Fish for Golden Dorado with Duranglers, the most ferocious freshwater predator!

There is very little dispute among the international angling community that the golden dorado of South America is the hardest fighting freshwater fish on the planet.  The Dorado, (Salminus Maxillosus) gets its name from it’s bright gold color.  The aggressive nature of the dorado along with its incredibly ferocious strike, long hard runs, high jumps, and fighting stamina has attracted anglers from around the world for years.

Duranglers now has the opportunity to fish a new lodge and new area of the Ibera’ Wetlands in Argentina for this spectacular fish, and we are looking for a few anglers to help us explore this new fishing destination. The southern part of the Ibera’ wetlands and the Parana River have been the focus of fishing lodges and trips the past few years. While the southern Parana has a well-earned reputation, we are heading to the northern part of the wetlands where the permit to fish this region was issued this fall. Although this area is not targeting giant dorado, numerous fish between 5 and 20 pounds is average and…most of them have never seen a fly.

The trip is a Saturday to Saturday, Feb. 23- Mar. 2, 2019 with 6 full days of fishing. Because this is a new lodge and fishing area, The Andes Drifters are offering us a special deal for this first trip. While the regular price for a week of Dorado fishing through the lodge is $5650. The discounted price for this first year is $4200, and is all inclusive excluding airfare.  This is a once in a lifetime trip at a price that cannot be found anywhere else if you want to target Golden Dorado!

The maximum number of anglers for the week is six so please call the shop and talk to John Flick at 970-385-4081, or e-mail John as soon as possible if you are interested in joining Duranglers to another fantastic fishing destination!
