The fishing

Kendjam Project’s rivers hold the most prolific multi-variety species fishery in Amazon.

Kendjam Project’s rivers hold the most prolific multi-variety species fishery in Amazon and probably in entire freshwater rivers on earth. Anglers can target various species using different angling techniques all in same run and pools. These mighty Pacu eat insects and Anglers can fish them with dries and wet flies! The fast powerful barracuda-like freshwater predator, Bicudas that once hooked will burn your fingers in a second. Anglers will experience sight casting for 10-25 pounds Trairao in shallow water and tributaries. The waters are impressively clear. The granite base is what makes the water very clear even after some rain. The river downstream from Kendjam community starts to divide its course in many parallel branches creating several smaller fast clear water streams. It sets the stage for the awesome and unique fishing ground in the Amazon.

Gear and equipment

Anglers can target various species using different angling techniques.

Rods 

5 to 8 weight single handed rods are the norm.

All of the saltwater series of the top rod brands are considered good choices.

Rig 6 or 7 wt saltwater rod for matrinxas, peacock bass, pacu and bicudas.

 8wt Peacock Bass, Payara and Traiarao.

 5 or 6 wt for the amazing dry fly fishing for pacus in runs.

 

Reels

Reels that have been designed for saltwater fly-fishing are the best choice.

Reels with strong smooth drags are recommended. 

 

Lines 

Weight Forward lines designed specifically for the tropics and saltwater are what you want.

Other amazing line is the Rio Outbound Short clear intermediate tip line, the 30ft INT/15ft Clear.

Full floating Outbound Shorts are excellent for effortlessly throwing giant wind resistant poppers. Do not bring cold water floating lines.

 

Leaders

Leaders should be strong and heavy enough to turn over big wind resistant fly.

 Most fish are not really leader shy but the very clear water situation can spook some big fish so fluoro-

Carbon.

 

Flies 

Fishing is done using a wide baitfish, big insects, fruits and even algae imitations.

As for patterns, the most typical flies used are synthetic material streamers.

Big Foam Poppers or Umpqua’s Red/White Saltwater Popper and Divers are great for the Peacocks and Wolf Fish.

Tierra del Fuego is considered as one of the great destinations for catching trout. This place has kept a certain degree of mysticism that is a magnet for any adventurer who craves a unique and unrepeatable experience. And although life does not abound on the terrestrial level, for some years now its waters keep an infinity of fish species, or large sizes and varieties, which have transformed this remote stage in an internationally recognized place for sports fishing and fishing with fly. #patagonia #flyfishinglife #fishing #trout #argentina #pointeroutfitters #explore #aroundtheworld #outside #outsiders
