Last week I had the pleasure of guiding two very good fishermen from Italy,Angelo and Gianfranco.
We spent 6 days on the water with a mixture of camp outs and Motels.
My favorite type of guiding is camping out and doing the yards, it puts you in the best places and maximizes your time, we caught over 100 fish in the 6 day’s but it was more about where we were fishing and hooking up in beautiful locations.
If you travel with a Fly rod there is a good chance you will get to go too some of the most scenic places a country has to offer, these boy’s were fit and we did do some good walking….well worth the effort.
Angelo would be the best fisherman I have taken out, he could cast both hands and was very quick to pick up on local patterns and understanding our style of fishing.
Gianfranco was very good as well, at night the guy’s would tie a few patterns as they were keen to catch trout on there own fly’s, and they all worked.
We fished a mixture of freestone rivers, spring creeks and small streams.
Fly fisherman’s paradise.
It’s a tough job when you have to go to places like this.
A nice Brownie.
You almost expect a T-Rex to come running out.
A beautiful wee Bow.
If you want to catch great Trout in some of the worlds most dramatic scenery get in touch I can can put together a package for you, many of my clients have fished all over the globe and they tell me these trips are world class, for me I have only fished in the south island of New Zealand so it’s hard for me to compare, but I do know it’s pretty bloody good.
