Welcome to the Premiere Website on Peacock Bass Fly Fishing!
Xeriuini River Preserve
We offer several different private rivers to fly fish for peacock bass in the Amazon, and our new lease on the Xeriuini River Preserve is our most exclusive. The last anglers to fish this headwaters section of the Xeriuini River was in 2005. The area is now a preserve area that has been leased to us through the Brazilian government and the Mayor’s office In Caracarai. Less than 50 anglers will get to see this phenomenal piece of the Amazon Jungle each year.
Imagine sneaking along a small riverbank in the Amazon Jungle in a shallow running boat. The only noise breaking up the natural sounds of the jungle are that of a fly line running through the guides of a fly rod. Suddenly, along the bank there is an explosion on the water and bait fish scatter everywhere. A large streamer hits the water near the bank and as it starts to move just under the surface. Another explosion occurs, this time a fly line comes tight and the tug-of-war between a huge aggressive Peacock Bass and a weekend fly angler begins
For anyone who has been on one of these trips, it’s what makes them want to go back. For those anglers who have never had this opportunity, it is hard to believe!

Peacock Bass may be the most exciting fish to chase with a fly rod. Not only are they one of the most beautiful but they are aggressive, love to eat top water flies and they fight like a bulldog. They can be found in both North and South America, but the Amazon Jungle is their home. These fish were built for battle and will attack a fly with reckless abandon.
The Amazon region is a beautiful place to cast a fly line. 15 years of experience chasing these amazing fish and our knowledge of where and when to go helps make this trip one you will remember for a lifetime and want to go back year after year. It can also be very demanding and even frustrating for anglers who do not have the proper gear. On the flip side, anglers who do their homework and plan properly have only great memories of their time spent fishing for one of fly fishing’s seven wonders, The Peacock Bass.
Our website is filled with information to help any angler better understand the ins and outs of fly fishing for these aggressive, giant fish. Our years of experience chasing Peacocks have enabled us to put together detailed information for you to use on your next Peacock Bass Fly Fishing trip.
