Suriname, Courantyne

Suriname, one of the last virgin rainforests in South America, lying near the equator, Suriname has a tropical climate, and temperatures do not vary a lot throughout the year. The year has two wet seasons, from December to early February and from late April to mid-August. Here you will find world record sized Wolfish, Monster Lau Lau catfish, Giant red tailed cats. These wolfish are like junk yard dogs they are a worthy opponent, one of the strongest freshwater fish we’ve encounter. These fish are tough bring the 80lb braided line and 8/0 to 13/0 circle hooks 4X hooks and your wire leader you will need them. The camp moves as the fishing dictates in our several visits here we have seen numerous animals and many species of birds including the rare sunbird and countless numbers of macaws and toucans. I have visited many locations in the Amazon basin and this is truly one of my favorite places, the pristine jungle, the people, the food. Suriname is truly a gem. This location is well off the beaten path. Get here before everyone else does this is the pearl of the rainforests of South America this is a mobile tent operation.
