Week Report 5 Las Buitreras 2017

Week Report 5 Las Buitreras 2017

 

While week 4 was about introducing new clients to the fishing in Rio Gallegos week 5 was all about welcoming old friends back to the Estancia!

The group included our dear friends Sten, Bent Christian, Derek and David who’s all visited us here more than 10 times and decided to yet again spend a week at estancia Las Buitreras and chase some of those highly addictive chromers of Rio Gallegos!

 

Week Report 5 Las Buitreras 2017

“The experience of fishing here so many times before showed immediately and we saw plenty of fish landed already during the first session.”

Gerald, here for the third time showed real dedication on the water and his hard work paid off! With 16 landed seatrout and a couple nice fish lost that would have seen him passing the magic 20 fish mark Gerald finished top rod in the group! An effort to be proud of in a group like this!

 

Week Report 5 Las Buitreras 2017

Guitar Thursday is a tradition worth holding on to, especially when Derek is taking the lead accompanied by keen co-guests and staff! A new fan favourite was introduced to the group and received high praise all over! Especially the part about Solid Adventures owner Christer Sjöberg’s relentless but so far fruitless efforts of becoming the seatrout record holder of his family! (link to the live performance below).

Week Report 5 Las Buitreras 2017

The week saw some overall good fishing conditions and the total of seatrout landed ended with 74 fish. Another estimated 35 – 40 seatrout were lost during the week, mostly due to the necessity of fishing smaller flies and thinner leaders when conditions demanded it.
