Sorry for the delayed posts, but you can’t believe where I’ve been the past few days. I have been in the wildest country on the planet, and experienced true Patagonia! I’ve been eating lamb with the locals, drinking yerba matte, and watched a 60-year old woman spin her own clothes from lambswool!
The country is as rugged as it is beautiful – every corner exposes something different as the ecosystems are extremely diverse – from dry and arid rocky mountains to lush rain forest, all within 30 miles of each other.
Now to the fishing – it is incredible!! I’ve fished many lakes and rivers over the past two days, and have caught the largest brown trout of my life many times over, with the culmination being a 30-inch, 12 – 15lb monster that took me to my backing twice, and jumped countless times. I’ve caught more 18 – 25 inch browns than I can count.
Needless to say, the fishing has been everything I imagined and more!
I’m off today for a 4-hour drive into the Cines Valley for a 4-day adventure in the wild. I’ll try to post again when I get there!
