Day 8: Amazon rain forest After our tour, lunch and monkey island, we went fishing. Yes! Fishing! We used sticks with fishing line and a hook attached. Our bait was beef. Why beef? ...because we were fishing for piranha! I could feel the piranha biting on my bait and pulling on the line, but I was too slow and could never catch it. Our guide caught one, which we then brought home and ate! Yum!
