Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

When you’re looking for the best place in the world to catch a dorado, we’d recommend Argentina. Here are three places where you can expect to have an excellent time reeling in a dorado. 

The Iberá wetlands protects one of the largest freshwater and marine systems in Argentina, with a surface area of over 8 million hectares in Corrientes and Entre Ríos Provinces.

First, there’s two ways to fish for Dorado: Big and Slow or Small and Fast. In Ibera wetlands in Argentina, water conditions are stable and predictable throughout the season therefore every month fishes equally well.

However, the outside temperatures and humidity are something to consider when planning your visit. The 8-weight, 9’4”, 4-piece fast action rod lets you cast heavier flies and also lessen arm fatigue. If possible, bring an additional 8 weight rod that can be strung up with a different line. Quality reels with working drags balance your rods and Reels should be loaded with 150 yards of 30 lb backing.

We’re not sure if it’s the most elusive fish in the world or the one that is most likely take a fly. But we do know that when you catch these fish, you’ll be doing something right. The Golden Mahseer, a native fish to the Himalayas, is one of the most elusive fish in the world. There are only three places left where it can be found: India’s Brahmaputra River, Nepal’s headwaters of Langtang Khola and Bhutan’s Manas River. In terms of appearance, it is small but very colorful with black vertical stripes on its sides and a large golden hump on its back. You’ll need nerves of steel to catch this fish because it takes off like lightning when disturbed by human activity or predators. If you’re lucky enough to catch one though, prepare for an unforgettable experience!

What is the hardest fish to catch on a fly and why? The answer may surprise you… Fly fishing might be a sport for all, but it is also a great way to learn about other species and about yourself. Here’s a list of some of the most difficult fish to catch on a fly rod.
