(4 DAYS)
(From Andes to the Jungle)


Season runs from July to October - suitable for adults only.

An exclusive fly-fishing experience in the heart of the Amazon with the most adventure-driven anglers in Peru.

Project Paiche ventures deep into the Peruvian rainforest, 2 hours travel from the city of Iquitos, for 6 days of exploring the pristine rivers and lakes of a communal reserve. Accompanied by the seasoned Peru Anglers team and native partners of an amazing community, your flies will be tested by native species of peacock bass, arawana and arapaima (“paiche”), to date unvisited by any angler outside the local population.

For the canoe-steady anglers in search of the ultimate “the beaten track” experience, rain check your summer plans!.

The Paiche Proyect:
DAY 1: Leave Iquitos for the communal reserve, 2 hour journey by fast boat. Briefing in lodge, lunch and afternoon fishing peacock bass. Return for dinner and evening spent in the community lodge.
