BOLIVIA EXPEDITION – 8 DAYS/6.5 FISHING
Have you ever dreamed of joining a MOTIV FISHING adventure? Well your opportunity has finally arrived! Fall 2017, for the first time ever, we are looking for individuals to join our fly fishing exploratories deep within Bolivia’s Yungas Region to pioneer new waters and document the most explosive Golden Dorado fish fights ever captured on camera. The never-ending pursuit to explore and discover new fisheries around the world is the juice that keeps our drive alive at MOTIV FISHING. Join us as we venture into one of the most isolated reaches of the Bolivian Jungle to sight fish 20lb+ Golden Dorado on the fly in the headwaters of crystal clear rivers that have never seen the likes of another fisherman. This fishing adventure is unlike any other that has been offered for these magnificent fish.
Discovering a new world-class fishery is a rarity in this day and age. Having the opportunity to join the discovery team that finds that new world-class fishery is even a greater rarity. That being said, it’s very important that we’re up front with the details outlining this adventure. If you’re after the traditional luxury fly fishing lodge experience, then you should stop reading further into this opportunity. This trip is definitely not for everyone. In order to be a candidate for this exploratory expedition, you need to be physically and mentally prepared for the host of uncertainties that come with stepping into the unknown. This is a full-fledge fly fishing expedition into the upper reaches of one of the most isolated rivers in all of Bolivia. 95% of this river is uncharted water. What we do know is that there’s an extremely high probability this September that a new world-class fishery will be pioneered in Bolivia as a result of this trip.
JOURNEY TO THE HEADWATERS
Accessing the upper reaches of this remote river system won’t be easy and will require us to network with the indigenous Tsimane communities of the area to gather the necessary manpower, boats and resources in order to do so. Everyday the expedition will push further and further upriver toward the headwaters. Wooden dugout canoes will be used to transport our equipment and supplies upriver to a new basecamp location each day. The jungle has a lot of tricky ground and there are always things to look out for in this wild landscape. A lot of the fishing will require anglers to hike and wade upriver through adverse geography and climate conditions. There will be plenty of challenges on this adventure, but that’s always a given when you’re conducting an exploratory trip into new waters. What we can tell you is that the further the expedition moves upriver, the more insane the fishing will become. This fishing trip won’t be for everyone, but the lucky few that do come along on this expedition will experience the fishing adventure of a lifetime.
