With any luck you are planning one of the most exciting fly fishing trips of all time. Congratulations on having the time of your life for the 1st, 2nd or 99th time.
We hope you have a great time!
Planning – Just like any fly fishing trip, this one requires planning. If you plan correctly you can save yourself some money and enjoy the process of putting this exciting fishing trip together. There are many variables to this trip including how you get to Brazil, what gear you bring with you and making sure you have all your travel documents in order. Here are some quick notes on things you will need to do before you go and more detailed information on each page if you need it.
Packing – There is a strict 45 pound limitation for each. Duffel type bags with backpack straps are the best option. Soft sided is a must. A large one and a smaller waterproof one that can be used as a boat bag during your trip is the way to go. You can load your smaller one with carry-on items and also avoid paying any extra baggage fees with the airlines. Once you get to camp you can transfer your Boat Bag Gear into the smaller one to use while you are fishing. You can also take a large roller bag and leave it at the hotel in Manaus while you are at camp. This will allow you to cheat the 45 pound limit and have some extra clothes to travel in. Rods 3-4 rods is the easiest. If you bring a big roller bag to leave at the hotel in Manaus you can stuff your rod tube into that bag while traveling to eliminate extra baggage fees.
