That was a nice catch! Incidentally, we could consider tenkara a traditional method of fishing for Peacock Bass.
“In South America, PINDA-SIRIRICA (PINDÁ=Hook. SIRIRICA=Ficticious) was practiced by Indians in the Amazon for fishing for tucunaré (peacock bass), matrinxá (Brycon cephalus) and apapá (Pellona castelnaeana). It consisted of using a pindaíba rod (like a cane pole), a braided line of tucum (fibers from a palm tree), and a kind of streamer made with a parrot feather that covered a hook made of bone or wood.
Using the rustic rod, the streamer was cast into the water and retrieved with motions that imitated a small fish that was wounded or fleeing, which would be the prey of tucunaré, matrinxã, and other fish.
As it was practiced by indigenous peoples, it may be deduced that fly-fishing has existed since the stone age.”
Translated from the website of the ABPM (Brazilian Fly-fishing Association)

Great, thanks for sharing.

We call them tucunaré here in Puerto Rico too.
