So I am 9 weeks out from my second trip to the Brazilian Amazon. Looks like we’ll be heading up the Rio Negro again. Last time we were pretty close to the Colombian border. Not sure exactly how far up we’ll go this time. I went in 2014 and it was certainly the fishing trip to beat all fishing trips. Only thing was the whole time I was there I was thinking how freaking awesome it would be to battle one of those beast peacocks on a fly rod, well....... today I went and got a new fly fishing rig! I bought a Sage Salt 10weight with reel today, appropriate line and all the gear I will need (I hope) to pull this off. My personal best from last trip was a touch over 19 1/2 lbs on a peacock bass. I’m hoping to meet or beat that this go round but with fly tackle! Truthfully even if I don’t come close to beating that just getting to be there and battle a few of those brutes on my new fly outfit will be worth the price of admission. I ordered several flies and tied a few myself tonight. Getting excited but as always 9 weeks seems like an eternity.
