For fly and conventional fishers, mobility and the capability to bypass low water and natural barriers is the key to untapped peacock bass fishing in the most remote reaches of Brazil's Amazon Basin. Drawing from only four inches of water, River Plate’s floating cabins can comfortably navigate these barriers and reposition daily to unfished areas throughout their exclusive privately leased fishing grounds on multiple waterways north and south of the equator.
Using a unique fly-in floating cabin system, RPA offers fly fishing only and conventional angling departures in the clear and black water systems of the Brazilian Amazon. Superb access to secluded rivers, massive lagoons, and forgotten oxbow lakes keep you in solid numbers of big aggressive fish.
Comfortably appointed, double-occupancy, ultra-shallow draft liveaboard guest cabins with full amenities and dining/bar barge host you deep in the Amazon Jungle. Stunning white sand beaches become your scenic front porch and tropical social gathering area.
RPA offers fly fishing and conventional tackle departures, a full Frontiers gear/fly/lure list will be provided upon booking. Fast action 8-wt. fly and medium stiff spinning rods, tropic weather lines and clothing are essential as is equatorial sun protection.
July to March season. Trips begin and end in Manaus, Brazil—offering a major international airport. Highly mobile, air-conditioned floating cabins accommodate 8 or 12 guests each week. Multiple Amazon Rivers are offered north and south of the equator - call Frontiers for seasonal and river availability. Groups of less than four may be canceled by the outfitter. A strict 45-pound luggage weight limit is enforced on charter flights in Brazil.
Season rates based on double occupancy / shared guide: $4,990 (12 angler barge) Private headwaters program: $5,590 (8 angler barge) Barge departures can accommodate 12 anglers, however, 8 is a comfortable group number we prefer. New single accommodation floating cabins $5,990 (6 angler barge).
