Fishing Conditions

The fishing for vampires improved hugely towards the latter half of the week, and they were aggressive in most of the pools we fished. We even had a few double up along with the usual frantic action. We noticed that even with fast retrieves, they took all kinds of streamers without thinking twice.

Highlight of the Week

Our good friend Alex Atala and his son Tomas enjoyed our fantastic destination this week, catching some huge payaras and enjoying numerous father and son double-ups. Both of them were our first guests that participated in the Kayapo ritual of cutting their arms with a payara tooth, a rite of passage that signifies adulthood. It was an amazing experience that we were honoured to share with them.
