Destino Yelcho en la Patagonia.

May 19, 2017 2 min read

A few years ago I was invited to Southern Chile to help with some fly casting instruction and demo's. It was a remarkable trip, one of my most memorable - but not so much for the fishing as much the trip was pre season.

It was the wonderfull people and the breathtaking countryside that made a lasting impact.

I came away having made new friendships that have endured and grown. Some, serendipitously, have grown into solid business relationships and a network of wonderful people involved in the industry.

Dear Carl,

Hoping is all doing well, I would be proud if you take a look to one of these videos. They are filmed in the Fly Fishing Lodge where I actually work as a Sales Manager, and it was so but so wonderful to make this film, casting one of your magnificent rods (The Epic FiberGlass 580 So Blue). 

If you wanna come to the Lodge and take a look to the scenery and the trouts, please to make contact with me.

Here you will find the entire film of 14 minutes: . Just take a quick look or if you want to watch the whole movie, that would be superb! It just sees so amazing the Fiber Glass So Blue being casted!! Sadly, we don't have the version with English subtitles, but once we have it, we'll share it.

Thanks for doing this amazing rods, it's really impressive been fly fishing with one of them!

Best regards,

Clemente Cortés Le-Quesne
Sales Manager at Yelcho en la Patagonia Lodge.

 

The blue Lightsaber you see in these clips is Clemente's Epic 580 purchased a couple of years ago. It's been well used.

Check out these guys at www.yelcho.cl - it's a magical part of the world and Yelcho lodge is a magnificent place to visit.

Fly Fishing - More thoughts on “selective" trout from Bob Wyatt

"We know that simple-brained animals like trout can’t deal with a lot of information at once, so while they are hunting they probably can’t think of much else. This isn’t selectivity but tunnel vision."
