Rick Pope, Founder of Temple Fork Outfitters, and the group of 6 anglers he hosted Feb 3 - 10, 2016 boated 1,543 Peacock Bass on our private Indian land concession located on the Jufaris River in Brazil's Amazon. Rick, on his 4th trip to the Amazon, stated fishing at our Fly-In Safari Camps was his "Ultimate Amazon Rainforest Experience".
The group also caught a staggering number of other species including Piranha, Jacunda, Oscars, Traira, Dogfish, Pacu and Bicuda. The low water conditions also revealed many of the abundant rainforest creatures like Giant River Otters, Tapir, Capybara, Caimen, and monkeys for the group's enjoyment.
