Costa Jungle Fish Trailer: Large Arapaima Caught

 

 

Follow three expert fishermen as they undertake on a two-week voyage deep into the heart of Guyana's jungle. Their mission: to demonstrate that the arapaima, one of the world's largest freshwater fish, can be caught with a fly rod. If they succeed, it will prove that the country's fledgling sports fishing industry is viable. And that will mean a brighter future for the native peoples, the rainforest they call home -- and the endangered monster arapaima itself.
