Colombia

Colombia



Colombia is fast becoming the world's most sought-after adventure destination

 

You can fish for Peacock bass from Florida to Brazil, from Panama to Singapore, but until recently it was almost impossible to chase the fish in Colombia, even though the country’s rivers are teeming with them. For decades, the Eastern half of the nation, a spiderweb of streams tumbling down from the Andes to the Orinoco and Amazon rivers, remained unexploited. 

Now, the outer regions are opening up to locals and tourists alike, who are flocking to the country in record numbers. Travelers are now exploring untouched seaside villages, birding and hiking trails in jungles that are among the most biodiverse on the planet. 

In the flatlands, or llanos, part of what’s drawing travelers is the pristine rivers.

The Fishing

The Orinoco camp is located on the part of the Orinoco with the most rapids. The natural beauty is unrivaled, and the pull of a land-based 20+ pound payara in strong currents is also without equal.

The amount of fish and low pressures means the fishing here is world class. You can expect to run into big payara, sardinata and bicuda. 3 rapid systems can be fished from this camp, as well as the mouth of the Tomo river. 

After the two days of payara fishing, you will head up the Tuparro river to access the Peacock waters and change camps. You will transverse the beautiful rapids of the Tuparro river, where you will need to walk 150 meters. Then the crew will drag the boats through 40 meters of dangerous but beautiful rapids.

We will be entering the Tuparro National park, with over 500,000 hectares of prime wilderness. We will reach the Tuparro camp where we will be spending the next 4 nights. The time spent in the Tuparro will be under the protection of the local autonomous Sikuani natives.

Caño Bocón is named after this species. Eagerly taking artificial lures and flies, Matrinxa are a perfect light tackle target.

Tierra del Fuego is considered as one of the great destinations for catching trout. This place has kept a certain degree of mysticism that is a magnet for any adventurer who craves a unique and unrepeatable experience. And although life does not abound on the terrestrial level, for some years now its waters keep an infinity of fish species, or large sizes and varieties, which have transformed this remote stage in an internationally recognized place for sports fishing and fishing with fly. #patagonia #flyfishinglife #fishing #trout #argentina #pointeroutfitters #explore #aroundtheworld #outside #outsiders
