IN THE ROUGH HILLS NORTH OF TREVELIN Pt. 1

STORY: Covey Rise – Written by: Reid Bryant | Photography: Brian Grossenbacher

In 1901, Robert Leroy Parker and Harry Alonzo Long-abaugh boarded the British ship Herminius under assumed names. Parker and Longabaugh were traveling in the company of a young woman of unusual good looks, whose given name was Etta Place. The trio set out under steam from New York City, journey bound for the port at Buenos Aires, where the men had arrangements to secure ranchland and livestock. In their possession were several tens of thousands of US dollars, and an already cemented reputation as among the most storied outlaws of the American West. Then as now, they were far better known respectively as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid…..

IN THE ROUGH HILLS NORTH OF TREVELIN Pt. 2

STORY: Covey Rise – Written by: Reid Bryant | Photography: Brian Grossenbacher

Nearly a hundred years after Butch and Sundance slipped away, nearly 20 years since he and Travis had first similarly wandered south, Rance Rathie pulled through the PRG Lodge head gate and aimed the truck toward the village of Trevelin. A coffee cup was wedged between his knees, and he fiddled with the radio dial until a crackling traditional milonga turned up, scoring the whine of the Toyota diesel and the scuffle of the pointers in the dog box. Rance cleared his throat and turned to me, slowing to a stop on the bridge shoulder. He rolled down the window to a gray May morning and peered out. Twenty feet below, a small stream eased along the base of the hill and wandered into the village. “If I’d have thought of it sooner,” he said, picking up his coffee cup and gesturing with it, “we could have given you a shot at an Argentine MacNab.” He cleared his throat again. “After the day you had yesterday, the trout would have been easy…”…..

Hooked on Patagonia

STORY: Nonstop Magazine – Written by: ADAM VAN BRIMMER | PHOTOGRAPHY BY: ISAIAS MICIU NICOLAEVICI

The Rio Gualjaina trickles eastward through a jagged gash in Patagonia’s desert steppe. Fed by melting snow at its source high in the Andes Mountains and sustained by springs that stubbornly puncture the hard, dry landscape, the river is narrow and shallow. Accessing it requires four-wheel drive and a chiropractor on retainer. The Gualjaina is no place for boater or beachcomber…..

Rio Pico with Patagonia River Guides

STORY: GRAY’S SPORTING JOURNAL

PRG has been offering exceptional expedition-style trips to the Rio Pico region in combination with other PRG programs for over a dozen years. Rio Pico is perfectly suited for guests wanting to get away from it all and who might enjoy a lodging program with fewer luxuries. There is not a paved road in the entire region and anglers often have to ford rivers and open several gates on the way to remote fishing locations. PRG’s professional guides, some of them that grew up fishing the region, are well equipped to fish in the isolated region and all have rugged 4×4 trucks, inflatable rafts with custom-designed fishing frames, and years of experience in negotiating the terrain. Our Rio Pico fishing program combines quite possibly the best lake fishing in all of Patagonia with exciting spring creek and small stream fishing. Both rainbow and brown trout, averaging six pounds and exceeding twenty pounds, can be targeted on one of the area’s many productive lakes, and often times these “hogs” can be landed on large dry flies….
