Fishing off the beaten path
A fun short clip of a dry fly eat while fishing a piece of backwater to the Rio Pico in the Chubut Argentina region of Patagonia. Fishing these side channels, sloughs, or backwater areas could produce nice results for patient anglers willing to test their skills in skinny water.
Brown trout and rainbows cruising these areas often were larger than what was found in the main river and typically were sight cast to. Unlike many of our local rivers, these backwaters were spring fed with cold, clean water rich with aquatic life, perfect trout habitat.
This particular brown fell for a Delektable RL CDC Elk Caddis that we sell at the shop in a few flavors. A buggy, flashy variation of the old school elk hair.
Just a little incentive to come down to Patagonia with me on next year's trip.
