Fly Fishing In Brazil
On The Rio Negro
You will be staying aboard a classic Amazon regional boat, you will be eating delicious Brazilian food, and you will be guided by our Nomadic Waters staff as well as local community leaders who are thrilled to share their ancestral waters with you. This is a yacht-based trip, located deep inside a Federally protected reserve, and are here by the special invitation of our local jungle communities. Nomadic Waters offers exceptional fly and conventional fishing for some of the jungle’s most exotic species, including 3 species of Peacock Bass, Arowana, Wolf Fish and more. The Blue Quill’s trip will be November 9-17, 2018, and be with 10 anglers, including host Kerry Caraghar.
One of the many ways that Nomadic Waters is unique is the fact that each trip is personally hosted by the owners. Our guests have direct access to the highest level of authority in the company. Our trip will be hosted by owner Michael Williams, along with the Blue Quill’s Kerry Caraghar.
Fishery: Guests enjoy catching a wide variety of species, including 3 species of Peacock Bass. Other species include, Arowana, Wolf Fish, Piranha, and Catfish among others. What makes the Rio Negro so special is the SIZE of their Peacock Bass Guests will share water with double digit Peacock Bass every day, and have a true shot at fish in the 20 pound class. Each guest has complete control over their schedule for the week! Having a centrally located yacht allows the guest to fish as much or as little as they wish each day.
Guides: Every Nomadic Waters expedition is personally hosted by the owners. They have know the Brazilian-based crew for over a decade, and are like family. The professional guides are from local communities and are 2nd and 3rd generation guides in these waters.
