Las Buitreras – Patagonia, Argentina
The incomparable Rio Gallegos meanders more than 360 km through desolate pampa wastelands before if finally merges into the raging atlantic ocean close to the strait of magellan. In it’s ineffable beauty a journey worth itself, it becomes the cynosure of dedicated fly anglers world wide as soon as the winter ice melts to expose the rivers so sought after searun brown trout. While their sheer size of up to 30 lbs and beyond leaves anglers and spectators alike awestruck, it’s their raging temper beyond compare that feeds the addiction of getting connected to these fish. Estancia Las Buitreras is home to the most prolific beats on the Rio Gallegos, consisting of over 40 kms of private water and more than 50 named pools!
For the 2018 season we added a whole new zone offering more than ten new, scouted and approved, prime pools to add to the already abundant amount of water!
