Rod & Gun Resources and River Plate Outfitters are pleased to present one of the world's most amazing fishing and bird hunting opportunities in Argentina's Entre Rios Province.
Your hosts, River Plate's Luis Brown and Enrique Young, are well known for their fantastic duck, dove and perdiz hunting programs operated in Argentina's winter. Now they introduce South America's most extraordinary fishing experience, which can be combined with high-volume dove shooting. Both activities are accessed from the same lodging. Many well-traveled clients say this is the world’s most outstanding combination trip.
South American golden dorado are magnificent iridescent golden fish that strike viciously, leap maniacally, burn off line and destroy tackle and lures. Most dorado run from five to ten pounds, sometimes as large as twenty pounds. In the fabled, highly-restricted "La Zona/Salto Grande" area on the Uruguay River, the dorado routinely go 20-30-40, even 50 pounds!
The dove shooting here matches the amazing fishing. Guests can expect to shoot 15--30 boxes of shells each afternoon in a variety of shooting platforms. This is a spectacular sporting opportunity for amazing fishing in the morning and great gunning in the afternoon.
Along with the splendid hunting and fishing, guests will enjoy luxurious accommodations, the finest in cuisine and Argentine wines, and the caring and congenial service for which River Plate is well known.
