David Fields and his Fishin’ Expeditions staff is your direct outfitting link to all destinations. With fishin’ expeditions and Amazon Fishing Expeditions you can be assured of a professional, responsive and dedicated team located in the US with operations in North, Central and South America. Most importantly, you can be assured that you are placing your confidence and trust in an alliance of outfitters with unsurpassed experience and dedicated personnel. David Fields’ Fishin’ Expeditions is an ever expanding adventure outfitting company always investigating new and exciting destinations throughout the Americas to add to our list of exotic fishing adventures and tours.

Fishin’ Expeditions was founded by David Fields of Mt. Vernon, Illinois. In 2004, David concluded a successful 25 year career in the petroleum industry as an independent oil producer and consultant and returned to one of his life’s earlier passions, the fishing industry where he was a tackle and marine manufactures representative in the early 70’s. An angling enthusiast since childhood, his introduction into international angling began in 1975 with a trip to Honduras to fish the famed Lake Yojoa Lagoona. Since that trip he has escorted family, friends, business associates and now hundreds of clients throughout the Americas in search of the most exciting fishing adventure destinations available. For over thirty-five years his angling quest has taken him all across North America…South of the Border to the infamous trophy lakes of Mexico…through Belize, Honduras and Central America…and on to South America in search of the explosive Peacock Bass and other exotics of the Amazon Rain Forest. The outfitting company, Fishin’ Expeditions, is the natural development of David’s continuing desire to share the excitement of adventure fishing with those that wish to join him. New destinations are being added annually.

The formula for the rapid and sustained success of Amazon Fishing Expeditions and parent, Fishin’ Expeditions, is the ability to offer anglers lightly pressured, remote fisheries, experienced guides, first class equipment and accommodations, without sacrificing comfort. The Amazon Fishing Expeditions Team and Fishin’ Expeditions have joined together to offer traveling anglers a hassle-free, memorable, first-class fishing adventure.

A high percentage of client rebooking and phenomenal growth is indicative that these outfitters have indeed found the formula to be highly successful and sought after for the Amazon Exotics like the explosive Peacock bass. Excellence in outfitting is not simply a corporate motto…it is a client by client requirement. __Don Cutter, Former Amazon Outfitter/Operator

We hope you’ll allow us the opportunity to earn your adventure angling and destination specific business. I hope to be able to host a trip for you someday.

Your host,

David Fields
