EQUIPMENT LIST

Due a number of similarities like fast powerful strikes and aggressive attitudes, you can set up basically the same type of equipment for both Dorado and Peacock Bass.

Fly Fishing: Preferred fast action rods, 7 to 9 weight, 9 feet long, 3 or 4 pieces for safer airline travel. Reels with a strong smooth drag and 100 yards of 20 lb. backing. Weight forward floating (WFF) lines for warm water and intermediate fast sinking lines. Leaders from 7 to 9 feet terminating on 12-18" of 20lb steel wire (for peacock bass steel wire is not much used).  On flies, saltwater streamers generally work best, varying mainly on black, white, purple, yellow, red, orange, green and bright color patterns. Deceivers, poppers and divers ranging in size from 1/0 to 4/0 in the same colors are all frequently used.

Spinning/Baitcasting: Medium/heavy action rods with 6 to 7 feet long, 3 or 4 pieces for safer airline travel. Fast retrieve reels, with a smooth drag and 100 yards capacity at least. Braided line of 65-80 pound test and 14-20 pound for monofilament. Rigid plastic lures in a variety of light and dark color patterns, from to 4 to 10 inches long.

Fishing Accessories: Pliers, hook sharpener, polarized sunglasses, weight scale, clippers.

Clothing: Light long-sleeved shirts and trousers, t-shirts, shorts, swim suits, comfortable walking shoes, sandals, one set of warmer clothes, a hat, light rain jacket;

Remember when packing

Most types of transportation have a luggage limit weight per person. Check out details about it according to your trip and itineraries.  As lighter you pack more enjoyable your trip gets, and helps to avoid problems with luggage’s excess of weight. In any case, traveling light is always better.
