Las Buitreras Fishing Report Week 5

Las Buitreras Fishing Report Week 5 and the good old saying: “a Permit is a Permit!” doesnt necessarily apply to other gamefish or translate into “a fish is a fish”. Certainly on trout species, the setting makes a difference, and that’s the introduction for week 5 here at Las Buitreras.

A mixed group of anglers have joined forces to subdue the illusive monster sea trout of the Patagonian desert.

Although the conditions were not as inviting as our menu of local specialities, both teams adapted quickly to the prevailing weather and water situation. Low water and a warm high pressure period shifted the focus on a stealthy approach with relatively light tackle. Whilst getting the tackle ready to talk these magnificent fish into a bite is a quite easy thing that the guides of Las Buitreras are in tune with, handling these oversize fish is another. Naturally it takes a while to adjust to the daunting task of playing quite possibly the biggest trout of one’s lifetime on very light tackle – about three times the amount of the week’s total was lost “in space”
