A bucketlist experience 

A unique fishing trip in untamed clear waters featuring gourmet food, personalized service by family owners, in a cozy and welcoming lodge with rustic-elegant interiors.

Come face to face with the Tiger of the River, surrounded by Golden waves as you set the hook, a Golden Dorado with a scowl on his face angry as hell, will suddenly jump three feet in the air showing his teeth before diving back into the river, busting your reel with his aggression.

Take the challenge. What are you waiting for?

 

 

The Lodge

Colonial-Estancia style fishing lodge

 

Guests are welcomed into a private and friendly atmosphere at our colonial-estancia style lodge that lays on the pristine Upper Parana River, dense with mature, regional trees.

The Golden Fly Fishing Lodge is located in Corrientes on the best clear water section of the upper Paraná River, home to record size Golden Dorados.

The building offers 4 cozy and unique style rooms, with private bath & air-conditioner, a salon decorated with wood furniture and a fireplace creating a friendly atmosphere where fishing stories come to life. Our lodge provides on-site Fly Shop and Fly-tying table, dining room and outdoor barbecue facing the garden where Howler Monkeys and Tucans enjoy eating flowers and fruits from mature trees.

As a true Italian-Argentinean family, we’re devoted to good cuisine. We offer 4-course meals featuring international and regional specialties, such as our famed beef and traditional Asado (BBQ), prepared by a Personal Chef for each group of anglers, paired with fine Argentine wines from the renowned Mendoza region. Unlimited WiFi and Satelital TV are available.

 

 

The Parana Grand Slam

Enjoy the best fishing spots of the High Parana river.

 

Challenge the three most coveted and voracious species of Argentina and achieve the freshwater Grand Slam: Golden Dorado, Pirá Pytá and Pacú. You can also expect to catch several other sporty species.

 

The Tiger of the River

Golden Dorado

This is the most exciting freshwater species in South America. It has Tarpon-like tendencies and is known for its aggressive strikes, finger-burning runs, acrobatic fights, and overall beauty.

 

The Elusive Species

PACÚ

This treasured species is as difficult to find and catch as the saltwater Permit. Found only from December to April, it’s a highly coveted fish by serious anglers who seek to complete the Golden Fly Fishing Grand Slam.

 

The River Salmon

PIRÁ PYTÁ

With Bonefish-like speed, this freshwater fish is known for its line-ripping runs and fierce fighting. It is undoubtedly one of the most exquisite fishing experiences that our region offers and requires the your utmost focus and precision casting dry flies.

 

 

 

 

100% catch & release

This is one of the founding principles of our company and we seek to transmit it to our clients.
