Running with the Curimbata


Running with the Curimbata

In this humorous, first-person short story, the reader is treated to a cautionary tale of fishing in a remote wilderness area of Brazil. Based loosely on real experiences, our clueless protagonist tries his hand at fishing undeterred by issues of communication, mosquitoes, piranhas, fishing regulations, and incompetence. Entertaining and semi-autobiographical, replete with dry humor and droll self-mockery, this work is a must for those planning to fish solo in a foreign country who think a fishing guide is superfluous, fishing skill is overrated, all mosquito repellents are equal, maneuvering a boat with an outboard motor is an inborn instinct, and a good way to meet friends is via tangling lines and boat ramming.
