Enjoy the incomparable experience of fly fishing Dorado, piranha
and tararira, surrounded by a unique landscape. Located very close
to Buenos Aires (a 90-minute drive), San Pedro consists of a delta
where hundreds of streams and channels get together, giving home
to these species, so desired by fishermen. An easy way to enjoy
wilderness, having the chance to see a lot of birds, turtles, capybara
and sometimes alligators.
The freshwater Dorado is considered to be the single most challenging
native freshwater game fish of South America. It is a radiant, golden-hued,
salmon-like fish with an extremely powerful jaw and razor-sharp
teeth. Unlike the salmon, however, the Dorado does not succumb after
spawning and never swims to the ocean. The Dorado is an exceptionally
strong swimmer and normally ranges (in this area) in size from 5
to 10 pounds, although the world record is 70 pounds.
An ideal program for businessmen or visitors staying at Buenos Aires
and for all those seeking new adventures and destinations.
