Jungle fly fishing for dorado, pacu and more
Due to the clarity of the water, sight fishing is often possible with floating lines the order of the day to tempt the myriad of species found in these rivers.
Fishing is predominantly wet-wading, whilst the boat and guide is at hand to take you to the next likely spot. Beyond the amazing and unique fishing opportunities, the abundant wildlife, flora and fauna with its amazing hues, sounds and smells transform the experience into a trip that you will never forget.
Amazing comfort in a beautiful lodge constructed from local materials…
Secure Lodge is a comfortable jungle property comprising safari-style double occupancy tent cabins on elevated wooden platforms.
The six person Secure Lodge is the furthest upstream of the three camps and focuses on the uppermost reaches of the Secure River. It is accessed from an airstrip in the little village of Asunta. From there it is about a 10 minute boat ride upstream to the lodge.
The lodge has been carved out of the jungle and built using a combination of site-milled hardwood and material shipped up the river. It is in a spectacular setting and is best described as both rustic and elegant. Facilities include a handsome hardwood lodge with an open bar, Wi-Fi and delicious meals paired with excellent Argentine wines.
Sleeping accommodation is three spacious double occupancy safari style tents with comfortable beds, full linens and private bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. The lodge is also equipped with generator power with battery back-up, on demand hot water, and free wireless internet service.
In the middle of the jungle, where the Andes and the rainforest meet…
Nestled between the Andes and the rainforest run crystal clear streams teeming with life, seemingly untouched by man. Within these fish-rich waters lurk marauding dorado, which will test both angler and tackle to their limits.
Tsimané is around 200km from La Paz and 470km from Santa Cruz de la Sierra and is within an Indigenous Territory as well as the TIPNIS (Isiboro-Secure Indigenous Territory and National Park), in a remote and pristine area of the Bolivian Amazon. The landscape is unique. The rivers fished are the headwaters of some tributaries of the Amazon River running downstream through the mountains and across the rainforest.
This raw and natural environment is a fly-fishers playground and one that you are unlikely to forget for a very long time. A must visit location and we are confident you will return for more.
