Agua Boa Amazon Lodge, Brazil
Located in northern Brazil, the Agua Boa is remarkably clear, has white sand beaches and is more reminiscent of the Florida Keys than what most expect of the Amazon jungle. Overlooking the river is the Agua Boa Amazon Lodge, the world’s first operation dedicated exclusively to pursuing peacock bass and other jungle species on the fly.
The lodge provides anglers with a level of comfort unrivaled in the Amazon. Guests stay in private, air-conditioned bungalows with two queen beds, a sitting area, private bathroom and a porch overlooking the river. Home to world class bird watching and wildlife viewing, the lodge also features a swimming pool, entertainment room and other amenities suitable for guests. With over one hundred miles of fishable water, this is a premier peacock bass destination for discerning fly fishers.

Were the massive Amazon basin to have an Eden, it would be on the banks of the immaculate Iriri River. Home of the Kayapo people, the noble painted natives that inspired the script for Avatar, the Iriri, with its clear green waters, countless braids and rocky islands, is an other-worldly place that floats far above what most envision the jungle to be.
Here adventuresome anglers can interface with one of the most fortunate and unaffected native groups in the New World as they enjoy the finest light-tackle multi-species fishing experience available. From the comfort of a deluxe native hardwood cabin camp, groups of six anglers will explore the riches of the Iriri by boat and on foot sight casting to a host of exotic jungle game fish including a unique species of peacock bass, wolf fish, pacu and jaturana. Armed with little more than a 7 wt. rod, a floating line and popper, anglers can wet wade and sight fish a wide range of interesting water types in the midst of one of the most pristine and biologically diverse ecosystems on earth. For anglers, adventurers and lovers of the wildest and most remote reaches of our planet, this epic journey into the Amazon’s most pristine jungle paradise is truly without equal.

Pirarucu Lodge, Brazil
Pirarucú Lodge is a Brazilian destination whose primary focus is to fish over and catch an unprecedented number of arapaima – the often illusive, prehistoric and tarpon-like game fish that many consider the ultimate jungle trophy.
Here anglers will fish in the Mamirauá Reserve, Brazil’s first Sustainable Development Reserve which totals more than 1 million hectares and was created first and foremost to preserve aprapaima and their habitat. In addition to the hard fighting, aerial arapaima, the reserve offers great fishing for timbaqui, a large pacu like fish, the exotic arowana and yellow peacock bass. The region is characterized by long chains of lakes and interconnected channels. During the wet season, it is a world renowned destination for birders. When the water drops in the fall, the angling opportunities reach their peak. Guests will stay at a simple, floating, solar-powered, eco-tourism lodge built from native hardwoods. The lodge features ten floating cabins. The lodge is also very suitable for guests keen on a range of general eco-tourism activities.

The Xingu river sport-fishing project is located in the spectacular wilderness territory of the Kayapo indigenous people in the southeastern Amazon basin of Brazil. The Xingu Lodge is the first location dedicated to targeting payara, the elusive and hard-fighting vampire fish. For years this has been one of the hardest fish for fly anglers to target, as there are very few safe regions where they can be found in concentrated numbers. With the recent development of the Xingu Camps, located near Untamed Anglings’ popular Kendjam Lodge, the playing field has changed, offering intrepid anglers the best opportunity in the world to target these savage fish. This eight-person camp will run from September through October when flows are lowest and anglers will target fish with sinking lines while casting from both the bank and boats. If you have ever wanted to target these remarkable gamefish, this is the place.
