In this week’s post, I thought I’d share some final images from Argentina. We spent a week fly fishing in Argentina at Chochoy Mallin lodge with SET Fly Fishing. A week later, we found ourselves in southern Chile fly fishing with Rumbo Patagon. Between these fly fishing weeks, we travelled by boat and bus through the Andes between these two countries. The time was well-spent as we rested from our first week of nonstop fly fishing. Here are a few favorite images that I haven’t shared in prior posts.

I found these bees at dusk covering the roses at Trocoman House. They were still these in the morning waiting for the sun to warm them up.

Yes, we land close to the water! Our pilot Tomy does it purposely to minimize dust, rocks, and other debris hitting the helicopter.
