Highlight of the week:
The highlight of the week all together was the 2 meter fish that our friends Evaldo and Luiz had a blast catching. There were aruanas that were eating every fly in the box – frogs, mice, and hoppers. Aruana fishing is one of the most fun sport fish on the fly rod, without a doubt!
