With today's blog, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and anxious to get 2019 underway. Cleaning out file drawers and looking back over customers orders, trip folders, receipts, and correspondence always puts us in this reflective mood.
Barry and I leave for Chile next week for a week at Coyhaique River Lodge. We haven't traveled since early December when we visited Le Fario and Tres Valles lodges in the Esquel region of Argentina and Coyhaique is roughly just a jump over the border and a stone's throw a bit to the north.
It's probably not necessary to say that we love this part of the world. It gets us out of the northeast winter and into more trout streams, spring creeks, lakes and rivers than we could possibly get to in a lifetime of fishing. The country, the people, and the food and wine are always amazing.
We'll spend much of February and March in Argentina and we still have a few couple rooms available. If you will need a trout fix by then consider coming along with us.
Here are a few photos from Tres Valles, one of the stops on our March departure. All of the Patagonia lodges are pretty special to us and we'd love to have you at any of them.
