Above: "The Meeting of the Waters" is a spectacle found nowhere else on the planet. Here you see the black water Rio Negro (the 5th largest river in the world by volume) pour into the silty Amazon River (the largest river in the world by volume). These waters will not mix for another 30 miles downstream! Manaus, the capital city of the State of Amazonas, sits at the meeting of these two magnificent rivers.

Introducing our new
Once you start looking at purchasing specialty gear, flies, or lures for this adventure, you will see that you could easily drop at ton of money for something that you may not use again. The drawback to fly and lure selections is that you usually end up with two only or three that work, and then you're stuck at the end of the trip not having what you need but over-loaded with what you don't need. Then there's the travel challenges. What if the gear doesn't land with you on your international flight? What if your luggage is overweight for the domestic charter flight and you have to leave something behind?
This year, we have decided to take the guesswork, investment, and potential stress completely out of the equation. For one reasonable price, we will provide all the gear and terminal tackle you need for your adventure. With all premium equipment flies, and lures, you will be fishing with exactly the same systems that Michael has fished with for years.
