The Benefits of Flying on a Private Jet

Considering Private Charter?

interior2

Today I bring you one more fact proving that Pointer Fly Fishing is your best option for your fishing trip.

Over the years we’ve learned that some of our clients want a more luxurious and special stay; so, to fulfill their wishes we offer private jets for a fancy and private first class flight.

A Guide for First-time Flyers:

Over the years, the popularity of private air charter services has soared.  And once you’ve experienced a private charter flight, you’ll understand why!  While there are many reasons for the growing interest in charter air services, common motivations for flying private charter include the greater convenience, comfort, privacy — and productivity — that private charter flights provide, above and beyond what is provided by first- and business-class seats offered by commercial airlines.

Indeed, some of the benefits for private air charter — such as schedule and productivity gains — can help to off-set the typically higher fees paid for private air charter flights.

And for luxury-seekers, of course there is nothing quite like the comfort and privacy of your own private flight!

We can offer you a Metroliner, a King Air 90 or a Piper Navajo.

There are many reasons to ask for this service and enjoy the benefits. Check it out:

-SAVING TIME: This is one of the most important reasons for using this service. You can get to the airport only a few minutes before your departure time, fly directly to your destination and avoid long queues waiting at the commercial airport.

-PRODUCTIVITY: Saving time provides a significantly more productive time. You and your team can take advantage of the travelling time discussing your hunting options or just catching up.

-CONVENIENCE: There are more airports that can be used for private jets (compared to commercial airports). This means that we can land closer to your lodge or final destination.

-FLEXIBILITY: Aircrafts can be available in a few hours after requested and can wait if you are delayed.

-QUALITY OF SERVICE: The private jet offers luxury facilities, lot of space, individual attention and besides, you can request (in advance) your favourite foods and drinks.

-PRIVACY: You can feel at home when travelling to your destination.

-STRESS REDUCTION: You will be much more relaxed without long delays, transfers or lost luggage.

In-flight Entertainment, Catering and Other Amenities…

But your enjoyment doesn’t end with a comfortable flight.  These days, many private jets are equipped with DVD and CD players — and some even offer surround sound.  You’ll have a library of movies and music to choose from — or you can bring along your own.  Our flight planner will work with you to make sure you have the entertainment you desire.

On request, catering services and a well-stocked bar can be planned ahead to meet all your in-flight dining and entertainment needs.  From healthy vegetarian meals to gourmet coffees, from in-flight snacks to warm rolls with dinner, from fresh fruit juices to premium wines and liquors, all your wishes can be fulfilled, no matter how extravagant.

In most cases, catering is provided by top restaurants located within the vicinity of related airports – not by standard commercial airline food services – so food quality is far superior to commercial flight options.

Fishing Dorado at San Javier Lodge Argentina

tn_dorado_1024_68A7262We have been fishing Dorado for 2 amazing dates at San Javier River Lodge (Santa Fe, Argentina) and marshlands with Robert and Todd (who have a great first name: Parrish), from Texas.

San Javier Lodge

San Javier Lodge

We had the strongest rain somebody can remember the day before, what was giving us a kind of bad feeling, but on Wednesday, weather was not that bad. Any way we had rain on the morning so we all had our raining gear and did our best to get some fish. Piranha was very active and we have some of them too.

The afternoon was much better, and with some sun over our shoulders, we had one lovely sunset on the river, and for Todd and Robert was a unique experience far away from the office.

One of them just told us yesterday before supper that he sent an email to his best friend with the following note:

“I have rate San Javier Lodge as excellent because of its very nice Argentina Estancia setting close by to the famous River and effort by all the lodge staff members to make you feel welcome and at home in their home. A very courteous personal service for food and wine, also scrambled eggs for breakfast with great bacon is a treat North Americans rarely find on the table in Argentina. The staff spoke excellent English which was very comforting when wanting to relax after 10 hours of fishing. I highly recommend this place.”

tn_dorado_1024_68A7274

South America‘s Golden Dorado is a rare game fish known for its unique beauty, ferocious fighting, explosive runs and tarpon-like acrobatics.  Though the fish has been famous among South American anglers for quite some time, very few outsiders had even heard of the Golden Dorado – let alone fished for them.  In the last 10 years, however, the Dorado\’s reputation as one of the world\’s best freshwater fighters went global.  Today, adventurous anglers from around the world are flocking to South America in pursuit of this magnificent game fish.

Today, we expect to have another great day… we will tell you later… J

Faena Hotel

Have you ever heard about The Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires? Well let me tell you that this luxurious hotel is known worldwide because of its exquisite design.

faena1

The Faena, formally known as Faena Hotel+Universe, is a five star hotel in Puerto Madero (a neighbourhood of Buenos Aires).

faena7

A Little Bit of History…

The lot where the hotel sits today was originally purchased in 1902. .The structure measured 25,000 m2 (270,000 ft2) in indoor area and was built with bricks imported from Manchester.

Saved from the wrecking ball by local cultural preservation associations, the building was purchased by fashion designer Alan Faena, who after a US$40 million investment opened the Faena Hotel in October 2004.

Refurbished and decorated by designer Philippe Starck, the hotel has 105 rooms and is adjacent to an apartment complex of 83 units. The hotel includes the rustic El Mercado restaurant, a café, wine cellar, fashion boutique, cabaret and spa. The Cabaret hosts the number one Tango show in Buenos Aires “Rojo Tango”.

Cuisine

Besides enjoying a unique stay, the hotel offers its guests various options of excellence with its gourmet service. The Faena counts with six restaurants and bars. One of them is “El Mercado”; where you can enjoy traditional Argentinian cuisine from their rustic adobe oven. Another is “El Bistro”, which represents the latest trends in contemporary cuisine.

Strobel Lake: Shelter of Huge Rainbow Trout

tn_DSC_16381Fishing in this lake is definitely a unique experience. You have the feeling of being in a space where you cannot distinguish what is real from what is not, like a dream.

Here, the rainbow trout fishing is one of the most inhospitable and extreme of all the country.

tn_IMG_4355

“Strobel Lake” is located in the central plateau of Santa Cruz province, which has approximately 20 km long and 15 km wide and is 900 meters above sea level. It is a desert area, very rugged, with very little vegetation and full of volcanic rock, which makes it very difficult to reach. In fact, the last few miles are done very slowly to avoid damaging the trucks. You can see plenty of species of migratory birds and some endemic species such as the Hooded Grebe. Also, in the area inhabit lots of wild pumas (a large feline that resembles a lion) and guanacos (similar to a llama).

tn_IMG_4706

Even though we all see pictures, watch videos and read comments of other travelers before making our own trip, it is very hard to put in words or pictures how it is here in this wonderful fishing place, where is found one of the largest and wildest rainbow trout populations of the planet. Not only is the size of these fish what amazes people, but also, their vitality and strength.

It is possible to catch trout in between 4.4 pounds and 26 pounds, with an average size of 11 pounds; and it is not crazy to think that with the lake in good condition, an average angler can get 30, 40 or even more of these fish.

tn_foto 11

It is hard to think that a fish of this size has so much energy during “the fight”, creating endless runs and jumping over and over again. With this in mind, there are plenty of different possibilities and options for anglers. You can choose to fish in the lake with heavy hand equipment or with a two handed #7, and a streamer or tube fly. Or you can fish in the area close to the mouth of the only stream that enters the lake area, the Barrancoso River, since this is an obligatory route for the trout that try to enter the River. In the area near the mouth, we can try with lighter equipment, depending on the strength of the wind. But, there is no doubt that the most intense experience is exploring the crystal clear water of the Barrancoso River.

IF

“Our stay was fantastic; the staff of the lodge is always paying attention to the guest’s needs, the food is excellent and the guides are very professional. And most important of all: “the fishing was from another planet”.

LAN AIRLINES

lan-1

This Airline is the chosen one. Almost all of our clients that come to Argentina come with LAN, one of the largest airlines in Latin America, serving Latin America, North America, the Caribbean, Oceania, and Europe.

LAN Airlines operates in 31 international, 17 domestic (Chile), 5 seasonal and 4 marketed destinations in 21 countries.

lan3

Besides having excellent units, LAN offers their clients lots of benefits, such as LANPASS. They created the LANPASS frequent flyer program to reward customer loyalty. There are currently over four million members. Every year, over 250,000 LANPASS members fly for free. LANPASS members earn kilometers every time they fly with LAN.

If you are going to come to Argentina, Pointer Fly Fishing definitely recommends LAN. It has a great connection via Santiago de Chile (the best one), or there is another one via Lima that has a better pricing but you have to change planes early in the morning (like 2 am).
