The cane you see in the photo, is one that Gustavo Prato built exquisitely as few have managed to do.
He was a passionate pioneer and “thinker” of fly fishing here in this part of Argentina.
He has not been with us physically since some years but it is clear that his influence still lives on some who knew him.
I was fortunate to share a certain friendship with him and it is always inspiring for me remember him.
Wherever you are, thanks Gustavo! We miss you.
Last friday , my son Franco and me, went to Intiyaco to spend a day of fly fishing.
Was a very productive day, sunny and windy. Very clear waters with active and strong rainbow trouts.
My 7 feet, # 5 weight line Fenwick fiberglass fly rod builded by my late friend Carlos Tam, was a precise election. Enjoyed a lot.
Welcome to the photo gallery!
Sunny and brilliant day on “Condorito” National Park. The “Achala Creek” showed us brookies everywhere! Some of them very dark coloured, like those captured on deepest pools. They all offered a good fight.
Nymphs on hooks # 16 and # 14 were the best choice.
This stream is becoming more productive and interesting and It seems to me that I will fish here several more times during this season.
Some photos for you:
