John Sherman is one of the fishiest anglers out there, and he craves unique off-the-grid fly fishing experiences. For John, a visit to Rio Marié was certainly right up his alley.
John loved fly fishing the Rio Marié, and he was able to put forward some great video content from his trip (as we have previously noted). In addition, John’s experience led to a cover story in Fly Fisherman Magazine. In the article, John refers to peacock bass as the “junkyard dogs of the jungle” and notes that, “They’ll attack any perceived intruder, destroy your fly, and pull harder than any bass you’ve ever dreamed of. If you give them an inch of line, they’ll take 20 feet and head right back into deep cover. This explosive hand-to-hand combat leaves fly fishers with line burns, elevated heart rates, shredded fly lines, and broken hooks.”
For those who visit Rio Marié, this experience of “explosive” fly fishing cannot be denied. There is nothing like it.
