Earlier in the summer we helped our good friends at Silver Bow Fly Shop put a group together at Tsimane’s Pluma Lodge. Below you will some trip leader Michael Visintainer’s great photos. All of us at Fly Water want to thank Mike for letting us help with the adventure and sharing his photos.
First I want to thank my adventurous group for making this awesome trip possible: Wayne, Spencer, Poncho, David, Kevin and Sam. Second I want to thank all the people at Pluma Lodge. The lodge was amazing, the staff was incredible, especially the manager Chucky, Bandilnia, and the food of the Argentinean cook was wonderful.
Not more than twenty minutes into the trip Spencer hooked into and landed the groups first dorado using a large top water streamer on his Sage X. Adrenaline was high in the group as we watched Spencer real in the large, powerful fish. Pictures alone cannot describe their explosive fight but it is safe to say everyone quickly learned that the Dorado attacks a fly like a bass, leverages like a steelhead and jumps like a tarpon and Tsmane is a spectacular adventure.
