New Year's Day-Chile

Happy New Year Everyone, from Lago Yelcho Chile. We finally saw our luck turn on the weather here, with yesterday being mixed, and today being downright glorious. My boys and Fran are packing up as we speak, leaving the lodge in the morning to spend a few days beings tourists before heading back home in time for school to start. I am joined by lodge owner Gonzalo Cortez tomorrow, who I will fish and photograph with for the next week in this general area.
