Fun in the Jungle: Bolivian Dorado

Almost every time Field & Stream‘s Kirk Deeter does a fly fishing expedition somewhere, I find myself looking at the post-trip images and thinking two things: Man, I wish I had been there; and, Man, I’m glad I didn’t have to do that. This time, though, I didn’t have the second thought. Despite the twelve-hour bus rides and the flights through “cocaine country,” the fishing for 20-plus-pound Dorado in Bolivia looks like a cure for any domestic malaise.
“What do dorado eat? Big flies. Dark flies (and spoons.) With eyes. Sometimes a fish would grab a fly and I’d miss the hookset, yet the eyes of my fly would be torn away. Dorado aim for the head.”
