Try Argentina for a challenging dorado fly fishing experience !!
In cooperation with Mario Battiston, a renowned angler who pioneered in fishing dorados on a fly, we offer through several estancias and his own lodge various programs for dorado fly fishing, dove and partridge hunting, bird watching, etc. His meticulously selected guides are experts in fly fishing who now and understand the needs of every angler ensuring an unforgettable stay full of adventure and joy. The ESTEROS DEL IBERA region is home of the “Dorado”, a ember of the Salmon family (SalminusMaxilossus) of golden color and is always ready to attack the fly providing an exciting fight that will probably repeat several times for each angler during fishing day.
We fish for Dorado in clear waters. The season starts in October until the middle of May, these months are the best for Dorado flyfishing. We operate on comfortable boats with only two fishermen sharing one guide. We leave the lodge earl morning after breakfast and start to fly flyfish for dorado. At midday we return to the lodge for a nice meal and siesta. In the afternoon we return to the river and fish until the sun goes down. In the evening our chefs prepare first class dinner enjoyed with some of the best Argentine red wines. We only practice fly Fishing. We guarantee between 15 to 20 strikes a day, having the oportunity of catching 10 Dorados a day. The weight of them varies between 4 to 20 pounds. The best flies are dark colour with something bright on them. We recommend rods of 7-8 weight sinking tips or Teeny lines 200 - 300 grain.
