Rio Marié is simply the ultimate peacock bass fishery. It is what the locals call "Rio de Gigantes"
Rio Marié is entirely located inside an extensive Indian Territory - an area of more than two million hectares. This untouched environment has more than 800 kilometers of rivers, 180 known creeks, 60 lakes, and three major tributaries inside the new operation area. It is the first exclusive fly fishing only project allowed and supported by the Brazilian Government. Official Environmental and Indian Institutes worked together with the Indian Association to create the very first official sport fishing operation in Brazil inside an Indian Territory.
The result of these efforts is access to a fishery that is unlike any other in the world.
Rio Marié is now the largest fly fishing only reserve in the Amazon and one of the largest fly fishing only areas in the world.
Rio Marié is also home to more double digit, trophy peacock bass and a higher concentration of those monster fish than any other river in Brazil or the Amazon. This has been independently verified with scientific research. And not only do we often encounter peacock bass larger than 10 pounds, but we are also proud that this is the best place in the world to fly fish for 20 pound peacock bass.
This river area is huge, encompassing nearly 500 miles of virgin waters, and it boasts a healthy population of giant peacock bass. For anglers, this translates into very real opportunities to consistently hook and release much larger-than-average peacock bass on the fly.
