For week #9 at Las Buitreras we had Christer Sjoberg hosting this group of fisherman, with some of them repeating the trip to our lodge, and some for the first time.

Thou the low water conditions continued, fresh fish was still coming into the system and for them the strategy had to be the same. The long leaders (up to 15’), thin tippets and small flies were a must!

As a usual for what’s been of this summer, the changing conditions made anglers have to adapt to different weather and winds every session.

Taking both a double handed rod and a single handed one has been the way to have the right tool for every place as each pool can look totally different with the different weather. Also the technique has to be changed to succeed. The instruction and help from our experienced guides has been truly significant.

For Simon and Joe, it was even an even more special time, as they were spending their honeymoon with us and Las Buitreras. Enjoying our facilities and service have gone beyond the fishing for an unforgettable experience.

Cheers to Simon and Joe, and thanks for sharing this time with all of us at the lodge, and for the rest of the group for a fantastic week!
