Every once in a while, I'll stumble across a fishing video that makes my heart stop, send goosebumps down my spine, or send me off frantically searching flights to some remote destination. "TSIMANE 3X" by the folks at Venturing Angler accomplished all three in less than 5 minutes.
Golden dorado have skyrocketed up more bucket lists in the last decade than just about any other fish out there, and it's not hard to see why. Golden dorado live in clear, swift flowing waters, and can often be found hiding out in oxygenated pools created by ripples and rocks ... sound like anything else you've probably targeted on the fly? Golden's similarities to trout don't end there, fly fishing for golden dorado requires large and frequent mends, accurate roll casts, and meaty streamers. Throw in the fact that they fight, pull, and jump like no other freshwater fish out there and you can see why trout anglers are flocking to South America to try their hand at panning for gold.
