Flies for Las Buitreras
Ask any Argentinian sea trout guide what fly to use and they’ll surely tell you it doesn’t matter as long as it’s black with white rubberlegs. Perhaps not the most beautiful addition to your flybox, however, rubberlegs really work well in this river. If you’re more of a purist though and prefer to fish patterns without the rubberlegs, you’ll also find them functional. Anything from small nymphs, size 8-12, to streamers and classical salmon flies are frequently utilized by our guides and returning guests with great results.
Current water conditions is what determine what flies and size of flies we use. We recommend to bring various nymphs with rubber legs size 8-12, streamers size 6-10, plus some bigger sunray shadows and leeches for late evening fishing.
Our top six all season patterns
1: Yuk bug
2: Rubber leg conehead woolly bugger / yellow yummie (black,yellow, olive)
3: Copper John nymph / rubber leg nymphs (copper and black)
4: Miller’s electric leech
5: Girdle bug
6. Sunray shadow (night time favorite)
