GENERAL INFORMATION
Pirá is a high-quality lodge for Dorado flyfishing. Located in Corrientes, in the Northeast of Argentina, Pirá offers tropical weather throughout the 8 months of the fishing season. The season starts in October and finishes in April.

Pirá cannot be compared to other lodges that fish Dorado due to its remarkable facilities, high-qualified staff and strategic location on the coast of the Iberá Marshlands. These marshlands cover an area of over 1 million hectares and offer the chance of fishing Dorado in pristine waters. These ideal conditions allow to cast on sight and catch the Dorado with floating lines and surface flies, a technique that produces spectacular hookups.

The Ibera Marshlands are worldly famous for the beauty of the sights and ecosystem biodiversity. They are home to over 350 species of birds, 85 species of mammals, and 70 reptiles. The largest populations of the endangered marshland deer, alligators and American caimans also have them as their habitat.

The Dorado (Salminus Maxillosus) is called the "Tiger of the River" in Argentina and is regarded as one of the most sporting fish of South America. It is a great swimmer and the average size ranges from 5 to 12 pounds, even though the world record is over 70 pounds.

FISHING PROGRAM
All the fishermen will be accompanied by a professional guide and will float the marshlands looking for Dorados, on modern Skiff Boats, specially designed for flyfishing in this kind of habitat. The boats are fully-equipped with four-stroke engines, silent and ecologic. The guests at the lodge will find countless activities. For the most demanding fishermen, day starts at dawn and finishes at sunset. However, visitors like the idea of setting off early in the morning and coming back at noon, to enjoy some refreshments, lunch, the swimming-pool and a good nap. In the afternoon, the fishermen go back to the water. This timetable helps them avoid the heat of midday, and allows them to enjoy a meal prepared by the chef, apart from spending some time with the guests that do not go fishing.

SEASONS
October - April

ACCOMMODATIONS
