Pike angler banks 42lb golden dorado on holiday

This stunning 42lb golden dorado was the highlight of Mike Green’s recent trip to Argentina.

The keen all-rounder from Northamptonshire swapped pike fishing on his local waters for something a little more exotic as he enjoyed four days fly fishing action on a waterway located 300 miles from the county’s capital city, Buenos Aires.

More than 40 fish were landed by Mike and his boat partner during the holiday, with four over 30lb being netted before the best of the lot was landed.

“I can only describe it as the best fishing trip of my life,” said Mike.
