30 Apr Testimonial / Hasse Kurtovic (Sweden -2013):
After a long journey from Sweden to Argentina we got a two days rest in Buenos Aires. After that it was time for Calafate and the place were we would be picked up by our guide to continue our journey towards Jurassic Lake. An eight hour ride in a Jeep, what felt like twenty hours, took us to what we had been longing for… Jurassic Lake – What a place!
Exhausted but tremendously expectant we grabbed our fishing rod and ran down to the lake, put the fly in the water and caught a fish on the first throw! The long ride to get here was totally worth it!
The fishing in Jurassic is totally unique and I don’t think there is any were in the world were you can catch the amount of fish we caught during those two days. We lost count!!
Our guides Pollo, Julian and Sebastian were always at hand to take a picture, give tips and of course to cook the amazing food!!
After two intensive days we headed towards Rio Gallegos were we met Diego and his great staff. The evening started out with a very good information meeting and the best pizza ever.
Tired and satisfied we went to bed on Diego’s advice to get a good nights sleep because we will need all the energy we have on this type of fishing..
After the first day I understood Diego’s advice on the sleeping part… The famous Patagonian wind and the technical fishing was really demanding but unbelievable!! Where in the world can you stand there with your fishing rod and se wild foxes, eagles and horses moving among you??
Diego, Pollo and all the staff here have been equally amazing as the fishing and it will be a sad moment when we leave this place.. but as a known song Don’t cry for me Argentina – I WILL be back!!
