Sounds like an incredible adventure! My dream fishing trip had always been Alaska. But after seeing the size of these fish, I might have to start saving for a trip to the jungle.

I now feel like I can say I've been to Bolivia...well, in spirit at least. Amazing photos and terrific writing brought me right there on the river, gasping at the sight of those gorgeous golden fish.

Man, if you're not snappin' rods, you arent 'fishing hard enough, Alex! Make those companies live up their promises/guarantees, you bought it... Well, yeah, it does kinda stink when you break your favorite rod, no matter how you slice it.

Thanks for the nice comments above, I appreciate them.

This is one of the coolest adventure fishing articles that i have read. Man, I'd love to get back in there and hit some of these dorado.
Looking at the head structure, fin placement, etc., they look a lot like big trout.
