Paul returns to Patagonia and starts his adventure fly fishing for Brown Trout on the Rio Chico, a tributary of the Rio Gallegos. As is typical here, the wind is strong and there's almost no cover for the angler so cunning, stealth and accurate casting are key to success. Guide, Derek Manson takes Paul to the water showing him the likely pots and holes in the myriad of braids that the river has split into here. Dry fly is the order of the day with heavily foamed patterns working best. Paul soon gets the hang of this landing a stunning 3lb brown from an area the size of a bathub! With plenty of weed around and undercut banks, Paul has to play the fish hard to stop them getting snagged up but the rewards are there with some beautiful Brown Trout landed. In part 2, Paul meets up with Peter Rippon on the Rio Gallegos to try for some of the huge Sea Trout that the river is famed for. Its incredibly windy but Peter assures Paul, this can be helpful and he's soon proved right as Paul hooks into a strong fresh fish of around 10lbs. Returning to the river the following day, the wind has eased and Peter reports a good run of fresh fish is in the river which came in on a big tide. Paul's rod soon bends over as a strong Sea Trout soon has him into the backing, heading back out to sea but will Paul be able to land a magical 20lber?
