Esquel - Patagonia Argentina

If you know Patagonia and it's mountain weather you know fishing conditions may change from year to year.
So farr (season in Patagonia starts 1st of Nov), the season's been ultra-fast speaking on water levels, hatching and trout response to it terms.
End on November brought really sunny and warm days, so snow melt's been way too much, the river are now starting to look like they normally do mid January.
Fishing on the Rio Grande a.k.a Futaleufu (not the one in Tierra del Fuego!) and the beautifull Rivadavia (at Los Alerces National Park) we've found the trout still a bitt skinny and feeding on early hatching mayflies and midges. Even Dragonflies are really active so fishing huge big foam flies has been really productive. On the same day we've had the first Grand Slam of the season catching a Rainbow, Brook, Brown and Landlock Salmon on the same floating trip thru the Rivadavia, and all on dies! (I'd call it a master's Grand Slam, hehe)
see you around
If you are tired of multi-mega companys that organize fishing trips and vacations, finding unpassionate wasted guides that work only for salaries, email me, straight and personally. I will show the beauty and the magic of fly fishing in Patagonia.
