Follow these three easy steps to find and book the perfect fishing trip for you
Why are so many of Acute Angling's fishing trips less expensive, yet more productive than others?
Acute Angling is very different from other sites you may visit promoting peacock bass and other exotic fishing trips. Most other websites and organizations offering these trips operate only as booking agencies. They receive a commission, as would any travel agent, and they send you off on trips offered by an independent outfitter or fishing company. Quite often, they have no knowledge or experience about your destination. They take your money and send you off with their best wishes.
We are vertically integrated as a single business entity. This removes layers of commission and the need for a tiered system of businesses to deliver a single trip — thus removing the need for multiple layers of profitability. We own, operate, outfit and organize only our own exclusive and unique programs — so, not only are our trips less expensive, but they are more productive — because we go with you. These featured trips are personally hosted by Paul Reiss, Wellington Melo, Brabara francisca or one of our other experienced bilingual hosts, and are directly organized by our company. When you fish with Acute Angling, you won't find yourself up some remote river without the proverbial paddle. We personally manage our trips and are on-site, fishing with you. We can help with fishing techniques, tackle and a variety of extras that no absentee agency can provide. With Acute Angling, you have an operator who speaks your language and is dedicated to making your trip a success.
Step 1. - For Fishing Trip Information - First select the type of trip: For specific trip types and facilities information, select the category below;
Yacht Trips - Peacock Bass - Living aboard the beautiful new "Blackwater Explorer", a comfortable, air-conditioned mother ship and then fishing every day from stable aluminum bass boats offers the best of both worlds. The yacht-based trips boast both incredible mobility and relaxed comfort. Water levels and fishing conditions often change on a weekly basis in the Amazon. A mobile mother ship operation can keep its clients in productive water despite changing conditions.
Lodges - Multi-Species Variety Fishing - Lodge accommodations offer comfortable, air-conditioned lodging, private bathrooms, showers and all the comforts of home. Our new, Rio Travessão lodge is located in one of the Amazon’s most inaccessible areas. Floatplane access allows anglers to experience this primeval wilderness and its exotic multi-species fishery while remaining comfortable and secure.
Exploratory Trips - We're always looking for great new fisheries. Each year we explore one or more untested rivers. When we find one with potential, we organize an exploratory trip, sometimes limited to 4 to 6 adventurous anglers. Exploratory trips are designed with the hard-core, adventurous angler in mind, accessing the most inaccessible waters in the Amazon. Although the accommodations are often basic Safari-Style Camps, the sky's the limit when it comes to the fishing opportunities.
Payara - Take the bone-jarring strike of a peacock bass and the aerial exploits of the dorado, couple that with immense, high speed runs and more stamina than a marathon runner and you have the blueprint for the payara's fighting strategy. Our variety lodge trip on the Rio Travessão offer an incredible experience, while the spectacular cascading waters contain some of the largest payara in the world.
Mixed Species - Many of our destinations offer exceptional variety. Want payara, giant catfish and peacock bass, wolfish (trairão) and more, then the Rio Travessão is the place for you. How about peacock bass, aruana, redtail catfish and more. We've got a place for that as well. All of these destinations are wildly different. Call us and let's discuss what's right for you.
Step 2. - Then select the date that works for you:
