    hello

    some fish from a trip to the Camaiú river, 1 1/2 hour flight from Manaus.

    These are river fish, damn strong!!

    Several times, the small 4 lbs fish caught the fly, and HUGE fish appeared under it, 15 lbs + just taking a look "what is going on here"... the small ones many times played too fast for the really large ones to take the fly.

    Super cool. What is the difference between the one with the spots versus the stripes?

    Any bright yellow moving thing will catch fish, they don't care for pretty eyes...
