MANAUS, Brazil (November 5, 2019) — Untamed Angling is pleased to announce Xingu Lodge — a new destination for jungle fly fishing. Located on the Rio Xingu in the Brazilian Amazon, Xingu Lodge will focus primarily on fly fishing for giant payara.
Payara, one of the ultimate jungle predators, are known largely for their sizable teeth and aggressive behavior. For many years, Untamed Angling sought to find waters where fly anglers could target these remarkable fish and find true trophy payara.
“We searched tirelessly for the ultimate destination for payara,” states Rodrigo Salles, partner and CEO of Brazil Destinations for Untamed Angling. “It turned out that the best location we could find was on the Rio Xingu — a river completely protected on indigenous land by the Kayapo people and very close to Kendjam. It was an exciting secret they were holding, and we are thrilled that they are sharing this special place with us and our guests. It is an exclusive destination with world-class fishing.”
Untamed Angling has exclusive access to these protected waters, where payara are known to reach more than 20 pounds. Additionally, Rio Xingu’s clear waters are ideal for fly anglers who want to target payara with a range of fly fishing techniques and also target additional species such as peacock bass, wolf fish, and more.
Untamed Angling is currently undergoing an exploratory season and working on a new lodge in preparation of their 2020 season. Xingu Lodge has easy travel logistics, and accommodations will include comfortable double occupancy wood cabins with box spring beds, en suite bathrooms, hot water, electricity, satellite WIFI, and delicious food. The camp is located on the banks of the Rio Xingu and looks out over a gorgeous rapid and pool.

Ken Tanaka of Wish4Fish visited Tsimane for what was a memorable trip — much of it captured in a new video.
“Ken Tanaka of Wish4Fish is back on the water! This time fly fishing in Bolivia at Tsimane Lodge with Untamed Angling.
I was down in Bolivia with Untamed Angling and Tsimane Lodge at their Secure Lodge in the jungle of Bolivia. I can say as of now this is my favorite fishery in the world. The chance to catch Golden Dorado, Pacu and Yatorana on the fly! If you’re lucky you can have the chance at some insane catfish like the Surubi and Moturo!
If you’re looking for a fly fishing destination for Golden Dorado then look no further, Untamed Angling is the only answer.”

SANTA CRUZ DE LA SIERRA, Bolivia (July 18, 2019) — Untamed Angling is pleased to announce the expansion of their operations into Cuba with El Faro Lodge.
Well-known for their lodges in Bolivia and Brazil, as well as their commitment to finding remote and pristine fly fishing destinations that offer world-class experiences unlike any other, Untamed Angling is excited to share Western Cuba with the angling world.
Backcountry flats, coral reefs, and expansive bluewater make these remote waters especially attractive for fly fishing and conventional angling. The Guanahacabibes Peninsula and its national park and biosphere reserve have been preserved for 40 years and offer world-class fishing for many flats and offshore species. The region is not only still wild and without fishing pressure, but it is also home to a unique mix of beaches, channels, mangroves, flats, and bluewater, thereby allowing anglers to take on different waters and experiences each day. El Faro Lodge will be the first and only beachfront fishing lodge in Cuba and will offer the first-class service and luxuries that Untamed Angling destinations are known for.
“We are very excited about this new destination in Cuba,” states Marcelo Pérez, CEO and founder of Untamed Angling. “This wild, beautiful, and huge national park and biosphere reserve offer anglers a wide variety of species and many diverse environments. This will be a new challenge and adventure that we are pleased to share with fellow anglers.”
As is with all of their destinations, Untamed Angling is deeply committed to protecting the ecosystem and preserving a way of life for the local community through sustainable fly fishing tourism. With their partners in Cuba, including the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and Eckerd College, andCuban institutions, including CIM-UH, Guanahacabibes National Park, and the Center for Marine Research at the University of Havana (CIM-UH), Untamed Angling is actively supporting research programs and biological data collection to further understand the fishery and ecosystems.
El Faro Lodge will welcome its first clients for an exploratory season in May 2020.
