During an expedition to the famed Marie River, deep in Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest, female American angler Jimmie Rascoe landed one of the biggest speckled peacock (Cichla temensis) ever recorded by the IGFA on fly tackle.
Rascoe was casting a large streamer fly with guide Gerson Kavamoto when the massive peacock hit. After a tough five minute battle, Rascoe had the fish subdued – a 8.02 kg (17 lb 11 oz) peacock that could potentially earn her the new women’s 10 kg (20 lb) tippet class record.
After properly documenting her catch, Rascoe released the fish alive. The current IGFA record is vacant.
