Fishing Summary: A group formed mostly by Brazilian anglers came to the Marié River, hoping for a good fishing experience. Much to their delight, the fishing turned out to be even better than expected, bringing smiles and laughter to the group.
With the river’s low water level, opting for Intermediate and floating Fly Lines proved to be the perfect choice. Topwater was the name of the game this week.

Michael Martinz, an avid fly angler with an insatiable thirst for adventure, found himself deep in the heart of the Amazon rainforest at the Marié River. Determined to conquer the elusive peacock bass, he enlisted the expertise of his seasoned guide, Lucas. As the sun cast dappled shadows on the tranquil water of the lagoon, Michael felt the powerful tug of his line, only to be met with disappointment as a massive fish slipped away. Undeterred, he cast again, guided by Lucas’s unwavering confidence. Suddenly, the water erupted in a flurry of energy as Michael grappled with a monstrous 20-pound peacock bass. The jungle echoed with cheers, a testament to the untamed beauty and the beasts of the Marié River.
