A trip to remember

The morning of that day started really nice. Weather was good but too windy. We woke up at the camp and started fishing at 9 am. Wind was behind us complicating the casting and the fishing but we managed to catch a really nice trout, doing a long and forced casting, from the back of a rock.

After fighting against the weather, we finally caught a nice Rainbow trout of 19 inches in the second try,  throwing the fly to the exact place. That was the prettiest fish of the day.

That morning was spectacular. David fished with Gonzalo, as a guide, and I did it with Lieutenant Dan. We had lots of little catches but we lost three fish. In the middle of the morning, the temperature changed, so we had to use some nymphs Cooper Johnsize 10 and 12, because of the little activity in the surface.

At lunch time, wind was getting stronger. We ate, under some willow trees alongside the river, meet and salad. That afternoon was really complicated because of the strong wind.

The zone changed; there were almost no trees beside the river, but there were longer sliders in which we caught 5 nice fish. All afternoon long was about catching 10 and 12 fish, but at the end of the river there were no fishing activity at all.

There was a really interesting moment when we were in a huge and deep slider; we left the fly go 40 yards and at the end of the slider, we let the fly cross down and so we caught a really nice trout that cut our leader. That was the biggest trout of the day and we had to fish it with this new kind of method because wind was not letting us present the fly propperly casting normally.

On that four day of fly fishing we used fishing rods 5 with floating lines leaders 4X and flies Parachut Hoppers cadies and Cooper John. Also Pointer Fly Fishing shirts with inner layer and long sleeves Nike.

For something as important as protecting our body, we wore original Buff Gloves that are a special polar fleece that blocks 95% of the wind for great protection against cold, great for running, walking, biking and many other outdoor activities like fly fishing, Buff Neckwarmer to protect ourselves from the wind and sun; fleece and a drawstring for quick conversion from neck to headwear, a knitted outer layer combined with a Polartec fleece inner layer, super thermal product.

Another brand that we like using, (and we have been using the past three days) when it comes to waders and boots, it’s Simms.

This brand is one of the best in terms of protection because it is a fishing company. Founded on the pillars of innovation, it strives to build the highest quality products to keep anglers dry, comfortable, and protected from the elements – no matter the conditions.

The Company was the brainchild of visionary angler John Simms who saw a need to develop better waders and accessories than what was then available on the market. That quest led to the development of Simms Fishing Products in 1980. During that era, Simms was one of the first companies worldwide to introduce neoprene waders, which provided enhanced warmth and waterproofing gear for serious anglers pushing the limits of their fishing pursuits.

Today, Simms continues to take the fishing market by storm with a trained eye on fisheries conservation and inspired product development of the world’s premier technical fishing apparel, footwear, and equipment.

At the end of  the day, we stayed at Maiten Lodge located 30 minutes from the lake, and at 7 pm we were ready for Pizza and a couple of cold Stella Artois.

See you next time.
