From Sweet Water Travel:
We are happy to announce that the ever popular Agua Boa Amazon Lodge is back under the watchful eye of the professional guides at Sweet Water Travel. That means that one of Sweet Water’s guides will be on site managing the fishing program all season. With their long history and knowledge of the area these guides are able to help ensure clients get the best fishing possible.
A few details about Sweetwater’s history at the lodge:
Sweetwater built the lodge in 2002 with Dr. Jan Wilt. This partnership created the premiere peacock bass fishing lodge in the Amazon. With its spacious lodge, tasteful bungalows, and infinity pool overlooking the Agua Boa River, the lodge created a lodging experience that set the standard for living in the jungle. With its sale to Lance Ranger in 2007, the lodge has only been improved upon. With updates in its infrastructure such as wireless internet and a fly shop on-site, the lodge is incredible place to relax after a day of fishing.
Sweetwater designed the Agua Boa’s fishing program to emphasize sight fishing. It equipped all the boats with jet units and poling platforms to facilitate anglers’ moving quietly down the river channel searching for marauding Peacocks along the endless white sand bars crossing the river. Sweetwater has a host on site each week to insure that the fishing program is adjusted to reflect fishing conditions and will make sure that your week at the lodge is productive and enjoyable.
The Agua Boa is the only river in the northern Amazon that has been designated fly-fishing only. This means that the fishing is all done with single, barbless hooks. By minimizing the fishing impact upon the fishery, anglers can be assured that they will find the same quality of fishing in the end of the season as in the beginning of the season.
The Agua Boa is a very diverse fishery. In addition to all three species of Peacock Bass, the Agua Boa also has very healthy populations of Arowana, Pacu, Traera, and, of course, catfish. If you have not fished for catfish at night in the jungle, you are missing one of the world’s most invigorating and exotic fishing experiences.
The eastern shoreline of the Agua Boa is a national refuge. With this protection, the Agua Boa presents one of the best opportunities in the Amazon to view Jaguar (admittedly rare), Tapir, howler monkeys, and an incredible collection of birdlife. It is the best place to experience not only the explosiveness of the Peacock Bass but also the diversity of life that still inhabits the remote regions of the Amazon jungle.
