    Hi kuka,

    Thanks for sharing your photos. Very nice fish. I see you are using a double handed rod. What flies are you fishing for those big browns?

    Yes Frank, i use double handed rod is much better and rivers comodopara ground fire or Rio Gallegos, also use them for large Chinook in chile .. In these rivers have to throw long distances and also the wind almost always blows average 30 miles and flies usually heavy .. like little cats.
    Depends on the month that you are fishing is more or less wind, more or less water, more or less clear, and according to these conditions with different fishing flies and lines ..
    Rio Grande in November and December and usually has a lot of dirty water thaws, you need to get quickly to the floor or bottom. Trout are newly arrived and looking calm waters with little current. In these times you use sinking lines V and VI and also T 17 / 18.
    Big flies similar to those used for steelhead and many rubber feet.
    Later in January and February, it is easy ... ja ja , they are all on wells and close together and they take everything, nymphs, streamers, and even on occasion for some dry up.
    The waters are low and the trout and are quiet. Often with low water the river becomes more technical to fish .. This is more what happens in Rio Gallegos, is more difficult to catch but the river is smaller and more comfortable with the wind .. only if you're right is favorable side .. This area of ​​Patagonia is very hard.
    I use LOOP multi or black line # 8, 12 `8` and use interchangeable shooting head lines (LOOP).
    Flies: trailer hooks (Paul Miller), buggers, etc. in "the Fly Shop" has a section with flies Rio Grande.
    To Rio Gallegos, is another thing, the trout are more scary, use small flies, tube flies, and flies similar to Beech Creek.
    We use a floating or sinking lines II or III. It's more fun.
    Greetings
    Kuka

    Dang Martin those are sure some nice looking fish you are catching, I'm jones'n to go to Patagonia some day! I can see why you have gone to a two handed rod with that kind of wind your dealing with. Here in Wyoming we get some pretty hard wind in the spring.

    I saw an episode of Hooked on the Fly that was done on the Rio Gallegos. Looked pretty incredible, and definitely made me want to make a trip there someday. Awesome pics!
