Heading to the Pantanal!

My wife told me this morning that I am like a kid on Christmas eve and with good reason. Tomorrow Rogerio and I are heading to Cáceres, Mato Grosso for a week of meetings, research and fishing to prepare for this year's fishing season.

The season officially started last week but this is our first chance to get up there this year. We will be checking river levels and fish populations. We also have several meetings scheduled with government officials to prepare the way for an even better fishing experience for our clients.

Best of all, part of that research includes 3-4 days of nothing but fishing. Dorados, pintados, jaús, piranhas, surubins, pacu. Man, I can't wait.

I will be out of the office until the 15th but you can still call the 800 number and reach my wife. She can get in touch with us and help you plan your dream fishing trip or you can always email me at

I plan on blogging throughout the trip to share everything we find along the way. There are several internet cafes in Cáceres so I should be able to keep you up to date on what's happening. We also have several big surprises in store as well that we are working on and will announce shortly after the trip.

World's largest wetland. World's heaviest sport fish population. Largest concentration of wildlife in the Americas. The Pantanal. I can't think of any other place I'd rather be.
