Anyone who has fished Patagonia's Rio Gallego?

Hello,

I am going down to Rio Gallego to do the field work for some angling maps, the last week of January next year. It would be great to hear about fly patterns from those of you that have fished for searun browns down there. I hear lots lots about Girdle Bugs and Wooly Buggers, but there must be more to it?

An excellent conection for this area would be Diego H. Rabin and his representative web site : www.fishingargentina.com.

You are indeed a very fortunate man !!!

I have several friends that have fished these waters....

Bob Quigley in particular....... Bob is a long time friend of Diego, and they have fished the waters of Chile and Argentina for over 30 years.

I have yet to fish there, But OHHHHH some day !!!

The slide shows that Quigley returns with from Chile and Argentina are alone enough to make the blood race !!!

I can also connect you directly to Bob Quigley if you wish. He can tie whatever patterns you will need.

Take Care.......Bob Meiser

There was a fly shop owner here in Chicago who was an Argentianian who went back each year in January/February. He would show me the pictures of the big browns, rainbows, steelhead he took..

Looked great, some bigger rivers with wind, good opportunity to use the spey rod.

If I remember right they were using streamers and nymphs for the sea run brown fishing.

Good luck and tell us about the results and experience etc...

Per -

I will go someday too, no idea when but it is a dream of mine to go there.

As for flies, based on what I have read I would have confidence in swimming bunny rats and matuka rats in front of their gnarly jaws:

Probably would try mostly black, natural rabbit (for scuplin imitation), purple for attraction, etc.

Beau's notes on skating them up sure got my blood pumping too!
