Fly Fishing in the Jungle is the Next "Final Frontier" in Fly Fishing
The rainforests jungles of the Brazilian Amazon are perhaps the last, truly wild and unexplored region of the world. Nearly ⅓ of all the freshwater in the entire world starts in the massive Amazon basin, which is home to countless exotic species of fish. Nearly all of these are exciting game fish that will readily take a well presented artificial fly.
Partnerships with the Brazilian government and local indigenous tribes and communities has started to open up more and more incredible destinations, deep within the heart of the Amazon. These trips often combine unforgettable cultural experiences with spectacular wildlife, all in a remote, beautiful setting with strange fish of all shapes and sizes. Many of these are fish that will strip the
