3 Top Dry Fly's For Fly Fishing Patagonia
One of the questions we get asked most often by our guests is what fly's should I bring to Patagonia, Chile. That is a great question and one that we would like to provide for you to increase your chances of hooking that dream Patagonian Trout of a lifetime.
Beetles, Mouse Patterns, and Large Foam Attractors should be at the top of the list and these particular flies seem to put the biggest and baddest trout in the net for us day in and day out for our guests. Sounds like a fairy tale to most but in Patagonia, Chile this is simply the groceries that these magnificent creatures prefer to eat. So why not feed them a drowned rat or a monster size beetle imitation. IT Will Blow Your Mind!!
Here are 3 of our favorite patterns that will put fish over 2 feet in your hands consistently. Take note and be rewarded with Monster Patagonia Trout.
The Gypsy King-A pattern designed by one of the most innovative and creative fly fishermen in Patagonia, Rance Rathie, owner of Patagonia River Guides in Argentina. This pattern is a perfect imitation of a Cantaria Beetle and also works well as a cross over pattern for Dragonfly's. Dead drifted, Popped, Or Stripped this fly is awesome!
The Morrish Mouse-A fly that has proven itself the world over and continues to produce quality fish that leave memories engrained for a lifetime. This pattern was developed by Ken Morrish and has been a staple in Alaska, Kamchatka, and Patagonia for many years and will continue to do so.
The Chubby Chernobyl-Who doesn't like to fish the chubby. This fly is a guide's favorite the world over and has a cult like following and we are part of the tribe. It is such a great fly for it's float ability in rough waters and can be tied to imitate just about any type of large terrestrial. It floats like a cork, will float a large weighted nymph and is very easy to see.
