Farlows, one of the world’s oldest fishing tackle sellers, has now branched out into travel, offering angling enthusiasts trips to some of the world’s most stunning and remote locations. It has teamed up with Untamed Angling, which runs Tsimane, a series of lodges in the forests and mountains of Bolivia, to offer a week fishing the Amazonian golden dorado. Despite the isolation of the location, the lodges offer all creature comforts, with local and international cuisine, plus broadband internet. Untamed Angling works closely with the region’s indigenous Chimane people, who still hunt fish and wild boar with bow and arrow, employing boatmen from the tribe to act as guides and share their ancestral knowledge with guests. One week at the Pluma lodge costs $7,600, with a five per cent surcharge to fund social projects, infrastructure development, transportation and medical and education projects for the local communities.
