We had a great trip to Estancia de Los Rios recently. It was so nice to get out of the winter and enjoy a week of summer in the mountains. Our fishing included spring creeks, the Cisnes River, and a couple lakes, all on a 360,000 acre ranch. We fished different water everyday and never left the property, and never saw anyone else. It was a pretty special experience. Here are a few of our favorite shots and there are more in the Facebook album.
We'd like to include the last of our blog contest short stories this week. These entries are from Rachel Dagovitz, Ted Eisele, and Robert Moore. Thank you all for participating. It sure was fun.
"I have always heard my fly fishing friends talk about epic fishing days, but until Nov 4th of this year, I never had that experience.Well, yeah baby, I finally had my day!!More than 20 steelhead to the net that Saturday at Elk Creek, PA.I’m still giddy two weeks later.Being on the water is great, but when everything comes together for an epic day, it’s just magical. "
It started with a TV show. Fly fishing for sharks? I watched and felt an adrenaline rush. “I’ve got to do that!” I told my family.
Finally, my daughter and I were there. An 8-foot hammerhead came up and bit the motor mount. I told Katie, “we’re NOT telling Mom!” Then it smashed my fly. Its runs had made the reel scream.
After running forever, it sounded. Slowly, I muscled it back up until it lay on the surface just 20 yards away. Then, it swung its tail around until the fin sliced the leader. Wow! -Ted Eisele
