The River People of the Amazon

A Riverboat Adventure By Dr. Mart铆n Ar贸stegui

The old Amazonian riverboat chugged along, traveling slowly upriver in the Cuinni River, a tributary of the Rio Negro. Sitting in the upper deck of this old warrior of the river, I could see everything around us. On our way to our fishing destination, we passed by small settlements of the river people that dot many riverbanks in the Amazon. The rhythmic noise of the diesel engine would be frequently broken by the noise made by howler monkeys, green parrots and large blue and yellow macaws. We crossed path with many small riverboats along the way.

I have fished in the Amazon many times, but this trip was I have fished in the Amazon many times, but this trip was very special because we were traveling for one week on the Rita de Cassia, an old riverboat pressed into action at the last moment for this sport fishing adventure. I was going back in time, no compass, no GPS, no fast boats, just a an old river captain that knew the river so well he could navigate all night with no problem and a very efficient crew that attended to all of our needs very efficiently. The fishing was very good and all of my companions caught a good number of fish but to me the best part was going back

in time on this old riverboat. At the end of this memorable week we returned to Barcelos, a small town in the banks of the Rio Negro. I remember Barcelos as the site of the annual Tropical Fish Festival. Many years ago I had the opportunity to witness this musical festival, where the town’s people dress in beautiful Amazonian river costumes and spend the night dancing to the most exiting music I ever heard. This festival commemorates the tropical fish that bring life to Barcelos and happiness to so many people throughout the world. if you are interested of fishing in brazil contact: Alan Zaremba at: or Ian Arthur de Sulocki and Alexandre Arruda at:

Baha in the

Getaway to your home or Marina

Picture this: When your day of shopping and sight-seeing is done, your home away from home is a gated enclave on

the east end of Nassau — and the gateway to the Exumas. You drive past homes along the beach valued at more

than $3 million. Once you enter Palm Cay’s private gates

you enter your own quiet island haven, your beachfront Bahamian home, where the lifestyle here is like nothing you’ve known before.

Scan this QR code to see Palm Cay for yourself.

amas Palm Cay is a private residence enclave that upon its completion will feature 300 expertly designed residences. Each home features quintessential British Colonial architecture with colorful palettes that exude warmth and liveliness all year round. Our powder soft beaches are ideal for sandcastles and moonlit walks along one of the most intoxicating ocean views in the Bahamas. The Marina clubhouse has an in-house restaurant that serves all weekend long as well as available to cater events as needed at The Club at Palm Cay. For the sports enthusiast, fishing, sailing, motor boating, snorkeling, diving, tennis, yoga, a playground for the kids and a fitness center – all available for your pleasure. Palm Cay offers a full-service, 194-slip deepwater marina that can provision your boat beautifully for a week at sea or a day of big game fishing. The Bahamas is hailed as the Billfish Capital of the world, and Palm Cay is the launching pad for what is quite possibly a boater’s paradise – the 700 islands of The Bahamas. The tax advantages are well documented in the Bahamas as are their beautiful, warm waters.

HOW TO SPEAK BONEFISH By Pat Ford Everyone agrees that bonefish are one of the most amazing game fish on our planet. What makes them so special is that they creep out of the channels and depths onto sand and grass flats that range from a few feet to a few inches in depth to feed and that is where they are the biggest challenge for the fly rod angler and it’s that challenge that makes them so much fun. Here are my thoughts on how to go after and catch this grey ghost. First of all you have to go where bonefish live, South Florida, the Bahamas, Belize, Mexico, Venezuela, Christmas Island, the Seychelles and probably several others that I can’t think of at the moment.

Second, you have to find a good guide. If you’re staying at a Lodge, guides will be provided. Ask for references…don’t settle for just anyone. A good guide will know where the fish are on each tide, where there are lots of fish and where you will find the big ones if that’s what your after. Tim Mahaffey is one of the best bonefish anglers I’ve ever seen and he uses 4 patterns (mostly gotchas and small crabs)– he just carries them in different weights. Bonefish travel in different depths at different tides. Sometimes they are over white sand and sometimes they are feeding in turtle grass. General rule – light flies over sand, dark flies over dark bottom. Practice fly casting before you go. Many anglers want to go fly fishing and don’t know how to cast. Practicing in a bonefish flat on an exotic destination is very expensive. Prepare ahead of time and you will enjoy your trip that much more.

In April and May many of the top sport fishing boats on the U.S. East and Gulf Coast make their way to Cap Cana’s fabulous marina as well as a large number from Puerto Rico and other Caribbean nations to enjoy the start of the white marlin season. These boats are attracted to Cap Cana because of the notoriety the area has gained as the Caribbean’s new hotspot and to compete in the prestigious International Cap Cana Billfish Shootout, known as the Grand Prix of billfish tournaments, which will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year from June 5th thru the 11th. In fact, the Dominican Republic was recently named the world’s number one billfish destination by the reputable Billfish Report!

And why shouldn’t visiting sport fishing boats want to visit Cap Cana? With only the first phase having been completed offering 115 slips, Marina Cap Cana is positioned to be one of the most complete state-of-the-art marinas in the Caribbean, already providing the perfect mix of recreation and relaxation. Located only seven minutes from Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ -second busiest airport in the Caribbean), with direct flights from most major East Coast U.S. cities as well as many major European and Latin American cities. In Cap Cana there are available long term villa and condo rentals for the entire fishing season and there are four luxurious five star hotels to choose from for short stays. The fishing season lasts into November with white marlin transitioning to blue ones in July and sailfish are added to the mix in October when many boats score multiple grand slams.

In addition to the fabulous fishing (last year resulted in an average of 7.44 billfish per boat in three days of fishing) the Shootout offers great nightly social functions culminating with the Awards Banquet to be held the night of June 10th at the elegant Al Sol Luxury Village located on the west side of the marina inlet. Parts of the proceeds from each year’s event are always donated to local children’s charities. Taking all of this into consideration it is worth quoting the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Tourism slogan, especially as it pertains to fishing “DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HAS IT ALL”!

Cayo Caulker, Belice By Dion E. Vansen and Rebecca Coutant

Cayo Caulker is a small limestone coral island measuring about 5 miles (8.0 km) north to south by less than 1 mile (1.6 km) east to west and located 20 miles north-northeast of Belize City. Its nickname is La Isla Cari単osa and its motto is Go Slow. In 1870, Luciano Reyes purchased the island from Queen Victoria. A narrow waterway called The Split which separates the island in two is the main beach area. After a 45 minute ride on a high-speed boat from Belize City, we arrive in Caye Caulker. This tiny island has it all! Snorkeling and diving trips to the Belize Barrier Reef (the second largest in

the world) are just a few minutes away. There, you can swim with nurse sharks, sting rays, sea turtles, manatees and at the same time admire the beautiful reef. On a sunny day the Lazy Lizard bar & grill, by the Split, is my favorite place. Ideal for a refreshing drink, water sports and a breathtaking sunset. On Fridays, open jam sessions at the barrier reef sports bar from 4-7pm bring out all the island’s best musicians. The local and international cuisine is featured in most restaurants on Front Street; even pizza is on the menu. After sunset, the party is on at the I & I Reggae bar where you can dance in Caribbean style. Are you ready to go slow, take it really easy and relax? If yes, then I highly recommend you add Caye Caulker to your next travel itinerary.

The River People of the Amazon By el Dr. Martín Aróstegui

The vast Amazonian rainforest is so dense that the only form of travel is through the vast network of rivers and streams that carve this magnificent jungle. For many years I have visited this wonderful place in search of fishing adventures and always have been fascinated by my encounters with the people that make the rivers and the jungle their home. These river people are called the ribereños. In contrast to our complex lives in the city, the ribereños lead simple subsistence lives that revolve around the rivers and streams of their surroundings. All travel is done on rustic riverboats that also serve as their permanent home. Ribereños rely on dugout canoes for fishing and hunting. They go about their lives without the benefits of most amenities we take for granted,

such as electricity, air conditioning, computers or modern ways of communication. The river people survive by planting plantains, cassava and others simple crops in small plots adjacent to the river. Most of their protein needs are met by hunting for small animals and fishing for a number of species that are abundant in the Amazon. They generate some income by collecting tropical fish that they sell for export to many parts of the world. Health care can be a problem but ribere単os are very knowledgeable about the use of medicinal plants from the rainforest and only have access to modern medicines when they travel by larger communities in the banks of larger rivers. The ribere単os have shown a great deal of resilience and adaptability to the seasonal changes in the Amazon. I am sure that they will be around for many years to come, forming part of the great tapestry of cultures that make our planet such a fascinating place.

THE REAL MARCH MADNESS BROKE OUT AT THE CASA DE CAMPO BLUE MARLIN CLASSIC By Rick Alvarez Casa de Campo, La Romana, Dominican Republic – To say that fishing was outstanding during the inaugural Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic would be an understatement, unparalleled would indeed be a more accurate description! At the end of day one the fleet of 16 tournament boats had already released a whopping 39 blue marlin and at lines out on day two, the total

had risen to 73 blues. Numbers such as these represent an incredible average of 4.56 blues per boat in this two day event. It was Floridian Frank Rodriguez’s 70’ Viking Fa La Me with Captain Rob Moore that ran away from the rest of the fleet from the get go by releasing six blues on day one and repeating with another six on day two to complete an even dozen in just two days. Dates are set for 2015 when the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic will move to a three fishing day’s format with a lay day, with excellent activities already in the works including a skeet shoot competition and a golf scramble on the lay day.  Mark your calendars and please join us.

Davis Instruments offers the Motor Caddy to make hoisting and carrying most 2 to 15 hp outboards quick, simple and safe. The Motor Caddy provides a self-centering handle that works equally well for lifting motors by hand or with a lanyard or hoist. Its improved design includes a longer harness strap to fit four-stroke models. A shortened security strap provides extra protection when transporting streamlined engine cases.

It’s only fitting that a made-to-measure luxury yacht should receive deluxe trim in every detail. That’s why the 94’ Bodacious now sports a Frigibar Industries customized Commodore model freezer with cushion on its rear sundeck. Built specifically to match the yacht’s color scheme, the stunning unit showcases Frigibar’s ability to tailor its world-class marine refrigeration equipment to virtually any customer need. Bodacious, from the renowned Italian superyacht firm Sanlorenzo Yachts, boasts a sleek, contemporary look with numerous top-end touches throughout. The owner wanted cold storage on the back sundeck, but needed it to blend in to the existing décor. Choosing a marine refrigeration specialist for the project was easy, since the owner had experienced the unparalleled quality of Frigibar on a previous vessel.



Landing big game fish often demands perseverance through rough waters in remote locations, for days on end. The crew of the 60’ Spencer Carol Libby now has an advantage as they troll for giant bluefin tuna and other trophy fish. A Seakeeper gyro stabilizer creates a safe, stable platform that reduces fatigue, enabling the crew to focus on the catch. The gyro was installed by American Custom Yachts (ACY) of Stuart, Florida, as part of an extensive refit. It’s the first Seakeeper installation on a Spencer, and the first Seakeeper gyro refit for ACY. Carol Libby is a 2013 model powered by twin 1,150 hp Caterpillar C18s, with ZF gears and a 1,500 gallon fuel capacity.

SHARKS: THE ANIMAL ANSWER GUIDE By Johns Hopkins University Press Answering every conceivable question about sharks, authors Gene Helfman and George H. Burgess describe the fascinating biology, behavior, diversity (there are more than 1,000 species worldwide), and cultural importance of sharks, their close relationship to skates and rays, and their critical role in healthy ecosystems in their new book Sharks: The Animal Answer Guide. Helfman and Burgess take readers on a round�the� world tour of shark habitats, which include oceans as well as lakes and even rivers (as far up the Mississippi as St. Louis). They describe huge, ferocious predators like (Great) White and Tiger sharks and species such as Basking and Whale sharks that feed on microscopic prey yet can grow to lengths of more than 40 feet. The mysterious and powerful Greenland shark, the authors explain, reaches a weight of 2,200 pounds on a diet of seal flesh. Small (less than two feet long) Cookie cutter

sharks attack other sharks and even take a chunk out of the occasional swimmer. Despite our natural fascination with sharks, we have become their worst enemy. Many shark species are in serious decline and a number are threatened with extinction as a result of overfishing and persecution. Sharks: The Animal Answer Guide presents a perfect mix of current science, history, anthropology, intriguing facts, and gripping photographs. Whether your fascination with sharks stems from fear or curiosity,

your knowledge of these animals will improve immensely when you consult this book. Gene Helfman is a professor emeritus at the Odum School of Ecology's Program in Conservation Ecology and Sustainable Development, University of Georgia. He is coauthor of Fishes: The Animal Answer Guide, also published by Johns Hopkins. George H. Burgess is coordinator of museum operations and director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
