River of Records
Produces Again
And Again

"I was up early at our Emoni outpost camp, and decided to make a few casts from shore while waiting for breakfast” recalls Swanson. "On my very first cast I hooked a nice 16-pound peacock, a great start to the day. My next cast hooked a fish about half that size, but then we noted the distinctive markings of the black-striped, or royal, peacock. Since I was already on shore and had a dozen witnesses looking on, I decided to record the catch for IGFA purposes. But it wasn’t until we got back to the main lodge and checked the IGFA yearbook that we learned that my 8.5 pound fish the current all-tackle record of 7 pounds."

A week later, Venezuelan angler Eduardo Aristuieta broke the 12-pound tippet mark with a 21-pound speckled peacock on the fly. His catch bested the previous mark by more than three pounds and once again emphasized the tremendous big-fish potential that has made the Pasimoni legendary.

Despite the “Chavez factor” the Pasimoni River Lodge is fully booked for the 2007-2008 season. Anglers wanting to get in on the action for next year should call Scott Swanson to reserve their space.
