Highlights of the week: 

Helmut Zaderer came for the first time to the Marié River decided to catch and record the giants that inhabit these waters. Unfortunately for him, at the first day, a giant peacock showed how strong those fish can be and won the battle by breaking the hook he was using. But Helmut didnt give up, and at the last day of the fishing week he made his comeback landing a 20lb+ monster Peacock Bass!! Congratulations, Helmut!!

But that’s not the end! We also hosted Shyanne Orvis with his little 1 year old boy Colter. Both had amazing time in Rio Marié proving that a girl and a baby can travel alone with confidence to Rio Marié and catch a trophy peacock bass!
