A great week on the Rio Grande, the river levels are perfect for the time of year. However on Friday the river went up and coloured a little which is handy for the coming weeks. 71 fish were landed, 17 fish over 15 pounds, 2 over 20, Average weight 9.9 lbs. Floating lines and slow sinking were the best, green machine was the best fly in the week. There were so many offers on the surface, with green machine, striping short and slow to keep the fly in the surface.
St Francois Atoll was on top form over the past week. An event occurred that only happens once every few years. Massive schools of rabbitfish formed bait balls and moved into the lagoon which in turn made the GT’s go absolutely wild. The GT fishing was fantastic over the last week coupled with amazing bonefishing and even a few permit and triggerfish being caught in between. Not only was the flats fishing amazing but also the bluewater angling, with anglers landing some catches of a life time.
The sea trout season in Tierra del Fuego has just started and the Estancia Maria Behety lodge have opened the season with the addition of a smashing new lunch hut over looking the river. The season is just starting but the fishing has been good and water levels are ideal for the time of year. On the high cliff above the lower river the lunch hut provides a warm, cosy sheltered spot to enjoy a wood fired lunch with a magical view.

A new level of luxury in Jardine de la Reina
It has been an initiative of Avalon over the last decade to ensure the comfort of their guests and the luxury of the experiences in Jardines de la Reina by continually upgrading their yachts. In 2019, they released the Jardines Avalon III at 160 feet with the most updated amenities and highest level of comfort with 15 cabins and an incredible cruising ability. This vessel has set the standard for their newest project to be released in August of 2020, the NEW TORTUGA.
We are delighted to announce that the prime fishing season of the East Ranga river is now exclusively to be marketed by Roxtons.
The East Ranga Lodge and rods were purchased from Lax-a in summer 2019 by friends of both Roxtons and Lax-a. Subsequently a further agreement was made with the East Ranga river owners to ensure that all rods from 1 July – 3 September were secured (i.e. the entire prime fishing on this very productive river.)
Dorado fishing in the jungle? For years I have been hearing about the extraordinary fishing that was being reported from Bolivia but I could never get very excited about it.
Too hot, too humid, too far, too full of bugs and given the videos I had seen, I thought that the fishing might be a bit easy.
Not for the first time, as my children constantly point out, I could not have been more wrong.
