Tsimane Heliciopter Fly In
EXCITING GOLDEN DORADO FISHING IN THE BOLIVIAN AMAZON
The Tsimane Heli fly fishing programme offers an extraordinary golden dorado fly fishing experience in Bolivia. This, the latest Tsimane operation takes anglers to the wonderful headwaters, an area seldom seen by other human beings.
AN UNFORGETTABLE FLY FISHERS’ PLAYGROUND
Tsimane has a privileged geographical location due to its proximity to the headwaters of many rivers in the Moseten mountain chain. Anglers will have the opportunity to fish for large dorado, pacu and yatorana, in incomparable quantity and quality. The rivers and tributaries fished are wild and untouched waters.
The heli fishing programme includes two nights in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, seven nights all-inclusive at Pluma lodge and six days of helicopter fishing around Tsimane headwaters.
Tsimane heli fishing capacity is four anglers per week, divided into two couples, with a professional guide assisting each pair. The runs across 10 weeks in August, September, and October. Guests are transferred the five to 20 minutes in a Robinson R44 RAVEN II which has capacity for a pilot plus three passengers (two anglers and one guide). The helicopter will take each couple of anglers and their guide to a different spot each day. The guide will take lunch and drinks for the fishing day, and at around 5pm the helicopter will pick the groups up and return to the lodge. Guides have satellite communication to ensure permanent contact with the helicopter pilots and the lodge.
SUSTAINABLE JUNGLE LODGE
Pluma Lodge is a comfortable jungle lodge, currently comprising five double rooms with plans for five further en-suite rooms and a small spa. Every evening guests will enjoy delicious international cuisine in a well-appointed living and dining room. Satellite internet wireless connection and phone service is available.
A MUST VISIT, UN-TOUCHED, LOCATION FOR THE ADVNTUROUS FISHERMAN
Nestled between the Andes and the rainforest, crystal clear streams teem with life seemingly untouched by the hand of man. Within these waters lurk marauding dorado, which will test both fishermen and tackle to their limits.
Tsimane is around 200 km from La Paz and 470 km from Santa Cruz de la Sierra and sits within the Isiboro-Secure Indigenous Territory and National Park. The rivers fished are the headwaters of some tributaries of the Amazon River — shallow, clear transparent waters running downstream through the mountain and across the rainforest. It is one of the most raw and natural environments on earth.
