Tierra del Fuego 2014 season report
By Hannah Treliving
It has been quite a season on the phenomenal Rio Grande in Argentina...
As the catch reports demonstrate, it proved yet more fruitful than 2013 for guests at Estancia Maria Behety and La Villa Maria Behety:
- Total number of fish landed was 3,558 (529 more than 2013 season) to 180 rods
- Average weight of fish was 9.69lbs
- 541 of the fish landed were over 15lbs and 93 tipped the scales at over 20lbs
- Average weekly catch was 19.72 fish per rod – 3.3 fish per rod per day
- Largest sea trout landed was a mammoth 27.5lbs
Our fishing co-ordinator Hannah Treliving visited both lodges at the beginning of the season for the first time and was utterly stunned by the landscape of Tierra Del Fuego and the impressive fishing programme: ‘As a novice fisher it was encouraging to visit the Rio Grande and catch the fish that I did, which is testament to the skill, knowledge and patience of the guides and the superb fishing on offer here. I was awestruck by Argentina as it really is a sportsman’s haven so no wonder so many of our clients return year after year’.
We operate a strict right of return policy for rods and we will know any available space by the end of April. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in fishing the Rio Grande next season and we will register your interest and put you to the top of the list should any space become available.
Do think about adding on a short trip before or after Tierra Del Fuego as Argentina and Chile have a huge amount to offer with almost every conceivable interest catered for. We are fortunate enough to know the area well and can advise on anything from dove shooting , dorado fishing, riding with the gauchos, a wine tour of Mendoza or even taking a cruise to the South to see penguins and humpback whales.
Please contact Charlie White or Hannah Treliving to discuss these endless opportunities and the fantastic fishing that Tierra Del Fuego provides on 01488 689 701 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
