Colombia Afloat, Colombia hosted by Kevin Howell
February 10 – 19, 2023
Colombia Afloat is a mobile floating fishing camp specializing in targeting large peacock bass on the remote Tomo River in eastern Colombia. The Tomo is an exceptional river with good numbers of large fish that are targeted by both fly and conventional anglers.
With three species of peacock bass, the largest of which tickle the 20-pound mark, and additional species, this is an exotic jungle adventure well suited to anglers of all skill levels. Moreover, this is a well-rounded travel adventure that begins with an enriching overnight in the appealing city of Medellin followed by a flight, four wheeling and ultimately a boat ride into camp.
Accommodations are simple, yet comfortable, floating cabins. Anglers sleep two per cabin, each equipped with a flush toilet, cool water shower, and fans over each bed. Hearty, simple meals are served by a very friendly local staff in an outdoor dining tent.
Anglers have lunch either on the river, where they are met by a camp hand who brings them a warm lunch, or back in their cabins if they are fishing close to camp. The fishing days are generous, and guests should expect many encounters with peacock bass across a broad range of sizes.
