This is a variation of Arari’s natural color! The red and yellow combination is very efficient for Peacock Bass and can be seen quickly and at great distances!



Over 20 years ago when our Amazon program manager Nadson Silva (Pelado) was still a guide he created a fly that remains a very important pattern and copied by many. A small baitfish of the Amazon called the Arari is at the top of the menu for the Peacock Bass. This small fish is mostly silver with some Yellow highlights and has a striking feature, its red tail. This Streamer pattern is a perfect match. A red, elongated tail moves beyond the materials of the bait itself tied on a piece of monofilament. The amount of material is well balanced so that this Streamer sinks easily and moves more naturally!
