    Bring plenty of flies!

    With the mothership being mobile no matter when you show up to fish you can expect the boat to be parked close to good fishing!

    The Argentina fishing trip was fantastic! First time fishing for Golden Dorado and I will definitely go again. Staying on the boat was very cool, great staff, great food and great guides.

  3. Brett Callaway

    If you like throwing big flies at aggressive fish, this is as good as it gets. Three of the four days we fished in excess of 10 hours with action from the beginning of the day until the end. They pack a nice lunch for the days on the River – the food is all delicious and plentiful. One of the days we decided on a half day of fishing and had lunch at the mothership, which was an incredible full-service spread that you would find in a high-end restaurant.
