Rio Marie was designed to enjoy amazonian sunrises from a unique point of view and experience fly fishing from a whole new perspective.

You will navigate along 800km/600 miles of Marie River´s pure, thrilling waters where the renowned biggest peacock bass in the amazon lives.

All while enjoying second-to-none accommodation on the untamed amazon, an exemplar of green shipping: a vessel that is fully powered with solar energy and equipped with its own water treatment plant. 


Anglers fishing the Rio Marie River are accommodated aboard the “Untamed Amazon'' a state-of-the-art fishing yacht boasting every imaginable amenity you would expect in a top-notch fishing lodge


The Rio Marié is entirely located inside a far-reaching Indian Territory, an area of more than 2 million hectares. This untouched environment has more than 800 kilometers of rivers, 180 known creeks, 60 lakes, and three major tributaries inside the new operation area

We propose to develop the Rio Marié Project as a Fly Fishing ONLY destination in order to increase the river sustainability over time. With these unique resources in our hands, we designed the whole concept of the project as a new approach to targeting trophy peacock bass on the fly. Specifically, we are changing the idea of peacock bass fishing that has been adopted by the majority of the outfitters operating in the Amazon basin, based in numbers of small – medium size fish.

Our experience developing fly fishing operations deep inside virgin jungle areas, complete with high end services and refined fishing techniques, will not only be refreshingly new to the current Amazon fly fishing scene but we are confident it will revolutionize the way sophisticated traveling anglers look at an Amazonian angling experience forever.

The Rio Marié project offers the finest operation in the Amazon jungle with professional fly-fishing guides, state-of-the-art shallow draft fly fishing skiffs, experienced managers, and international chefs who create the perfect mix of local and fine international dishes. An extensive beverage selection, fine wines and top quality service round out the signature of quality anglers have come to expect from Untamed Angling, no matter how deep into the virgin rain forest wilderness areas we explore.



The Waters


The Rio Marié is born in the Northwest corner of the Brazilian Amazon, up near the Colombian border. It is a tributary of the upper Rio Negro. The Rio Negro basin is the largest drainage of "black" water in the world, with approximately 710,000 km² of land are and is currently one of the most preserved regions in the Amazon, with less than 0.5 % of deforestation. The Rio Negro is its main river, the second largest tributary of the Amazon River, which has the headwaters in the Serra do Junai Hills in Colombia and runs approximately 1700 km to its confluence with the Solimoes River near the jungle city of Manaus.

The Rio Marie is entirely located inside a far-reaching Indigenous Territory and approximately 500 miles northwest from Manaus, which is our operation's base point and the most important city in Brazilian Amazon.

The fishing operation utilizes an area of more than 2 million hectares. This untouched environment has more than 800 kilometers of rivers, more than 180 known creeks, 60 lakes, and three major tributaries. Plenty of water to keep us busy chasing fish that rarely will see humans and anglers.


This is the first exclusive fly-fishing only project allowed and supported by the Brazilian Government. Official Environmental Institutes worked together with the Indian Association to create the very first official sport fishing operation in Brazil inside an indigenous Indian Territory. This brings a new level of commitment and cooperation between all parties associated inside the Amazon region.

The Fishing


Largest Peacock Bass in the World!

The Rio Marie’ boasts the largest population of giant peacock bass (fish up to and in excess of 20 pounds) than any other river in Brazil. Anglers looking for a legitimate shot a true monster peacock; or a new World Record could not pick a more appropriate river to fish than the Rio Marie – truly the Rio de Gigantes – “River of Giants”!


Rio Marié is unique in Brazil, with more than 500 miles of exclusive access to the only catch-and-release, "fly fishing only" river in a part of the world where rivers are often shared by half dozen fishing operations. 

This river area is huge, encompassing nearly a vast amount of virgin waters, boasting a healthy population of giant Peacock Bass. For anglers, this translates into very real opportunities to consistently hook and release much larger-than-average Peacock Bass on the fly.

Few, other than local natives, had ever explored the spiderweb of tributaries or investigated the labyrinth of oxbow lagoons that nurses this incredible fishery. Those who risked it all the first season came home to tell fish stories about huge Peacock Bass that are hard to swallow. We are just beginning to scratch the surface of what the Rio Marié has to offer, and already realize the Rio Marié is the ultimate trophy Peacock Bass fishery. Even the locals call it "Rio de Gigantes!"

During each fishing week, a serious angler is bound to hook into a good number of Temensis peacock bass whose average size is astounding at over 10 lbs, not to mention a significant amount of 20+pound trophies. Every day fly anglers are casting in the Rio Marie they are in the legitimate pursuit of the next world record Peacock. 

And when anglers are happy with their double dgits of the day and want to go lighter, be prepared for dozens of 3 to 8 pound butterfly peacoks which are extremelly stroing and fun to catch with 7 weight rods and poppers.

In 2014, we quickly organized for the first exploratory season of five weeks with 8 fly anglers per session. Those 39 anglers helped us to explore and learn and fish nearly 800 kilometers (500 miles) of the Rio Marié. What was discovered was a veritable trophy peacock bass paradise. 

The first week reports were mind-boggling: 24 fish over 10lbs / 19 fish over 13 / 6 over 18 / biggest of the week 22.5 pounds / IGFA 20 pound class tippet broken. Each succeeding fly fishing week was just like the first, with incredible numbers of monster peacocks recorded and released including several approaching world record dimensions. The tally of huge peacock bass landed during the inaugural season on the Rio Marie’ has quickly separated it from every other river on Earth.

Each skiff is equipped with 2 large casting platforms, a push poling platform and an electric trolling motor with remote control, for silent moving inside the lagoons and along the river. 90HP four stroke Yamaha engines provide the power to move long distances quickly. GPS and VHF radios are on board to keep guides in communication and aware of each others position.

GIVING BACK TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLES - Untamed Angling Brazil - Marie Rio de Gigantes - indigene person from Amazon - Untamed Angling Brazil - Marie Rio de Gigantes - indigene person from Amazon




The Rio Marié is an award winning collaborative program between local Indigenous Indians the Brazilian Government and Untamed Angling in an effort to promote conservation, sustainability and culture. Your dollars help the local native people by providing funding for health care and access to education. Additionally, you help support one of the most comprehensive and aggressive scientific studies of peacock bass, and jungle environs they habitat by the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA). A portion of your dollars are making a difference in native’s life and the understanding and conservation of the Amazon Jungle and its native species.

The Rio Marié project is the first government sanctioned operation in Brazil developed as a joint-venture between a private enterprise and an Indian Association. The project is set up as a fly fishing destination but with heavy involvement of the indigenous tribes creating a great social responsibility concept. We work as partners with the Lower Río Negro Association of Indigenous Communities (ACIBRN) who represents the 14 communities of the area, and the Río Negro Federation of Indigenous Organizations (FOIRN), who represents all the Indian communities in the entire Río Negro basin.

The model of The Rio Marié project was based on the sustainable development of tourism programs, specializing in fly-fishing, created by Untamed Angling in our beginnings.

Our native partners receive the projects benefits directly from the tourism income as well as from the jobs it provides as fishing guides, river inspectors, transportation, maintenance, maids, chef assistants and boat operators, among others. The native people also received organized job training to begin the operation during the 2014 exploratory season, a process that will be repeated yearly and shared throughout the tribes solidifying the concept of this ambitious project.

The project has a significant user fee on all visiting anglers. The funds from the fee will primarily be used for social projects, infrastructure development, transportation, and medical and education projects.

This fee represents an important step in the continuing effort to protect our ability to continue to share this amazing and unique part of the world.
