The Rio Grande is renown for its massive populations of very big sea-run brown trout. In fact, some consider it to be the world’s best sea-run brown trout fishery on earth. Two years ago, The Fly Shop invited Todd Moen to film Scottish angler Gordon Armstrong as he fished the Argentinian stretch of the Rio Grande at the Estancia Maria Behety Lodge.

A Deviant Flyfisher thinks to himself:
“Definitely that time of year again, Paul … sea-trout porn appearing on almost every fishy screen you have not successfully managed to avoid … regular emails in from various international sporting agents offering you juicy, Winter is Coming weeks at various TDF and Gallegos Lodges … what did Harry very nearly say way to you back when…? … “I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he have a 17 and an 18 on small nymphs before lunch, then an 18 and a 19 in the evening, then three 20s the following day, two of them on a Bomber, or was it only one’? Well to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. But being that this is the Rio Grande, the most whacker-packed sea-trout river in the world, and would blow your wading boots and SST jacket clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well do ya, punk?”
“I always feel lucky, Harry – to have done what I did when I did it.”
