Just a few of the nymphs that will be making the journey with me CA0841F5-7323-4F7D-A9D1-28BD038A7014.jpeg F420BE63-A941-41DE-B381-D7D0C04D3D6A.jpeg 031D204A-1A9B-4E22-ADD1-AB1DD023818B.jpeg 3253C921-A041-4BE7-8192-615045DDF444.jpeg 610D1CDD-BC92-4755-AA69-81664E6789FE.jpeg FC04DE0A-89F3-4E74-AB7E-5B01E5FF8DEB.jpeg 13549029-485B-4AC7-BE86-1E31B2AB3304.jpeg 4D4A99B6-6A18-4E22-A84C-B21A8DE58E39.jpeg 55E3C60F-B918-4516-9BC7-31A8D4178AEB.jpeg 8D92E873-DAFD-4955-B5BF-6C0508E87F7A.jpeg 1E9060E4-95E3-4988-B8E6-5954FD5E7BBF.jpeg 363B6383-62AA-4DC2-9243-2671AF9077AC.jpeg 432415BB-41B2-45D5-B40B-34820D7E5B88.jpeg E7B1DA49-AEAC-4006-91B2-F6A9C356D909.jpeg to Argentina in February. I’ll post photos of more styles in the coming weeks. With winter finally here in Anchorage, I have lots of time to tie. Ten inches of snow in the last few days and -10 forecast for tonight. Up north it’s going to drop to -50.
 
What a box o’ nymphs! I’m not sure where you are going in Argentina, but I’ve had great dry fly fishing throughout Patagonia. Be sure to have a selection of big dry flies and some emergers. Oh, and streamers...

Have camera, will travel...
Years ago I went to Jurassic Lake Lodge & the hot fly was a #6 Christmas tree woolly bugger. The lodge had a post that everyone would stick their hot patterns for the week on and greenish buggers dominated. The 4 or so hours when the wind died down dropping to smaller flies was the ticket with #8 and #10 Copper Johns cast in front of cruising trout worked well. We also threw some dries just to say we did it/it could be done even though there was not a bug in sight.

I hurt my knee on that trip and couldn't hike up the River, which was choked with trout, but my buddy did and caught a ton. Everything worked.

Checked out the ELV fishing program and it looks fantastic. It looks like you're on the right track with all those nymphs. I'm assuming you'll bring some big foam dries for Hopper/dropper rigs.

Have a great trip and please post a report.

Have a great trip! I'll be heading down in a few weeks. We rented a house and will freelance it again, fishing various mountain streams. I've got a good assortment, but one could do pretty well down there with just an Adams, Elk Hair Caddis, Pheasant Tail and Muddler.

Newfydog, where did you rent and how did you arrange it? I’ve a mind to do this some day.

Were going to Bariloche, with one week north of town and one week south. I'll do a write up when we get back, but you might check this tale of my last trip, when we did three weeks remarkably economically.
