It wasn't that long ago that I was in Southern Chile, and here I am again. Gonzalo Cortes, my friend and owner of Chile's Chucao Lodge, invited me on a photo adventure. He is in the midst of compiling the second edition of his previous book "Fly Fishing Chilean Patagonia." We were the guests of Gaston and Claudio of Coyhaique River Lodge, while we fished and photographed some of the famous rivers and lakes in this part of Chile. A sampling of those photos is below.
This afternoon I am making a little side trip, since I was all the way down here anyway! I am flying across the Andes to Mendoza, Argentina. This is Argentina's most famous wine region, and also happens to be the headquarters of Avalon. I will be seeing their operation, and meeting with co-owner Filippo regarding future opportunities for travel and fishing in Cuba.
