Internationally traveled fly fishermen are astounded and charmed by the rainforest canopy, river-front jungle lodge and ultimate clear-water fly fishing experience when sight-fishing for Brazil’s fiercest fighting fish; the peacock bass. The Agua Boa is the sole fly fishing-only river in Brazil designated as a single barbless hook fishery to preserve its resource for generations. In this shallow river featuring white sand bars and flats, marauding bass decimate presented flies. In the canopy, monkeys, macaws, jaguars, Capybara, parrots, tortes and other rain forest sights are witnessed daily.
Anglers predominantly target 3 species of peacock bass – butterfly, spotted and temensis. They also fish aruana, arapaima, payara, piranhas and red-tailed catfish from the bow of flat-bottom jet motor jungle skiffs along white sand river beaches, lagunas and ox-bow lakes.
Seven double-occupancy bungalows and a main lodge overlook a 50-ft swimming pool and the river. Bungalows offer 2 queen beds, air conditioning, refrigerator and TV. The main lodge features an airy dining room, large TV/bar area and game room. Delicious, meals are typically served buffet-style.
Fast-action 7-to 9-wt. rods with tropical weight forward floating lines work well. Sturdy reels with ample backing and a steady drag are key. Corresponding sink-tip lines are also suggested. A complete gear list is provided with confirmation. Contact Frontiers for tackle and fly recommendations.

This week the Brazilian government has announced a new electronic Visa process for US citizens which will shorten the application process considerably. This will expedite the time between application and anglers receiving their Visas for travel. This is excellent news for the traveling peacock bass angler wishing to head to Brazil for some monster Tucanar. In years past, one of the concerns for travel to Brazil was the “unknown” ...
