I was feeling pretty pleased with myself after Hua Hum and was well pleased to have my first decent trout under my belt as I arrived in the lovely mountain town of San Martin Los Andes. On my way to the hostel I was truly humbled to see these young 'pescadors' pulling out huge trout of the river using nothing more than a worm, a tin can and a piece of nylon. Fishing there was prohibited. Good work boys! I slipped them a few pesos for some new line and hooks and bid them farewell. I'm starting to feel a bit daft for spending all that money on fancy fishing gear!
