I’ve started getting the fever now that trout season is upon us once again here in Argentina. Browsing through some blogs, fishing forums and other sites, I’ve accumulated a few pictures from the last 10 days to share. Enjoy.

End of April 2009

Neuquen, Patagonia Argentina.

We are now approaching the end of the fishing season in many of the provinces in Argentina. Depending on the province, the season will be over by the end of April or May. Opening season and “Cierre de Temporada” are the most exciting times for planning a fishing trip with friends or family in Argentina. The fishing can be very difficult since the weather is in transition, but the quality and quantity of the fish can make the effort worth while.

Alfredo Romero is heading out to San Martin de Los Andes to close out the season, and has promised me a story and pictures. I’m looking forward to those pictures as much as I am envious of Alfredo. You see, he’s not only a good fly fisherman, he’s also a very good photographer. So get ready to see some great shots in the upcoming story from Alfredo.

Pontoon float

I did quite a bit of research and found that there were many sellers out there selling the same products, so I guess you’d have to say that they were actually re-sellers. What was surprising was that the existence of a “middle man” didn’t necessarily mean an inflated price. The prices were all over the place for basically the same items.

I was eventually able to procure the object of my desire, and did so from a reseller (CoverBonanza.com) and not directly from Classic Accessories. I paid about $329 dollars for my sage/grey pontoon float and another $68 dollars for shipping to my father’s place in New York. Since I live in Argentina, I had to include it with my checked baggage at the airport. I’d called ahead and was told I’d have to pay $100 for oversize baggage. Getting through customs in Argentina turned out to be easier than I thought. I guess they were tired of hassling passengers that day. Anyway, since I’m not an Argentine citizen I wouldn’t be subject to tax, but that doesn’t always stop them from giving you a hard time on the off chance that you might palm them a $20 peso note… Continue reading

Watch out Fly Gal!

Watch out Fly Gal!

We’re getting ready for fishing season to open here in Patagonia, and since we’ve got ants in our pants we took advantage of nice spring weather to practice our fly casting technique.
