, 2025 you will still be one of the first anglers to show a fly to peacock bass that have never seen one before. In your angling life journey, you rarely get opportunities like this. This fishery is at 0° 0' 00” on the Equator in northwestern Brazil which only adds to the feeling of exploration!
To take advantage of this opportunity we need to have deposits down by April otherwise the week will be offered to other anglers. So, if you are interested in what I consider to be one of the most unique fisheries (and there is SO MUCH more to an Amazon experience as mentioned in the trip report) on the planet please contact us ASAP.
