Patagonian Waters – Fly Fishing in Patagonia

French film maker and Hardy Pro, Gregory Dolet returns with his follow up film to Blue in Tuna on the Fly, with Patagonian Waters, a wonderful exploration of the remarkable fly fishing in Patagonia.  Here he travels to the Chilean Andes as a guest of Geoffray Begard and Jean Domange, who are establishing their new fly fishing lodge on the banks of the Rio Simpson. Its a stunning mid sized river with the incredible backdrop of the Andes, but it doesn't mean the fish are easy and Gregory has a tricky first day until spotting and perfectly stalking a truly magical Chilean Brown Trout. After fishing some of the smaller tributaries for the abundant brown and rainbow trout, Gregory tries his hand at the King Salmon which also reside in these emerald green waters. As you'd expect, big grasshopper patterns are the way to go for the trout, as the windswept steppes push these abundant terrestrials onto the water making for some electric dry fly fishing. This is a fantastic film with the same stunning cinematography as his previous venture and if you hadn't thought about putting Patagonia on your fly fishing bucket list, you certainly will after watching this. The film is primarily in French with English subtitles. To watch, just join or login now

Unlike the american videos he does not “sell” the rivers. Just goes around in beautiful places. The only shortcoming is that is does not have many occasions how the trout grabs the fly… but that can be forgiven as the story is nice. The fisherman has a good technique and it is pleasant to see him fishing.
