  1. * LURE, FLY AND BAIT FISHING IN THE AMAZON AT ITS BEST!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All has been agreed and signed to enable us to fish EXCLUSIVELY on one of the very few virgin rivers left in the world, where the fish have NEVER seen a rod and line. The river is in one of the remotest and deepest part of the Amazonian jungle where the indigenous folks literally have had no or little contact with any outsiders. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For a start, we will make 2 expeditions in August and September with week 1 August 26 - Sept 2 and week 2 September 2-9 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cut off from the rest of the world by large falls and cascades further down the river, and with over 250 kms of river for us to explore and play in, the river and its surrounding jungle are in an Indian Reservation and only accessible by float plane. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our trips will involve genuine explorations into the jungle seeking out some of the largest and craziest piscatorial predators in the whole of the Amazon Basin, if not in all the world's freshwaters. According to our native Indian guides, the bigger Cats include the Giant Piraiba/Freshwater Shark, big Redtails, huge Jau, Surubim, with smaller species like the Flat-Whiskered Cat, Jandia/Leopard Cat, Piracatanga, along with many other Amazonian peculiarities. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And if you want to add in some amazing lure and fly fishing into the equation, we also have many other hard-fighting lure and fly-crushing species like big ‘Green’ riverine Peacock Bass, Payara/Vampire Fish, Pirapatinga (giant Pacu), huge Pike-like Bicuda, big Black Piranhas, a few Wolfies mixed in and generally a whole crazy bunch of fish to be caught! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For a max. 8 guests, each angler will have their own comfortable and spacious tent with a blow-up mattress and room for their gear, a constant supply of ice cold drinks and beers, good food, plenty of action and all set in beautiful scenery. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These are all-inclusive floatplane fly-in trips for one week with 6+ days fishing, all food and beverages while at camp and guided fishing with 2 anglers/boat + guide. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Imagine the privilege of being one of the first white men to ever catch a fish in these waters on rod and line ...... this is what it’s all about. Please see brochure here: https://issuu.com/amazon-angler/docs/rio_sagrado_exploratory_trip_-_braz ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Schedules would be as follows: Day 1: arrive in the city of Manaus, transfer and overnight in hotel (included). Day 2: early morning transfer to airport and onwards flight to the river by floatplane. Start fishing when ready! Day 3-8: 6 full days guided fishing. Day 9: mid-morning flight by floatplane back to Manaus and onwards journey home. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If anyone would like to join me on one of these amazing adventures, please email me atsteve@amazon-angler.com or PM me here.

  3. UK's AMAZON-ANGLER.COM's new long and short-sleeved models of our ultra fishing shirts now on sale and in stock. For the Amazon and other Tropical destinations. We designed these new long and short-sleeved technical fishing shirts specifically with adventure fishing in hot, humid climates like the Amazon jungle in mind. We wanted the coolest, lightest material on the market that would ‘slide’ over skin with no friction in the shoulders and arms while casting, and for our anglers to feel cool and comfortable all day long, no matter how high the temperature. These shirts are made using the exceptional Cool-Tec Pique fabric. This amazing material boasts incredible cool-dry moisture control and yet is ultra-breathable while at the same time boasting anti-UV sun protection qualified at EN 13758-1 Standard. We also had these top quality shirts designed to have fold-able, soft high collars for sun protection at the back of the neck, and the 12" soft zips at the front for maximum cool effect are made with the lightest materials we could find. All printing is fully sublimated and colours will last, and last. http://www.amazon-angler.com/shop/4587275756/amazon-ultra-fishing-shirt/10401673
  4. I spent a week in the Summer at what I can only describe as the most comfortable lodge in Brazil that I have ever experienced. This fantastic floating Hotel/Lodge gets our #1 thumbs up for the angler who wants complete comfort and pampering while able to catch a bundle of big fish. In Amazon-Angler.com’s honest opinion, we would classify this amazing floating hotel and fishing trip as our top 5* destination. For the avid lure and fly angler, this has got to go on the bucket list! In this particularly productive and varied watershed, there is a huge diversity of species to be caught. With over 150 lakes and lagoons (landlocked and off the river), three main rivers (the Rios Juruena and Teles Pires meet to form the Tapajós, and the lodge is situated at the confluence) and many other tributaries, this is simply a huge fishing area. Great top water action can be had with big Cichla pinima Peacock Bass (to 22lbs!), Arowana, Bicuda and other species using small-medium Prop baits, poppers and stick baits/Spooks in the many lagoons and lakes, against the submerged trees and tree stands, off points and sand bars, along the banks and all over the river system and tributaries. One angler while I was there caught 187 Peacock Bass to over 17lbs in just one day, all on topwaters! Excellent subsurface action can also be had using minnow/jerkbaits, bucktail jigs with extended tails and other smaller lures, for big Cichla pinima Peacock Bass, Payara/Vampire fish, Corvina, Arowana, Bicuda and many other species. As this is mainly a shallow river, Payaras are found more in the shallow rocks and rapides and it's a lot of fun seeing them side-swipe a lure near the surface! Fly fishing at this destination is the very best that we have ever experienced at any lodge and anglers can target huge Peacock Bass, Payara, Arowana, Bicuda, Jataruána, Matrnxã, Jacunda, Pacu sp. Tambaqui, the occassional Wolf Fish and many other species with amazing results in the lakes, river, rapids, points and tributaries. A particularly favourite method is sight casting from the many beaches and sand bars. Most of the faster species found in or near rapids and fast water, like Bicuda and Payara, (there are even Peacock Bass behind the rocks in the fast water) will rip line off your reel at a blistering pace. There are plenty of Catfish species to target also, including two species of Surubim/Shovelnose (Cacharra/Tiger Cats and the larger Capararí that grows to over 60lbs!), Barbado, Jundia/Leopard, Dourada (Golden Cats), Jau, Redtails, Piranambu, Piraiba and more (these are best targeted from November – June when the water is higher). Please check out this promo video that Bill Day, Caito Lanhoso Martins and I made for this fabulous destination: https://youtu.be/zBCd7gHyJAM I currently have places open for weeks 16-23 July and 12-19 September 2016 should anyone be interested in joining me. Please email me at steve@amazon-angler.com for more information.

For those of you with Facebook, please click on the link and check out our species list and sizes that we have had on past trips: https://www.facebook.com/steve.townson.35/media_set?set=a.10153793443507468.1073741861.707022467&type=1&pnref=story Some of you will have caught some of these species, but for those of you who would like to know about what else we have out there in the mighty Amazon, please enjoy!
  6. We have secured some really good discounted prices for some of our Peacock Bass trips to the Rio Negro and its tributaries in Brazil, deep in the jungle on both houseboat and floating pontoon/camps (all A/C throughout) during the latter end of the season from December 2015 through January, February and March 2016.

  7. ‘LOST WORLD’ AMAZON FISHING EXPEDITION - BRAZIL, a combination 2-in-1 Giant Three Bar Peacock Bass and multi-species adventure trip set in the deepest Amazon Jungle in Indian territory. If you’ve ever wanted to do an exploratory fishing trip with a difference, then look no further! Our crew has just returned from what can only be described as a dream fishing trip in one of the world’s true last ‘Lost World’ fisheries. In the past, due to logistical challenges in accessing areas from the Guyana Shield Highland run-off rivers and into the Amazon’s lowland lakes and lagoon systems all within the same day, this was once impossible. But now with this ‘2-in-1’ great new adventure fishing destination smack bang in the middle of an Indian reservation, we have the best of both worlds in one single trip, and all close by! Anglers would arrive at the first river directly from Manaus via floatplane where our private air-conditioned floating bungalow camp will be waiting on a closed chain of lowlands lakes and lagoons, ready for anglers to target the Amazon’s primary sport fish, the Cichla temensis Giant Three Bar Peacock Bass. After three days of fighting big Peacocks, guests will be transferred upriver to our safari-style camp, where they will continue fishing on the Highlands part of the river. Our target species here are C. vazzoleri Peacock Bass (or Yellow Peacocks), big Bicuda, Payara/Vampire Fish, Traiarao/Wolf Fish, big Black Piranha, Pacu and a host of Cats like the Giant Piraiba/Freshwater Shark, Jau and Redtail together with Jundia/Leopard Cats, Surubim/Tiger Cats and more ..... We have planned this Exploratory trip for the week of 5th—12th October 2015, to give this brand new virgin fishery a real try-out, so why not come with us and be the first to wet a line in these spectacular waters. The cost would includes all ground transfers, first night in the Tropical Hotel, floatplane fly-in to and from the river(s) all food, drink and lodgings for 7 days with 6 full days guided fishing.
