Patagonian Silver

Patagonian Silver

66 min + 37 min bonus (2011)

Rio Gallegos in Patagonia offers some of the world’s best sea trout fishing.
Using Las Buitreras Fishing Lodge as our base, we set off for an exciting adventure along the river.

We struggle to get our flies out in the wind, which sometimes reaches speeds of 100 km an hour. And when the trout takes, it feels as if time is standing still, and even the wind ceases to exist.
Leap after leap, high up into the air – the fight never seems to end.
The powerful silver fighter never gives up, leaving you with memories for life.

The flora and fauna in this arid landscape are very interesting. Along the river we experience the richness of its birdlife, as well as the curiosity of lots of other unusual animals.
We visit the majestic Perito Moreno glacier and get to know the charming Magellan penguins on the Straits of Magellan.

In the bonus material you’ll see, among other things, Claudio tying his favourite fly, get tips about fishing equipment and learn more about what Las Buitreras has to offer.
Join us in our adventure to Argentina, and meet Patagonia’s silver!
