The Las Buitreras section of this stunning river is our own little chrome treasure and once it grab holds of you it never lets go. The fishing is exciting and varied with pools ranging from deep stony runs to cut banks and streamy shingle flats. Relatively shallow, the river makes for easy wading, obviating the need for fast sinking lines and creating an exciting and challenging fishing environment. Fishing is mainly done using single hand rods or light double hand rods rigged with floating or slow intermediate lines. Long casting is not the focus but rather to control the fly and always be ready. The takes are often violent and these fish really puts on a show once they are hooked! It is this variety in combination with the visually inspiring mountainous outcrops, that makes this part of the Rio Gallegos quite simply one of the most spectacular stretches of fly fishing water in Patagonia. Sometimes explosive, always challenging, fishing for sea trout requires a level of skill, watercraft and understanding that can frustrate the average salmon angler. However, armed with the correct knowledge to unlock these secrets the fishing on the Rio Gallegos can be immensely rewarding and highly addictive.
