Rio Marié has exclusive access to more than 500 miles of  the only catch and release, “fly fishing only” river in Brazil. With more than 15 species of peacock bass, regular encounters with fish over 10 lbs and a realistic change of a trophy peacock bass of 20 lb, this is a remarkable fishery.

Weather: The weather during throughout the week was warm and overcast, with the occasional patch of rain. Temperatures ranged between 27-33ºC.

River Conditions: The water level fluctuated each day, this made for unstable conditions for most of the week. It was only on the last day that the water height remained consistent and when this happened the fishing took off. While steady fishing was had through the week it was the settled conditions on the final day that made for a extremely exciting end to the week. The team began the week in an area called Ceua then worked through the system during the week towards the confluence of the Rubo and Marie Rivers.
