Frank Yerich - Fishing AdventuresThis website is mostly a collection of fishing photos taken on vacations over the past few years. I truly consider myself fortunate to have seen so many beautiful places and fished with such great people.
I like so many people truly enjoy fishing. It is a sport that rewards in many ways. I enjoy all types of fishing and truly enjoy learning new ways to catch fish. For the most part I practice “catch and release”
After good health other great things in life are Friends, Fishing and Travel. I am truly thankful for the good friends I have fished with over the years.
I have enjoyed many wonderful and exotic fishing adventures with true fishing buddies over these many years. I am currently working on adding recent trips to Africa and the Indian Ocean. So please check back soon.

It was a very special incredibly clear day. The pilot landed the plane on a glacier and we all got out and played in the snow. What a treat!
La Zona – “The Zone” – Golden DoradoLa Zona is “The home of the Monsters” It is the prime feeding grounds for the largest Golden Dorado on earth. As a newly opened and very exclusive fishery special permits have been granted to a single fishing operation allowing them to bring in up to 4 anglers, on two small boats, into this once restricted area.
La Zona means “The Zone” It is a fisherman’s ultimate dream destination. It is located just below a dam on the Uruguay River that separates Uruguay and Argentina. At first glance, looking down from the plane, it looked way too small an area to fish for 4 full days. Boy was I ever wrong. This unique stretch of water holds the largest population of the biggest and meanest Golden Dorado man has ever seen. For months ahead of time George Large and I anticipated and prepared for our battle with these brutes. On the first day of fishing I boated my largest Dorado that weighed 42 lbs…
