Bolivia, Tsimane


Lodge
Tsimane is located within a National Park and Indigenous Territory, where the Amazon jungle meets the Andes mountain chain. The landscape is incredible and its rivers are streams of clear water running through the jungle and the mountain, with wading-and-sight casting-friendly banks. The jungle remains in an absolute virgin state and it is probably one of the most voluptuous natural expressions in the world. Millions of butterflies of impossible colors flitter in the warm breeze, the rumor of hundreds of hidden birds and animals resounds from the depths of the jungle.
The rivers are inhabited by two different dorado species and other fish from the Amazon basin, such as the pirapitinga or Amazon pacú and the yatorana (pound by pound, one of the strongest fresh-water species)
Tsimane blends, like no other destination on Earth, the best aspects of fly fishing: sight casting, freestone wading, light tackle, floating lines; majestic sceneries, mountain rivers with clear, virgin waters; and four extremely sportive species reaching very significant sizes. The combination of such characteristics results in an overwhelming experience. And this is where we offer our most ambitious operation.
Every week, groups of only 4 anglers – staying in full-comfort luxurious tent lodges which offer the best international cuisine – set off every morning in boats specially developed for this environment, led by an expert dorado fly-fishing guide and a native assistant. In Tsimane, fresh water fishing reaches its pinnacle. It is a new challenge introducing the wildest version of dorado, undoubtedly the most powerful and beautiful fish which can faced with a fly rod. We have a long term exclusivity contract that guarantee the truly remarkable experience, protecting the place from other operations. Also we are supporting the National Park conservation, the local Indian communities and developing a biological research study of all species on the area.
About the accommodations this is a Luxury Camp. The Guests Rooms are luxury tents imported from South Africa, just like the ones used in the African Safaris. Each has full of space for two guests and a private bathroom with hot water and Electric light. Satellite telephone and internet available at the lodge.

Fishing
Fishing is done 90% going upstream with the canoes, stopping before the fishing spots (runs and tails of pools), fish walking those spots then jumping back to the boats again to the next run. Usually they are quite close (50 to 150 yards) so sometimes its not even worth to go in the boat. The wading is quite friendly but walking overall is considerable. 6 to 9 weight rods, with good quality and strong drag reels, floating lines and intermediate tip lines.
