Recommended Equipment

Regarding the equipment, it is recommended to use a fly fishing rod ranging from 6 to 8 weights. This will provide the necessary power to cast medium-sized poppers and control the Machaca during the fight.
As for the fly line, a weight-forward floating line is ideal for easily and accurately casting the poppers.
In terms of flies, it is suggested to have a varied selection that mimics the natural food of the Machaca. Vibrant-colored poppers such as green, yellow, orange, and red are excellent choices as they imitate fruit-bearing and flowering trees that attract these fish.
