Carlos Heinsohn - Osteoglossum bicirrhosum - Aruana, Arawana

New product

An interesting target for anglers, especially on light tackle, aruana are found in a wide-range of water types. They have earned the epithet, monkey-fish (macaco d'agua) due to their penchant for leaping out of the water to pluck unsuspecting insects and even small birds from overhanging branches. They will strike both surface and subsurface baits as well as well-presented flies. (9" by 12" print)
