“Dorado are either the Argentineans best kept secret or else travelling anglers, hell bent on pursuing the admittedly excellent Sea Trout fishing, simply miss out on the opportunity.” In fairness neither of those statements are quite true. Argentineans absolutely love their Dorado fishing and happily boast about it. On the other side, ‘Western’ anglers do come and fish for Dorado although they are usually given second priority. From my perspective I have definitely fallen into the latter category. In 2009 I resolved to make amends with a visit to Pira Lodge in the Argentine district of Corrientes. What a revelation it was!

The contrast between the barren terrain of Tierra del Fuego in the very South of Argentina and the Iberian marshland in the North East is staggering. Quite apart from the landscape, visitors require a very different wardrobe. For starters waders, woolly hats and fleeces are exchanged for bare feet, shorts, linen shirts and sun tan lotion. It has all the outward vestiges of a saltwater fishing operation; climate, skiffs, guides on poling platforms but that is pretty much where the similarity ends. The assault on your senses starts the moment your guide guns the engines on your skiff and you disappear into the marshland.
