The name of the village Oromomo — the access point to the Pluma and Itirisama Rivers in Bolivia — means "Devil's Gold." Apparently, the elders who named the village felt that riches of the region were somehow cursed. But for fly fishers "Devil's Gold" reflects brightly, referring to golden dorado, one of the wildest of freshwater fish. Castaway Films spent a week on location shooting deep in the Bolivian jungle at Untamed Angling's Tsimane Lodge to capture this seven minutes of video, which is some of the best there is on dorado fishing.

Grant Wiswell, the film's producer, says of the video: "We came for Dorado, PERIOD. Ever since I watched an old Larry Dahlberg video on the subject, I haven't been able to get these magnificent fish off my mind. As it turns out, the Tsimane experience completely trumped anything I had previously seen or heard about the Golden Dorado. Not only are these fish numerous and willing, the warm water is clear as can be, which makes for fantastic fishing. I'd estimate that we sight-casted to at least 80 percent of the fish we caught."
