OUR MISSION STATEMENT
For over a decade and a half, Acute Angling's primary goal has been
to provide anglers with the fishing trip of a lifetime. We have accomplished
this through hard work, innovation, an unwavering commitment to quality,
and most of all - an unending quest for knowledge. We've explored
the most remote corners of the Amazon, the wildest waters and the deepest
jungles to better understand the fisheries we offer our anglers.
We've studied the fish, the ecosystem and the limnological character of
the region. We've moved to the forefront of Amazon scientific
research. Today, we can comfortably say that there is no source of
Amazon sportfishing expertise greater than that offered by Acute Angling.
Knowledge is power, and it's this degree of knowledge that gives us the
power to consistently succeed in such a remote and complex environment.
Our commitment to our mission continues to drive all of our efforts
in the Amazon. Throughout our long learning process, we have added
to, changed, or eliminated various aspects of our trip's many complex elements
in order to evolve the most efficient, productive and comfortable fishing
experience possible. The result of our efforts is an unparalleled
record for outstanding catches, both in terms of size and numbers.
We don't intend to sit on our laurels, however. Acute Angling's primary
goal continues to be to deliver the very best fishing the Amazon has to
offer and to provide you with the fishing trip of a lifetime.
To this end, Acute Angling takes great pains to make certain that
all aspects of your trip can be handled from one, central office.
Air travel, travel documents, travel insurance, even the specialized tackle
needed to catch these exotic species can all be provided directly through
Acute Angling. We make certain that everything's done right and nothing's
left out. You pick the destination and you catch the fish, but we
take care of all the details necessary to make certain you enjoy the trip
of a lifetime..

2. We provide Complete Travel and Booking
Angling thoroughly researches and assesses worldwide angling destinations
to match your individual expectations. Acute Angling networks a wide range
of outfitters, lodges and guides. We give you a concise, unbiased
perspective regarding all the options...Whether you are a fly-fisherman
interested in Alaskan salmon, a plug-caster pursuing peacock bass or a
heavy-duty catfish angler ...We cross-examine all the different options
and choose the particular angling resources that best suit your personal
Acute Angling specializes in exotic
fishing locations including; The fierce freshwater fishes of South
America - dorado, peacock bass, payara, giant catfish and more. Central
America - inshore and offshore fishing - tarpon, sailfish, marlin, roosterfish
and more. North America - Canada, Mexico and Alaska - salmon, trout,
pike, largemouth bass and more.
On the other end of the spectrum, we can help with fishing trips closer
to home - whether you're looking for the 'perfect' Florida weekend or a
master guide on a chartered shad fishing expedition on the Delaware River.
How do we make a difference?
To help you choose a specific trip, outfitter, lodge, or guide, we carefully
measure the following considerations:
Optimal Angling Times - We Tell it Like it is - Virtually all
destinations have a peak angling period. Knowing the pertinent seasonal
idiosyncrasies of any location is an essential part of planning a successful
fishing trip. We will tell you the best times to fish a particular destination,
and warn you of any 'off' fishing periods. Acute Angling considers every
detail from moon phase and seasonal weather patterns to pre-spawn periods
in a particular region.
Specific Physical Conditions of Each Fishery - Spin and bait
casters require unique conditions often quite different from those preferred
by many fly casters. If you're a serious fly fishing angler we won't send
you to a murky river with a low fish population. We appreciate your preferences
and carefully match you with the right destination.
Fish Size vs. Sheer Numbers - Is individual fish size more important
than sheer numbers or vice versa? If you are after trophy peacock bass,
we will recommend only those destinations known for their big fish population
(such as Central Amazonian). If you are after action and high numbers,
several exciting clear water fisheries might be your best bet.
Incidental Species - Are you interested only in one species,
or do you want the option of catching many different types of fish?
Is your focus peacock bass or would you like to mix powerful payara with
giant catfish. If you want diversity, consider one of our variety
or exploratory trips. If you want to focus on one species,
we'll help you choose a destination that has the best populations of this
Accommodation ... Budget Considerations - There are many different
accommodation options to choose from. Do you want a full-service
fixed lodge, a houseboat (Like the Blackwater Explorer), a remote jungle
camp or do you want to stay within a budget? We will make sure
to show you all the options (not just the most expensive), and let you
decide which is best.
Affordability .... Value - Acute Angling offers several, exclusive
budget trips not available anywhere else. It was our goal in creating
these trips, to provide a quality peacock bass experience at an affordable
price. Our 'Economy' trips give the first-time traveler the
opportunity to experience these incredible fish and exotic fisheries, without
mortgaging the house. At the same time, anglers enjoy an excellent
experience in highly productive waters with true 'trophy' opportunities.
Unparalleled Pre-Trip Information, A One-of A Kind tackle Dealership,
Attention to Detail, Someone Knowledgeable to Talk With . . .
Once you settle on a particular location, Acute Angling goes on to provide
invaluable assistance regarding all pre-trip particulars. We will make

clothing. Our unique tackle dealership offers (at competitive prices) one
stop access to hard-to-find items. Acute Angling's owners have fished,
guided, photographed, videoed and managed lodges throughout the world.
