If you're ready to cross continents and challenge the Amazon jungle for the chance to fight 400 pounds of living dinosaur, you might just have what it takes to sport fish in Guyana. Rewa Eco-Lodge is one of the only places to offer a once-in-a-lifetime, catch-and-release fly fishing adventure for one of the world's largest and rarest freshwater game fish, Arapaima gigas.

The arapaima is a top predator in the Rupununi and plays a critical role keeping the ecosystem in balance. It’s also at the center of Rewa's sustainable form of ecotourism. To ensure the long-term health of the arapaima population, Rewa partners with the Indifly Foundation and conservation biologist Dr. Lesley de Souza to study and monitor the population.
To gather data that informs best practices and regulations for arapaima fishing, Rewa villagers, with Lesley's guidance, track the species’ migration and breeding behaviors which were previously a mystery. In order to protect the species, its crucial to know their movement patterns. This combination of actions has helped restore the arapaima population to more than 4,000.
