FAQ

Q?

. How do I get there?

A.

Our Exploratory and Fishing Trips usually begins in Bogotá, Colombia, where our visitors may go first. We will support you on flight and hotel reservations there. On time to start going to our fishing destination, we will pick you up so since that time we will take care of your trip.

Q?

. What is the best time to go?

A.

The fishing season in the Orinoco basin starts in December and ends in mid-April, coinciding with the dry season in the region. In the rainy season all the tributaries of the Orinoco get water levels up to 14.5 meters above the lowest level (March) and overflow in the gallery forest and in the plains that surrounds them. At that time baitfish and predators are moving away from the river where found refuge and places to ambush, which makes it very difficult fishing for Peacock Bass in rainy season.

In Bahia Solano there are fishing all year round but we recommend going to the peaks of the season, i.e. in April and May, or in September and October, when most of the species are present and active on the Colombian Pacific.

Q?

. Is it safe to go fishing there?

A.

In Fly Fishing Colombia we choose our fishing destinations in places that offer security to our guests. Our close and permanent relationship with the guides and local communities allows us to know by first hand how is the overall security in each fishing destination. On the other hand our guides are widely experienced in navigation on these rivers and they have as their main priority to take care of our visitors.

Q?

. In case of an emergency, can I be contacted being there?

A.

Usually we will have a satellite phone to be used at evening.  Your family can send text messages free of charge from Internet to this phone in case of an emergency.

Q?

. Do I need a Visa to go there?

A.

United States or European citizens don’t need a Visa to ge into Colombia, in fact almost no foreign visitors require Visa.

Q?

. Your trips are good enough for non-fishermen?

A.

Due to the exuberance of nature, landscapes and fauna to be seen in those rivers, any non-fisherman visitor who wants to take photos and enjoy nature will be happy. We recommend our non-fishermen visitors to coordinate with enough time their activities with us to make exploratory tours and not have to remain in the camp that can be boring.
