For over two decades, Acute Angling has been providing the very best fishing excursions in Brazil.Imagine casting your line into the mysterious and beautiful black waters of the Brazilian Amazon. Then imagine the explosive strike of one of the biggest Peacock Bass you've ever seen. Then picture yourself fighting and landing the world's greatest freshwater gamefish and the trophy you've been dreaming of.

With a PhD. in Amazon Ichthyology at the head of our company, we've done all the research so you don't have to.
