Fly Fishing Articles by
Armando Giraldo

I was born in Bogotá, Colombia pretty far away from any fishable waters. But at the age of six I had the fortune of taking my vacations at my grandmother’s house. There sugar cane fields filled with lakes and rivers allowed me to baitfish for several species. At the age of 14 I learned how to fly fish and tie flies. Ever since, it’s been all about fly fishing for each and every species of fish I can find. Jungle fly fishing became my absolute obsession. The Orinoco River and Amazon River basin species of fish are big, wild and colorful. Plus the scenery, sounds and smells are nourishing for the soul.
