The Rio Travessao has yielded 9 world-records during our sojourn here, and there are more still to be broken. Sure, this a place known for giants, but there's also amazing variety. Besides the plentiful big cats, this fishery abounds in exotic and hard-fighting species of characins and perciformes.
