Cultural Experience of a Lifetime!
This trip offers anglers an experience of a lifetime - the opportunity to live with a modern day native Amazon culture at the same time as enjoying some great, exotic species fishing. An authentic and exclusive Amazon angling adventure, hosted and guided by both Brazil's I.G.F.A.'s representitive Ian Sulocki, owner of the "Amazon Obsession" yacht, and by the natives of the river.
The village is located in the Southern Amazon region of Mato Grosso, near the town of Sinop. A myriad of species inhabit the surrounding waters giving anglers a chance to hook up any number of different fish adding to the day's excitement on the water.
The villagers are friendly and offer anglers a window into a culture so different from their own. Clients who traveled in 2011 described the adventure as a "pleasure and a great privilege all rolled into one package."
Fish with the Natives
Anglers fish two to three per boat with experienced guides. Target species are large catfish, peacock bass, corvena (freshwater drum), bicuda, payara and giant wolfish.
