If you are looking for vast areas of wild unexplored marshlands, swamps and acrobatic fish, your next stop should be Pira Lodge. Located just outside the small town of Corrientes, Argentina and within the Ibera Marshlands, Pira Lodge is one of the most unique destinations we have visited. Noel Pollak is the manager and the country’s leading authority on this amazing region and the source for all things dorado.
Rooms are decorated in a way to compliment and pay homage to the unique marshland that surrounds this gem. All rooms have two queen beds and a private bath complete with a small sitting area. The dining room and den are a short jaunt from the rooms.
The lodge uses four new Hells Bays Skiffs to access the remote fishery. Days are spent sight casting to golden dorado and blind casting to cuts in the banks and deep troughs that dot the waterways. Intermediate and full sink lines are used with seven to nine weight rods. Flies are dark and heavy and produce large silhouettes. As mentioned previously, Noel and his staff are experienced and will ensure you learn as well as catch fish. Days are long here with a break for lunch and a much needed siesta, expect eight to ten hours of fishing daily. Flights to Corrientes originate out of Buenos Aires on LAN Airlines. For groups of four to six anglers we recommend a private charter that takes any layovers or stops on the LAN commercial flight out of the equation. From Corrientes the lodge will transfer anglers 3.5 hours to the remote operation.
