Posted in Adventure Travel, Press | Tagged , | Leave a comment

Argentina will waive the visa reciprocity fee for Canadians starting Jan. 1, 2018.  Canadians will no longer need to pay the US$78 online fee before travel, as is currently required. Canadians remain visa-exempt for stays of up to 90 days in Argentina.

Argentina is making tourism easier for Canadians but so it Canada. Air Canada will soon have 6 weekly flights to Buenos Aires from Toronto, 3 of which will be direct.

Canadians, Argentina beckons!

– FFP’S TRIPS FOR TROUT BUMS, 2018 –
2 Rivers Expedition Combo
Collon Cura & Limay Medio Rivers
April 7-16, 2018

Our 4 day Wilderness Fishing Expeditions are by far our most raved about trip. So we created our 2 Rivers Expedition Combo to double the excitement.  April is the best trophy Brown Trout month of the season and these dates are notorious for huge pre-spawning fish.  Anglers will fish, float and camp 4 days/ 3 nights on the famed Collon Cura River and then transition to the trophy trout waters of the Limay Medio River to fish, float and camp for another 4 days/ 3 nights.  With our camp crew doing all the work, all you need to do is show up with your gear, clothes and toothbrush and be ready to fish hard.  The only choices you have to make are which fly to choose and which guide you wish to fish with each day.  You will get more fishing time than any other guided trip, enjoy freshly prepared delicious meals, a full bar and large private tents.  Glamping?? Maybe, certainly more comfort and better fishing than your average DIY trip.  This big trout adventure takes the best of Fly Fishing Patagonia and doubles it at a fantastic price.

Jurassic Lake preseason video. Wow!

Jurassic Lake preseason video. Wow!

Posted in Adventure Travel, Angling | Tagged , , | Leave a comment

This video was taken this morning on the Barancuso River, which feeds into Jurassic Lake. “Fish so think you could walk on them” is usually a phrase used for salmon in Alaska. With a strong snow pack in Argentina, it is going to be a great season!
