Sardinata Real (Pellona castelnaena) is the great prize when you fish in the Orinoco or the Amazon and their tributaries. Great fighters, ready for topwater flies and really beautiful shiny silohuettes. Unfortunately this one (15 lb.) couldn't survive after swallowing a Dahlberg Diver to its gills.

Rio Bocón, tributary of the Inirida River, Colombia.
