Castle Rock, Colorado--Officials from Dorsey Pictures announce that this Saturday’s episode of Sporting Classics with Chris Dorsey - the most watched outdoor TV program in the world – features a family vacation ‘Dorsey style’ as the family going south – way south - to the Amazon basin where the fishing menu includes myriad different species ranging from super-charged peacock bass to catfish the size of deer. It’s a Swiss Family Robinson fly-in adventure to one of the most remote regions in the world where the rewards are nothing short of unforgettable angling.

The episode was filmed with Acute Angling out of the Picapau Lodge on a remote stretch of the Rio Travessao, isolated from the rest of the world by impassable waterfalls and inside a protected native reservation. The encore presentation of this adventure airs this Saturday on Outdoor Channel at 12:30 pm ET.
