Visitors to the Brazilian Amazon can try their hand at fishing, jungle style. The main object of the activity is to catch the famed piranha fish, a task made considerably easier during the dry season when there is much less water for them to hide in. You will head out in a motorboat in the company of an expert guide, who will help you cast your bait to make a catch, sometimes a piranha, or perhaps a different Amazon fish. Once the sun goes down you will head back to the lodge and perhaps cook up your catch. Near the Juma lodge there is also a Pirarucu Floating Dock where you will have the chance to feed these giant fish and observe their impressive strength.
