FISHING GEAR

Even if the average catch is of approximately 2 pounds, you could be taken by surprise by a bigger fish; therefore we recommend that you bring a robust fishing rod and reel filled with (new) 10 pounds test monofilament. For fly fishing we recommend a 7 1/2 to 8 feet rod with floating silk or sinking tip with a maximum 10 pounds test monofilament.

Suggested lures

Light tackle

- Krocodile #2 (mixed)
- Little Cleo 1/3 oz (mixed)
