Tierra Del Fuego Client Trip Update

Tierra Del Fuego Client Trip Update

Thanks to long term client and friend of Roxtons Phil D for a quick trip update from Tierra Del Fuego.

"The 30c heat of last week had vanished and we were left with ‘normal’ conditions. Standard 25mph winds but we had two days where it blew at up to 75mph which made for interesting casting. The week was very good however, six anglers landed 116 fish and 32 were book fish. There were eight fish of 20lbs up to 24lbs. I equalled my best fish of 24lbs and two others each caught a 24lb fish. 

The size of the fish is better than ever and the quality superb. The river is at it lowest for many a year and this meant that fish were holed up in deep pools and therefore nymphing techniques came to the fore. At this time of the year fish were in all sections and the up-river zones had good numbers of fish. Not so many on top on Scandi/Sunray combination, so T-14 between 5 and 12 feet was standard, with EMB being a good fly. Sadly, no NBSC prize this year but I did manage to catch in ten out of the twelve sessions, so the pressure came off after the usually ‘banker’ Comoran pool performed poorly for all."
