Gringos in Bolivia ~ Backcountry

Happy New Year!

We only have this one life and looking at the last years, if financially possible I would encourage all of you and myself to dedicate at least one fishing trip to some place new. It doesn't have to be exotic or even a far off destination. But exploring new water requires you to experience everything new again. Figuring out where the fish are, how the water runs, new vistas, new fish, and it's hard work make no doubt.

Many of us live in a reasonable drive distance to great fishing so why pass on convenience and what you know to be productive and good angling for something questionable? If nothing else it will provide appreciation and experience. It might give you new perspectives or meet new people and see new places. It's worth at least once a year if not more often

Here's to what I hope is a safe and fun year for us all (including our fish)

Great video. Despite appearances Golden D.s are not a salmonoid relative. Most large sport fish out of South and Central America will eat flies as big as a bird especially some of the peacock bass but it sure looks like a helluva trip if you like to explore and rough it some

Side note:

Dr.Bob we should plan a trip to explore some new waters and do some car/tent camping with or without the kids this summer. I'm thinking Maine if you can get away for a few days (2/3) call me

I agree. Looks like a good time but wouldn’t be my first choice

All that said if you look closely I bet it was unforgettable
