Rio Tatuagem - Floating Cabins

Clean, clear water allows the opportunity to sight fish to the extremely rare Vazzoleri (pronounced va-zo-ledee) peacock bass. Characterized by its bright yellow body, pitch-black spotted bars, and striking blue dorsal and tail fins, this species is simply stunning. 

This species of peacock bass is found in only a few watersheds in Brazil. In the Tatuagem (pronounced ta-TU-a-ge) river system, they are the predominant peacock bass species and THEY ARE BIG. These are by far the largest Vazzoleri we have ever seen.  Considering the current world record is 17 pounds, it is very possible that the next world record Vazzoleri lives here!
