Now that you know a little more about the peacock and the areas in which to find them, let’s help make it possible. As in traveling to any foreign country one can expect certain requirements and with that, also some potential concerns. The best way I know to overcome these obstacles and have a great experience abroad is to travel within the framework of qualified agents. They will provide you with the necessary information regarding vaccines, flight schedules, accessory needs and so on. They will see to it that you and/or your group are accommodated in every way possible. From arranging to meet you in Miami if necessary to expediting you and your gear from the airport in Manaus to the Yanna, to seeing that you and your group are escorted back to the airport for your return trip. Simply put, they will see to it your peacock experience aboard the Yanna is a pleasant one. Want to have fun, join us on our next peacock adventure upon the Yanna on the Rio Negro. Lindy Fishing Tackle Join Us Aboard The YANNA Things You Will Need The key is To Pack Light: Right… Passport and Brazil travel visa are a must. You will want your personal gear below 50 lbs. There is laundry service aboard the YANNA for the price of a tip. Add to that your tackle, at least 4 extra heavy action rods, in the musky variety. Quality baitcasting equipment is a must. For those choosing to use lighter gear Ardent’s 600 and 1000 Would be a good choice. However, if your timber fishing you will need heavier equipment. Braided super-lines are a must. Western Filament’s Tuf-XP in at least 60 lb test is recommended. Lures should include “Jack-The-Ripper, Poe’s Giant Jackpot or the Woodchopper if you choose topwater. Crankbaits, muskie bucktails and spinnerbaits and jigs will also provide good success. Digital camera, Sun block in 45 spf, Chap-Stick at least 15 spf and 30 spf is better. A good digital camera, extra batteries and extra storage. Personal belongings, dry bag and rain gear.

The Yanna is the vessel I have traveled on for the last three years. This incredible craft rates among the best in the Amazon. It’s stance is 30 meters long and 7 meters wide. It host eight private births with private baths, a game room with TV and VCR, a dining and stands three stories high. Pulled behind the Yanna are eight Bass Tracker styled boats powered by Mercury four stroke engines and are all fully guided. And, if you would like to experience the Yanna as a part of our group in December, please email Rich Tuomi at or call us at 1-800-222-8775. As I stated, I feel December is perfect timing for the MONSTER PEACOCKS of the AMAZON and if you wish, you can be a part of our group and learn first hand from those who have experienced this incredible experience.
