Hear about fishing in Argentina

Trout Unlimited to host Patagonia fishing guide


By TERRY SMITH

The Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited resumes its monthly meetings on Thursday, Sept. 6, with a presentation on fishing the San Martin de los Andes area of Patagonia in Argentina.

With the closure of the Roosevelt Grill, the chapter announced that it will now hold monthly meetings at the Cellar Pub at 400 Sun Valley Road in Ketchum.

Thursday’s meeting will run from 5-7 p.m. The public is invited and admission is free.

The meeting will feature a presentation by Ron Sorensen, who along with his wife, Vanessa, owns Chocolate Lab Expeditions in Argentina. Before settling in Argentina, Sorensen was a tour guide on the Madison River in Montana.

According to a Trout Unlimited press release, Sorensen will discuss fishing various waters in northern Patagonia and techniques applicable to both fly and bait fisherman.

“Ron will briefly describe the area he covers, and then talk in detail about the waters he fishes in the San Martin de los Andes area,” the press release states. “From small spring creeks and freestone streams to bigger waters such as the Collon Cura and the tactical tail water of the lower Limay, the San Martin area offers an incredible variety of excellent fisheries.”

The Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited, an organization dedicated to preservation of cold-water fisheries and habitat, holds monthly meetings, typically on the first Thursday of each month, from September through May.
