Steelhead montage – Canon D10

Before coming up to Alaska this summer, I picked up Canon’s new point and shoot waterproof & shockproof camera, the Powershot D10.  It’s 12.1 mega pixels, takes fairly decent shots, and I especially like it for the rainy weather common to Southeast AK. It’s also a lot of fun to play around with the underwater video capabilities. I could go …

Underwater Steelhead Footage

Here’s some video that I took this May while fishing a small Southeast AK steelhead stream. It’s a bit shaky, but if you pay attention you’ll see a nice steelhead that was swimming just a couple feet in front of me. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4aw6_k7SpU]

TSIMANE SCOUTING -WINTER DORADOS

Just an update. We’ve been in the Amazon rainforest of Bolivia a few weeks ago, scouting and checking the fishing conditions before our first season starts up in August. The Secure River is a pristine clear water stream, where the freshwater dorado lives in the Amazon basin. It’s a unique blend of this extremely powerful species and Amazon species like …

An Argentine fishing in North America?

A couple months ago, after returning from Argentina, Nico and I found ourselves in Washington state and he wanted to sample some trout fishing –  North American style. I, of course, wanted to show off a bit and  prove to him that we also have some pretty damn good trout fishing this side of the Equator. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think …

Brown Trout LIMAY RIVER II

Days after coming back  from my fishing trip in the northern provinces of Argentina -Dorados in the cold I and II- I found myself  talking with my very good friend Marcelo Widmann from Bariloche about how where the last days of the season from his point of view. Usually at the end of the season,  fisherman concentrate their energies on one of the best Brown Trout rivers …

Xtream SEA TROUT fishing adventure

Once again the exploration group was becoming restless. After listening  to Alex and Luca’s overland adventure to the remote rivers of southern Tierra del Fuego , we decided that it wasn’t sufficient and we wanted to know ALL about the rivers till the end of the island. For all intents and purposes,  that probably meant that we were going to …

Dorados in the cold II – Upper Parana river

After two days fishing at La Zona, I took a 10 hour bus ride to Corrientes, and then jumped into a taxi to reach a little town further north. There, I met two good friends who are expert guides in the Parana river, Peto and Mariano. Almost immediately after the arrival they showed me a photo of a beautiful catfish that …

Dorados in the cold.

I was really looking forward to do this trip. My plan was to go to the lodge called La Zona in the city of Concordia to fish the last days of the season, and after that, travel north to fish the upper Parana River in Corrientes province. The weather was balmy and expert Dorado fisherman say that fishing for them …

Brown Trout – Rio Limay

Late season on the rivers around Bariloche is arguably one of the best places in the world to look for trophy brown trout, which drop down from the lakes and reservoirs en masse to spawn.  Over the last couple weeks I’ve been fortunate enough to fish with expert local guides and friends such as Willy Ricigliano, Juan Cruz, Mariano Wainstein …

Rio Santa Cruz – The Final Season

Our reliable source on the Rio Santa Cruz, Rodrigo Amadeo, has confirmed that the proposed dams on the Rio Santa Cruz in southern Patagonia are moving ahead at full steam and construction will begin in less than two months. This is yet another instance of wild rivers been tamed in the name of “progress”. What makes it especially painful for …
