– 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!

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!

Fishing and hunting report, Esquina, Corrientes

Posted in Adventure Travel, Trip Reports, Wing Shooting | Tagged , , | Leave a comment

Our season in Esquina started off with an abundance of water and unfortunately the rains continued through much of May, dampening the Dorado fishing, scattering the ducks and making it difficult to access our dove fields.  Despite the conditions, guests experienced some excellent hunts but not every day like we normally see in May.
Marcott Ducka

Rains subsided in June and conditions returned to normal. But July was hot, too hot! This had minor effects on our duck hunts, no effects on the dove but changed the normal timing of our perdiz hunts. Since dogs do not hunt well in hot temperatures, we hunted Perdiz in the cooler mornings and shot dove or ducks in the afternoons. While not the preferred schedule, our guests did not seem to mind as most hunters limited out or got close to it. But it goes without saying that hunting in temperatures lower than 75 is more comfortable.

The mid 80’s temperatures in July did bring a nice bonus, Awesome Dorado Fishing!  This was the hot spell we tell our booking hunters about; “fishing is slow in the dead of winter but a hot spell will turn them on strong.” The fishing was so good in Late July that a couple groups opted to fish more instead of hunt and we heard comments like “my best day fishing ever!”

Our current guests are experiencing perfect weather and limiting out on ducks every session. With favorable conditions forecasted for the next 10 days we foresee the season ending with a strong finish.

Give us call to discuss your next sporting adventure in Argentina!
