Of all the places I have fished in the world, The Amazon River in Brazil and its countless tributaries are unsurpassed in outstanding angling. The monster peacock bass and dozens of other species that prowl the waters there are the most aggressive and murderous fish I have ever encountered in fresh water. For me, the only operator in this region to even consider using is Hooked on Adventures. The level of professionalism amongst the staff and guides is unparalleled. The yachts they use in the fleet are absolutely the most comfortable and accommodating for guests. They are the perfect vessel for relaxing after an adrenaline-filled day of giant peacock bass crushing your flies or lures. The local cuisine and libations are second to none! Where else in the world can you enjoy a bowl of piranha soup? The custom bass boats we use on a daily basis are the perfect boats for getting into even the most remote back lagoons and tiny creeks to find the largest fish around. Take it from me (a guy who travels and fishes for a living), there is no better or more effective way to fish the Amazon, than with the folks from Hooked on Adventures.
