Film: Fly Fishing for Arapaima in the Amazon in “Gigas”

A crew of anglers head deep into the Brazilian Amazon to fly fish for arapaima in a new film from the Fly Fishing Nation!

From the Fly Fishing Nation:

“In the middle of the Brazilian jungle, at the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve, three anglers are chasing the prehistoric fish that the natives call: Pirarucú. After the stocks have recovered from overfishing in the 80’s, the Pirarucú Lodge is known to be the best fly fishing spot for Arapaima in the world. The pursuit of one of the largest freshwater fish on the planet with a fly rod has its ups and downs, and “simply” catching one of these prehistoric fish isn’t enough. The reason you travel all the way deep into the amazon is to break the magical 200cm mark.”
