It’s a true blessing that our Private Rivers have NO BITING insects, and here’s why:

  • We only fish where low water levels which have reduced the habitat for insect larvae and eggs.

  • With one or two exceptions, we fish sections of our Private Rivers that are completely devoid of human presence, which is a prerequisite for biting insects in the Amazon during the dry season.

  • Our almost daily mobility eliminates any possibility of meaningful encounters with the few biting bugs that might be around.

  • All of the waters we fish have high tannin levels (from extensive leaf decay), which discourages the development of biting insects.

  • However, if you may wish to visit a jungle community you will encounter biting insects. Indeed, you must put on your deed repellent!
