some peacock bass from the middle of nowhere Amazon

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.
