They had been facing high water levels in recent weeks. To remedy the situation, they have been going far up the Rio Turi to find better water levels and increase fishing productivity. Indeed, they found success. Going far up the Rio Turi paid off and they had far more action than they would have had otherwise. The group caught a lot of butterflies and had a great deal of fun chasing these fish. The big peacock bass were slow to take flies, but anglers did catch some very nice fish.

Highlight of the Week: A big 18-pound peacock bass was caught on the very last cast of the day by Andrew. This is proof that it is worth pushing to the end, having faith, and being ready! They also had a lot of peacock bass doubles, which made for a great deal of fun.
