Tres Valles, Argentina

The view from the dining room

This has been an interesting week here at Tres Valles, Argentina. We've had a mixed bag of weather but lots of sunshine, typical of spring in Argentina. Lots of wind in the beginning of the week followed by warm sunny breezy days - perfect fishing weather - and finishing up today with very little wind, some sunshine, and some showers passing through the valley. All of the streams and spring creeks are in great shape and we've all enjoyed a new spring creek located in the next valley over. The more we visit Tres Valles, the more we love it. There is no end to exploring new water and discovering new fishing spots in this part of Patagonia. We start home tomorrow but are already looking forward to next year!

Agua Boa Album

I think I've got the Wordpress album figured out. Here are a few shots from our recent Agua Boa peacock bass trip. One of the best trips ever!

New Site

After many months in the planning, we launched the new web site last night. We're still tweaking, of course, but excited about it. The store will grow as we add flies and put the finishing touches on it to make it as easy to use as possible. We're hopeful that the Connect Community will be a fun place for everyone to share photos, conversations, tips, comments, and stories. We welcome your suggestions and comments.

We got home from the Amazon last Sunday night. We had a great trip. Lots of fish, water was in great shape, and amazing stories to tell by all. We broke the lodge record for broken rods (I don't know if that is something we should talk too much about). We had a group of good fishermen but the bass were rested, hungry and determined to test our skills and tackle!

We fished the river and the lagoons and  found fish everywhere we went. We had long fishing days. If you want, you can cast continuously all day. As they say, keep your fly in the water and keep it moving.

Thank you to Frontiers for organizing the departure and to Agua Boa Amazon Lodge. We'll see you next year!

Bluegrass TU, Lexington, KY

We spent the weekend in Lexington, KY. It was a beautiful fall weekend and the opening of Keenland so needless to say town was full of horse people. But, we were there for a TU event at Talon Winery. We had a casting clinic, demo, and Barry presented his Digital Photography program. It was a beautiful fall afternoon and evening. Live music, good food, great company.

Saturday we spent a day on the lovely Cumberland River with guides Mike Wloswski and Troy Humphrey. Our fishing partners were Susan Slade and Robert Van Onselder and we had a great time. Caught a few fish, enjoyed a beautiful day, and ate lots of good food as the photos will show.

Thank you Bluegrass TU for a great weekend.
