Hi Guys,

The first pic in the last set is a corvina, which is like a croaker. It was caught on a jig.

Pic 2 is a peacock bass and a bicuda.Both caught on stick baits.

Pic 3 is a peacock bass caught on a propellor bait. The propellor drives them insane and results in some of the most visual and agressive hits from peacocks.

Pics 5 and 6 are a type of pacu which we caught from the lodge jetty, both these fish were caught on 12 pound mono handline and my dad got his fingers cut up/burnt by his fish. They are extremely strong for their size and very good fighters.

Pics 7 -10 are more peacocks, a cool fact is that no 2 peacocks are identical and the same goes for how they hit the lures.

Pic 11 is a bicuda in flight. We didnt land this fish as its teeth cut the leader.

Pic 14 is a capybara and they are much bigger than what you see on tv.
Thay are awesome swimmers, Once me and jinu spotted a herd in the water and they submerged and popped out 5 minutes later way downstream.

Croc1 is a massive cayman called 'negao' loosely translated means nigger. This guy is the pet of the lodge chef. It pops up whenever he calls it. The chef has been feeding it for the last 5 years and i'm sure it understands portugese. Its territory extends to 8km around the lodge and she makes mince meat of all intruding crocs.

Croc2 is another cayman we spotted when we were fishing and this guy was so wild and unaware of humans that he wasnt bothered when we got close to take some pics.

The otters are the giant river otters again like everything else in the amazon they are massive. They are extremely noisy and the fish dont bite when they are around.

The Anteater, we saw this guy while fishing xamari. Again he was least bothered when he saw us and decided to cross the river right next to where we were fishing.

The underwater image is of a place where an underwater spring sheds its water into the river. This place is called the blue lagoon and the water here is crystal clear. The lagoon is around 12-15 feet deep and was like a fresh water reef with many fish and water plants. We didnt fish here as the place is sacred to the natives.

The rapids and the red moss, Every day we had to cross these rapids to get to our fishing zones. The water is extremely fast and the boulders were huge. Wherever the water's spray landed on the rocks there was some colourful moss and other water plants growing, again all of which was very beautiful.

The hand and the face, this is me after the trip the only thing we werenot prepared for,were the amazon mosquitoes. These guys are only quarter the size of the indian ones. However they make up for their size by attacking in large numbers and biting throughout the day on any exposed area of skin(even the ears).

Thanks for reading,
Leaving now to scratch myself with sandpaper,

Rahul

Sayed Bhai, I was a newbie in this forum then and was too shy to post such a message to senior anglers ;)

I remembered this thread only after one of my friend also made a trip to this exact same place and same host and same camp!
