Nestled on the banks of the Paraná River in the Corrientes province of Argentina sits the Golden FlyFishing Lodge. The lodge has an old style European flare and is host to avid fly fishers from all over the world. The game?? Golden Dorado! This toothy fresh water beauty offers the angler some of the most challenging fishing know to man. It can range from 2 pounds up to 40Lbs and will give you a fight that you will never forget.
The lodge is owned and operated by two brothers, Vittorio and Vicente Botta. Vittorio has a strong commitment to his guest’s comfort and over the years, he has taken on many roles within the Lodge: CHEF, bringing family recipes and international flavors to the kitchen; GUIDE, swimming after your fish if stuck among submerged trees; MANAGER, evacuating all guest’s doubts and accompanying in this incomparable experience. With special detail to comfort, adventure and flavor, it’s a combo that can only be understood as PASSION.
Vicente is a lover of fly fishing, the Golden Dorado, the Paraná River and the secrets that this majestic river holds. He has been practicing fly fishing for 17 years, and has dedicated his life to teaching, and to giving casting and fly tying clinics. He is certainly the dean of many of the Paraná river fishing guides.
Fishing for the Golden Dorado can be enjoyed most of the year but most popular from November through March. Read about: Hodges Afognak Island Lodge
