"The trip was a resounding success. I've stayed in many primate places and even three prior trips beginning in 1990s to the Amazon. None approached the quality of this trip.. Accommodations were terrific...I also thought it and the group I was with in Costa Rica in the early 1970s are the best of any."

"We didn't have a good time, we had a GREAT time. The yacht was beautiful. Leonardo was the perfect host, the food was 4-star incredible, the best we have ever had in over 20 trips to Brazil, and the staff and guides were outstanding."

"My brother and I whacked the peacocks with a 20, 19, 18 (2), 16 (2), 15 and many fish in the 8 - 12 lb. range. We couldn't keep track of the fish less than 10 lbs. The service, food, and accommodations are all first class."

 "I just wanted to let you know what an incredible trip I had with Captain Peacock. From the fishing and guides, hospitality, dining, and service, the entire trip was simply amazing. Every time I speak with one of the Wyoming or Texas guys who were on the trip, they all indicate they are still 'coming down' from their peacock bass fishing trip high and we got back from Brazil over 2 weeks ago. Without a doubt, it was the best fishing trip I have ever been on and your first class treatment of us made it so. THANKS!"

"First off, WHAT A GREAT TRIP!!! I must say I've been fortunate to travel to some really beautiful areas and learn tons but this trip was at the very top with excitement, fun, education, meeting wonderful people, and the overall experience I took away. The guides you have are top notch and have an unbelievable ability to navigate those waters. I would recommend any of them to any angler we have booking for a 5-star experience."

"The trip was a great experience. The accommodations were awesome, great staff, and super food. Even thought we had some very wet conditions, the guides stayed on top of things allowing for some big fish to be caught every day. I will have to give it to the guides, the rain never slowed them down. They love to put you on fish and it showed time and time again. Definitely a trip of a lifetime! Thanks again to Leonardo, Jim, and Sheldon for a memorable trip.

"Our group of Rio Negro first timers arrived to fly fish with Captain Peacock - with great anticipation and a mixture of fly fishing skils. While my very first Peacock Bass was a 17 lb. beauty, every day proved to be an adventure in what is surely the most amazing environment oeft on earch. Through the entire trip - from the foos to the guides and gthe service - no possib le comfort was left unattended. Did I mention the fishing was spectacular - even for the less skilled anglers? ... the operation and fishing just can't get any better."

" I've been extremely fortunate to travel a lot! This trip absolutely stands out. Under your supervision, the crew and guides just go all out to make every single day special – the 18 Lbs caught by the dumb blonde one on the first day, piranha BBQ's on the beach with chardonnay, soccer on sandbar, the Cayman experience – the service provided at the boat, chef, crew, caipirinhas, incredible food, crisp clothes… I will return with my kids."

"We all expected a great Amazon adventure. You, the crew, and guides were fantastic. The highlight of this trip was the village and the friends we made there. "6" peacocks over 20 lbs was a plus. Thank you… see you again."

"Leonardo - Absolutely incredible trip! Every day was an adventure. Never thought I would join the "20+ club". You, the guides, & the crew were great. I enjoyed visiting the village & promise will practice my soccer for re-match. Thanks again so much"
