Throughout this series, I have tried to bring a glimpse of what is going on at the frontier of fly fishing for trout & grayling, though have not really explored other developments, such as fly fishing for other species and, notably, salt water. I do very little of the latter and there are far more experienced fly fishers in these areas to broadcast what is going on.
The south-easterly winds are bringing in the bonefish in serious numbers! Keith Rose-Innes reports from Alphonse.
Frontiers report from the Ponoi as the end of the season is in sight.
After much anticipation and interest we are delighted to report back on an extremely successful and productive first week of our season. In truth the week had it all. Large numbers of solid bonefish landed (with good numbers of 10lb plus fish thrown in), some monster GT's, trophy sized bluefin trevally...and yes even some gorgeous Indo Pacific permit made to the net.
After working for seven years with LOOP and Solid Adventures the fly fishing guide Juan Manuel Biott, born and raised in South Patagonia, has decided to move on and start his own company.
Justin McCarthy reports back on another exciting week on the Kharlovka River.
As we reach the last week of the main 2014 season at ASR, it seemed an appropriate time to try to take stock and reflect on what has been an unpredictable but ultimately very successful season.
What a week it’s been as once again the catches on both the flats and out in the bluewater have been extremely good. The biggest GT of 91 cm’s was landed by Hendrick while fishing an exquisitely tied silver and white baitfish pattern.
In partnership with UMass Amherst and Carleton University, the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT) has officially launched 'The Atlantic Tarpon Acoustic Tagging Project' by tagging its first two fish in the Lower Florida Keys! Two acoustic tags were placed in tarpon this week by BTT contributing scientists Lucas Griffin from UMass Amherst and Jake Brownscombe from Carleton University.
With the new Las Buitreras season upon us down in Argentina, and with 10 fantastic years of amazing fishing and experiences at Las Buitreras we are now looking forward to see what this 11th year will have to offer fishing the wonderful Rio Gallegos for silvery sea trout.
