Buenos Aires to Pure Fly Fishing

Fisheries and species that allow to enjoy fly throughout the bonarense.

For many fans, the province of Buenos Aires is one of the “less mosqueras” from Argentina, with a vastly inferior to the Patagonian status or Mesopotamian. Paradoxically, under a deeper look and Inquisitor, this area offers a vast range of scenarios and freshwater species. Include doradillos, tarariras, carp, catfish, Tarpon, and assorted ultra-light of pig, sour heads, mojarrones and dientudos nightmare. Many times very, but very close to home. In this sense the summer 2016/17 was the auspicious sumamanente, with heavy rains and flooding that brought life and fish, diluting toxic, improving access to food or reproductive efficiency. A year that will be remembered for a long time…

The undulating pampa Brooks

Located to the northeast of Buenos Aires, its name derives from its orographic waves. This originates courses of good descent with outcrops of tosca that generate picturesque waterfalls and slides: excellent sites for fishing doradillos, that floods have traced them in good number based on bestfishingessentials.com. Among the most noteworthy, from North to South, are the Arroyo del Medio (serves as limit with Santa Fe), the Ramallo rivers reefs, Areco and Luján. Adds a dense network of tributaries like the Rojas, Salto, parchment and Los Leones, devoid of Golden waterfalls or dams that impede their migration, but excellent for illuminated, bitter head, dentudos, tarariras and omniscient tents. Courses at times very punished (industry, over-fishing and Agriculture) and even peri-urban security issues, but that line up the planets offer unforgettable fishing.

The little ones, with a predominance of doradillos of 300 g 1 kilo, are ideal for team no. 2 or 3, floating lines, shock tippet of fluorocarbon and streamers No. 6 and 4 of type Scampi or Woolly Bugger, who seem to be candies with the abundance of tosqueros. In larger rivers and fish than upper from 1 to 5 kg, as in the case of the environment, Rod N 6th with 11 to 14 cm doraderos streamers are used. Other delicacies are the Tarpon, which if found are chupeteando hangover on surface can take dry type “bread crumb” of wadding; difficult and maddening, but not impossible. In its lower sections near the Paraná, with flooding are added small pira pitás that patinated dry flies and nymphs take very well. The Reconquista, considered the second most polluted river of the Argentina, upstream of the dam Roggero has headers (peach and La Choza streams) very healthy. Complex sites, but they can deliver tarariras as crocodiles.

Río de la Plata urban

With the past floods, the silver urban Strip was filled with doradillos from 500 g to almost 3 kg. By practicality and proximity ground search for them in natural beaches with outcrops of tosca between Peru Beach and Vicente López reserve. An important variable is the quadrant and the intensity of the wind. The best condition is a soft breeze of Earth, with warm and sunny weather. Winds of more than 15 km/h River removed the coast committing the action of fly. Not to mention that the Río de la Plata dorado… does not wind like! Here is wading with water between the navel and the knee by likens water flats that naked espantadas fish, jumping, lomeadas, rolidos, or attacks on surface.
You don’t want to take root at a point. On the contrary, it is advisable to cover lots of water, go to the meeting of the Golden. A fundamental trigger is to slap the water with fly, generating a natural snap of “fish on the run”. Here almost all doradillos take between the Inn and the first two or three stripeos. The No. 4 teams are used to 6, with floating lines and streamers craft für 10 to 12 centimeters in until no. 1/0 hooks (hurt less).

Buenos Aires lagoons

The chained del Salado marked fire the tararirera generation of our elders. And after its epidemic of eutrophication, equivalent to ours were the diagonal Bragado/Junin lagunillas: beautiful, small and full of tarariras from 500 g to 1.5 kg (and surprises). Forget memorable days in El Abuelo, Aguas Claras, Dos Aguas, Vaca Muerta, Comodoro Py and dozens of others without name, such as the “Cocodrilero shrine” of Pepe Perrone. No doubt of mirrors more anglers across the province.
In this fairy tale, the first hack was soy (and their substitutes chemicals), then the slaughter by the 2007 nevada, followed by the great drought in 2009. There many loopholes were dried, burned the reeds and then planted them over. A revelation that we thought irreversible, most dealing with gaps of napa without evident interconnections. Nearly seven years after seeing them die several are back, not to the level before, but stirring a stew emotional that moves. A great discovery was the mustard lagoon, on the outskirts of Olavarria, the rarity of huge catfish very willing toads taking streamers dragged through the mud.

Mountains and sea

In the southwest of Buenos Aires are two mountain systems: Tandilia and Ventania. There they collide humid winds from the Atlantic, resulting in countless courses that drain into all the cardinal points.
On the Northeast slope of Ventania the headwaters of streams with a beautiful blue and Tapalque, outstanding mountain limestone structure. There, without the existence of predatory pressure the tarariras, the “dientudos” develop sizes tiranosauricos, proposing hilarious lances with equipitos No. 1 and nymphs or ministreamers arising in the current. Something similar happens with the pig, that they prefer slow, vegetated, and crystal clear waters. But undoubtedly the highlight are the tents, as this summer alongside Maxi Mendiri and Pepe Guazzone occurred to me in the arroyo Tapalqué. Tents from 1 to 5 kg fish seen, proposing the most technical and challenging fishing know.

Other important courses emerge from the southern slope system Ventania, as large Willow with their trout, perch, mackerel and enormous tents. In that sense I’m enthralled with the reservoir passage of stones, full of carp of average 3 kg and monsters that rubbing the 9 kg. The undisputed Mecca of the Buenos Aires carpofilos, at the level of many Patagonian areas.

Take what here describe as an extremely tight synthesis of territory with much water to be discovered. Missing flounders, Jackfish, horns and escardones at sea, trout in Highland headers and silverside in an endless plethora of lagoons and streams. And let us not forget “the worst of all”: the lisa. The Chinese dragon fly, they all crave… but nobody took the tab!
