This September I was fortunate enough to be invited by my friend Daniel Bellinson of Fly Fishing Caribe to join a group of anglers at two of Untamed Angling’s camps on the Secure River in Bolivia. This unforgettable jungle fishing experience blew my mind! Special thanks to Florian Kaiser and Luciano our guide from the Aqua Negra camp for their photos (they took the good ones).
I got a chance to use a bunch of cool new gear on this trip.
Highlights included the new SAGE X 9ft 9wt and Winston 9ft 9wt B3 Plus rods that were phenomenal at casting the huge flies required to push water and move fish. Double Barreled Surface Seducer Poppers are fantastic to fish and easy to work with in terms of creating a “castable” large popper. Ahrex Predator Stinger Hooks held up to the vicious Golden Dorado perfectly. Greg Senyo’s Barred Predator wrap made creating huge streamers a piece of cake.
