Matt from TEAM7x returned to the Patagonia Argentina region once again in early December with business associates, to fish the fabulous Rio Malleo.  Once again Omar "Banana" Martinez, the area's number one guide took care of every detail.

The Rancho San Humberto provided the first class lodging once again, under the Olson families 3rd generation management, with some 18 miles of private access to the Malleo.

Matt encountered an epic caddis hatch and knowing how difficult it can sometimes be to match the naturals, tied on a royal coachman (of all things) and sure enough was rewarded with a steady sipping 18" wild rainbow taking something he couldn't refuse!

The Rio Malleo is truly one of the world's great dry fly venues and Matt also took several big fish in  skinny water on a  gin clear spring feeder creek.  Weather (summer) was perfect and of course the Malleo was at perfect levels with wild trout throughout.

Another great trip to the Malleo.  If you get the opportunity, don't hesitate. We can give you some details, tips etc. on this world-class trout fishing venue!

DRAG FREE everybody and happy 2015!!
