Recommended Gear for Villa Maria Lodge, Argentina

Villa Maria Lodge sits on the famous lower section of the Rio Grande where anglers have the good fortune of being first in line for chrome sea-run browns pushing into the river from the south Atlantic Ocean. The river here can be swift by powerful flows streaming off the Andes Mountains. Endless gravel bars, deep tanks, and prodigious runs are the norm. On any given day it is not uncommon to hook into a 20 pound Brown. The landscape of Tierra del Fuego is reminiscent of Wyoming or the Scottish low country. It includes sparsely populated wilderness, large sheep farming estancias, wild herds of llama-like Guanacos, plentiful red fox and majestic soaring condors above.
