The trip was great. The lodge, the guide, the food, the staff – all wonderful. The fishing was not as great as we hoped although good. Very tough conditions, more physical, and not as many fish as we or the other guests expected. The fish are as big as advertised however.
We caught so many 10-12lbs in fact that we stopped taking pictures after a day or so. We had tons of doubles and even a few triples. We had a handful of 30 fish days and one day where we caught 40 if we caught one. There isn’t anywhere on the planet that fishes like Strobel Lake.
Golden Dorado had been on my list to catch on a fly rod for many years due to their aggressive nature, one of a kind gold appearance, and fly shredding teeth.
The Argentina fishing trip was fantastic! First time fishing for Golden Dorado and I will definitely go again. Staying on the boat was very cool, great staff, great food and great guides.
This is hardcore streamer fishing. If you like throwing big flies at aggressive fish, this is as good as it gets.
The experience of sight fishing the unbelievable numbers of huge rainbows is beyond compare. I’ll be back!
Fly fishing Argentina is truly spectacular, and we’ve been hard at work finding the most exceptional fishing lodges in this little slice of fly fishing heaven. We understand how fishing conditions change throughout the season and we give you advice based on peak fishing times.
I was treated like a king this entire trip and I am excited to come back with a group and show them what fishing these rivers is all about!
The Rio Blanco and the valley looked and felt more beautiful than I remembered. Fishing in Chile, Patagonia is incredible and I can’t wait to fish it.
