Another epic week on the Rio Grande where all six clients catch fish over 20lbs
By Charlie White
We understood from the guides and from Alejandro Menendez Behety that it was one of the best weeks La Villa has ever had; it was certainly the best that we have had...
The six of us caught 104 fish in total, with 48 of those fish over 15 pounds, and 20 of the 48 over 20 pounds! Keith Howman had 2 fish over 20 pounds, my husband Mel Holzman had 3 over 20 pounds of which the largest were 24 and 25 pounds, Jean Howman had 5 fish over 20 pounds of which the largest were 26 and 27 pounds, and I was thrilled to have 4 fish over 20 pounds of which the largest was 29 pounds! Both of the other fisherman with us, Jack Meredith and William Hughes, had fish over 20 pounds as well.
