Isobel S with one of 9 fish she and her husband Ian, landed on just one session on the Rio Grande. A great session for sure but made slightly more epic when you are told that they were sharing a rod and that the combined weight of those 9 sea trout was 122lbs. Just an astonishing fishery.
After the Christmas festive season break and some great weather we were all pretty excited to see what the Astove fishery had in store for us. It couldn’t have started any better with Daryl E catching a gorgeous moustache trigger on his first cast of the trip and later followed up with a great yellow-margin.
What do you want from a fishing destination?
We are all different but if you want reliability, big fish, excellent guides, supremely comfortable lodges, a week of varied fishing techniques and fabulous food and drink then you really shouldn’t look any further than the Maria Behety fishing on the Rio Grande in Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina.
Another week has just ended, what a great group and the fishing was very good too. 120 fish landed with 25 fish over 15 pounds. 2 lovely fish over 20 pounds. Average weight 9 pounds. All in all a great week.
We enjoyed great fishing with floating lines, tubes flies and green machine proved to be the best.
Also intermediate lines with long leaders with an emb nymph worked well.
