Fallow Deer Facts
Fallow deer have been hunted for over 2,000 years. They are an extremely hardy and elusive species being extremely adaptable to a variety of climates. Adult males range from 35-38 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 175 to 225 pounds.
There are 4 primary colors of fallow deer. They range from a tan or rust color with white spots or can be seen as a creamy white, grayish brown or very dark brown color. Their highly sought after antlers are palmate, similar to those of a moose, with several large tines which grow anywhere from 15 inches up to a trophy size of 28 inches in length. The fallow deer’s meat is extremely lean containing only about 5% – 7% fat and is very succulent with only a very mild venison flavor.

Peacock Bass in the Amazon

Peacock Bass in the Amazon
If peacock bass fishing in the Amazon interests you, here’s what to expect. Imagine waking up on your 125 foot long yacht, listening to two tribes of howler monkeys screaming at one another at first light. See the morning’s red sun climbing into the sky. You remember falling into a peaceful sleep as a muffled generator purred and as water lapped against your mothership, all while you are resting in your air conditioned stateroom, deep in the remote Amazon rainforest.

You rub your still aching arms – and finger the various line burns and line cuts on your hand, glorying in your memories of the day before! Time to rise and do it again you think – and you smile to yourself in anticipation. Now you had best go fortify yourself for the days fishing by enjoying a Chef prepared breakfast. And good grief – what food!
Such is life when you go in search of peacock bass in the jungles of South America. Parrots cartwheel overhead. Jaguars growl in the night. You may even see an anaconda sunning itself on a boulder, a tapir wading across a shallow riverbed or capybaras scavenging along a lagoon bank. All this while resting in exquisite accommodations on your mother ship. You will observe an extraordinary array of wildlife and plants and birds- all as exotic and interesting as any on earth. And as you wake up and walk to breakfast — you realize your luxury yacht has moved 75 miles to fresh fishing during the night while you slept!

The mighty Peacock Bass of Brazil’s Amazon has become one of the most sought after freshwater fish species in the world since this fishery was opened in the early 1990’s. This colorful hard fighting fish, which can weigh 25 lbs or better, is an aggressive feeder that will come out of 20 feet of water to demolish huge, noisy top water lures with a vengeance. Occasionally they will knock a big 7 inch Wood Chopper top water lure 5 to 6 feet in the air – on a missed strike. A Peacock Bass wants to crush anything invading his domain. They are out to kill that lure!
Visualize a 25 pound Smallmouth Bass having a bad hair day, and you will get an idea of what a Peacock Bass’ temperament and fighting ability are all about! Peacock Bass will readily strike jerk baits, spoons, jigs and flies, but that explosive top water strike on a big Woodchopper or Rip Roller is what people come to Brazil’s Amazon to experience.
You will also have an opportunity to catch 4 species of Peacock Bass with an average of 30 fish per day per boat, including both Royal (barred) and Speckled (Paca) Peacock Bass (weighing up to 25+ pounds); the smaller Butterfly species weighing up to 12 lbs and Popoca weighing up to 5 lbs. Looking at the IGFA record book, you will see that most of the existing World Record Peacock Bass have come from Brazil’s black water Rio Negro River systems and that is where you will fish. These fish are most commonly caught using bait casting and spinning equipment. However this area is quickly becoming the fly fisherman’s newest and hottest adventure. Ask us for our equipment lists for both fly fishing and conventional tackle ideas. There are literally hundreds of fish species here to catch including piranha!
Be very much aware that mobility is the key to success here, due to the varying water conditions prevailing in Brazil’s Amazon and its many tributaries. Your mother ship is a shallow draft yacht which allows anglers to fish different waters virtually every day. Fishing is done from new 17.5 foot carpeted bass boats with 2 anglers and a Brazilian guide per boat. The guides here average 12 years of experience guiding for Peacock Bass in Brazil’s Amazon.
272.1  272.2-300x133

You will be living aboard a 125 ft. yacht, which provides the most luxurious mobile accommodations of any Peacock Bass fishing operation in Brazil’s Amazon. Your luxury yacht accommodates up to 24 anglers per expedition (double occupancy) or 14 anglers (single occupancy). Guest lodging includes 14 staterooms: 1 king bed room, 2 queen bed rooms, and 11 side by side single beds. Each stateroom has a spacious private bathroom with hot water, its own independent air-conditioning system, and satellite TV.

The yacht is equipped with advanced navigation equipment and various shipboard amenities. These include satellite phone service ($10 per minute), satellite internet service ($10 per MB), digital radar and sonar equipment, a pressurized drinking water reservoir, daily laundry and maid service, emergency gear, a defibrillator and first aid supplies, an onboard DVD home theater system, and more. You fish in the lap of luxury.

The onboard Executive Chef serves delicious regional and international cuisine and you have a choice of selected wines at every meal. The cocktail area offers an open bar with Brazilian and International drinks, premium liquors and the top red and white wine selections all at no additional cost.

Reservations made within 60 days of the departure require full payment, plus any additional charges for expenses incurred due to special mailing, fax charges, etc. Final payment is due 60 days prior to departure. If this final installment is not paid when due, the outfitter reserves the right to treat the reservation as canceled. Payment is via check, money order, or bank transfer.
• All prices are accurate at the time of this writing.Prices do not include air fare to Brazil.
• Until full payment is received from Purchaser, prices are subject to change, due to fluctuations in tariffs, exchange rates and other factors beyond the outfitters control. If the bookings for a given date fall below the minimum passenger requirement, the trip is subject to cancellation or re-pricing.
CANCELLATION POLICY:
Trip deposits and balances paid are nonrefundable unless a replacement angler can be found to pay the trip costs. Outfitter strongly advises you to purchase trip insurance immediately after booking a trip. In the event that you must cancel your trip due to illness, family crisis or other emergency, this insurance allegedly reimburses you for non-refundable trip costs. This insurance also provides for limited accident and baggage coverage. You may purchase trip insurance through your travel agent or see Travel Gard on line.

INSURANCE: We at BMOA strongly urge clients traveling to remote areas such as Brazil, to purchase a medical evacuation insurance policy. The evacuation policy we sell will evacuate you directly from wherever you are in the jungle, and will take you to the hospital of your choice! Cost for a week is around $120 per person. They have saved many lives! Just ask us for details and we can arrange it for you.

There is a second form of insurance called trip cancellation insurance. We no longer sell this as we were disappointed in their claims handling practices, but still you may want to look them over. Travel Gard (see the web) is perhaps the best known.
