Hi Armando,

Wow!

I guess you do not wade for them; look like giant piranha. Rivers look good, all except for the Payara.

Maybe no worse than our pike which are fresh water barracuda.

Nice write up,

Ard

Hi Hardyreels

There is no problem wading for them, they wont mess with you, if someone gets bitten thats because they made some mistakes while unhooking them. You really have to watch out.
Some rivers are better to fish from the boat, not too safe to wade them, strong currents, stingrays, anacondas, alligators etc.. are things you have to keep an eye on.

Thanks for the comment.

I think they are also called Vampire Fish or something like that. Jeremy Wade caught a few on River Monsters.
