Outfitter Tackle Recommendations

    TackleTake the right tackle, or your trip will be less than successful.  Fishing for Peacock in South America will be "foreign" to many - pun intended.  Very little similar North American experiences can prepare you for some of the thrills of the southernmost America.  Most good booking agents offer a listing of tackle recommendations for a particular species with precise information on lure/fly name or model, type, size, color, manufacturer, and even suggested quantity.

    With such insight, the traveling angler can put together a tackle box containing the most appropriate selection of lures for the trip.  The detailed lists will also cover all types rods, reels and other equipment that are best suited for the venture.  The most appropriate action or weight and the best suited line in terms of strength, type (monofilament, braid) and even manufacturer will be noted.

    A good booking agent may also offer information on modifications that will make the lure even better for the intended fish.  Replacing standard hooks with heavy-duty 3X saltwater hooks is one such move that will enhance the catch rate on some of the more aggressive species.  Also, you may need to change out smaller split rings, propellers, or other hardware on some plugs.

    The professional booking agent will also be able to recommend the best places to obtain the right stuff.  He'll have contact phone and address for the ordering sources.  Some agents offer written advice on specific strategies for the fish you are after.  My four books on Peacock Bass are loaded with tackle recommendations Luresand tactics that produce the best fishing and largest fish. Check them out!
