Pirahna fishing in the Amazon is pretty awesome. There were so many fish I totally thought the lodge planted them there. But no, it's just that cool. Sneaky lil' things they are, though. They kept stealing the meat on our hooks and swimming away.

Later, the lodge cooked up our catch for lunch. Kinda like sardines.

Address: Any Amazon Lodge
