This week down at Secure lodge saw a new group of faces who were all excited to get on the water for their first ever jungle fishing experience!
Secure Lodge – 04/09/2021
Week number 14 brought four American guests to Sécure, including a couple undertaking their very first jungle dorado experience and two anglers — Pepe and Sandy — who are very experienced dorado fishermen. Both Pepe and Sandy have fished with Untamed several times before in Brazil and Bolivia, and are very experienced at playing dorado on the fly. We experienced very irregular weather conditions, with changing temperatures and a mix of both rainy and sunny days.
Despite the mixed weather, everyone got into awesome fish, with a good number of large fish (several over 20 lbs.) lost in fast pockets and runs far up the river, or in deep holes under logs and other structure on the lower sections. The moody weather conditions meant that the dark profiles of pacú were difficult to spot, but some did take our flies and were, as they often are, 100% effective in winning the battle.Our largest fish of the week was an 18-lb. dorado, caught on the home pool by Daniel.
