sea trout schedule for joe this season

Available now in Buitreras
5-12 march - 5 rods
26 march - 2 april - 6 rods
2-9 april - 8 rods

The Rio Gallegos River

is nearly 300kms in length and has its origin in the Southern Andes with two pristine and very beautiful streams, the Penitente and the Ruebens. Winding its way through the wild Patagonian landscape.It emerges into the surprisingly mountainous area that encompasses the unique Las Buitreras beats, some 40kms from the river mouth. The flood plain that lies between these outcrops teems with birdlife, alongside large numbers of rheas, silver foxes, horses, hares, flamingos and guanacos.

A trip to Rio Gallegos River offers the adventorous angler the opportunity to pit his skills against the explosive searunningtrouts of Patagonia.
These fish can reach sizes of 25lbs and over and will reward the angler with arm wrenching takes and blistering runs, interspersed with regular acrobatic displays.
Loop Las Buitreras lodge is home to the most prolific beats on the Rio Gallegos, consisting of over 40kms of both sides private water comprising over 50 named pools.


The fishing is exciting and varied with pools ranging from deep stony runs to cut banks and streamy shingle flats. Relatively shallow, the river makes for easy wading, obviating the need for fast sinking lines and creating an exciting and challenging fishing environment.
It is this variety, in combination with the visually inspiring mountainous outcrops, that makes this part of the Rio Gallegos quite simply one of the most spectacular stretches of fly fishing water in Patagonia. Sometimes explosive, always challenging, fishing for sea trout requires a level of skill, watercraft and understanding that can frustrate the average salmon angler.However, armed with the correct knowledge to unlock these secrets, the fishing on the Rio Gallegos can be immensely rewarding.


To help you we pride ourselves on having who we consider to be some of the best guides available, now with 4 seasons experience of the beats. Very knowledgeable and talented fishermen, that today also belongs to some of the best casters and instructors we have seen, they are the epotime of what guided fishing is all about. Friendly, able to speak good English and usually with a secret flybox tucked away with unsightly but deadly creations they will ensure that you get the very most out of your trip.

As with 2007, the season 2008 saw an increase in average weight and we could also see more fish in the river, although not always easy to catch. Our work in the estuary is clearly paying off and we look very optimistic at the future in Rio Gallegos.

LOOP Carbon Fiber Push Pole

In today's world of shallow water skiffs there is an arsenal of necessary fishing equipment typically found onboard, with one of the most important being a push pole. Without this critical item one would find themselves at an incredible disadvantage on the flats and at the mercy of the tide and wind. Trolling motors, although useful in some situations, are typically too noisy, spook fish, and can't operate in water as shallow as fish can go. Poling offers skiff based anglers the stealth needed to sneak up on wary fish and the ability to hold in places that fish travel through. Push poles come in an endless variety of sizes, materials, and lengths with the most critical features being weight and flex.

Recently, I got the opportunity to demo the new push pole from Loop tackle. Although new to the push pole game, Loop has designed one of the lightest and strongest push poles on the market. Through rigorous product development and testing Loop has produced an incredible fishing tool made from high quality carbon fiber that is feather light yet rigid enough to hold a larger skiff into the wind and current. This push pole is sectional and built to very tight specifications.
It incorporates a ridged scrim surface that provides an unparalleled grip, even when wet! The joints are bonded using a proprietary process that guarantees a strong, sealed joint. The ferrules that connect the five-foot sections are made from graphite which makes for a lightweight connection that flexes evenly with the rest of the pole.

While many people are opposed to multi-piece push poles because of weak connections and water intrusion issues I have not had any of these problems arise after heavy use for 5 months. The Loop pole weighs 3.2 ounces per foot, with a 21' pole weighing roughly 4 lbs! The unique L foot pushes very well in marl and soft muddy bottom, which unplugs much better than the typical paddle versions out there. Both the foot and point are made from solid nylon plastic, a durable product that holds up to razor sharp oysters and coral.

Loop is an innovator of cutting edge fly fishing equipment and this new push pole is a great compliment to their current product line. This product can be found on the Carbon Marine web store at The founder of Carbon Marine, Joe Welbourn, is currently distributing this product for Loop and will gladly help out with assembly, instruction, and delivery. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these bad boys, your arms will thank you for it.

New company to offer Loop Tackle

Jeff Wilson, shop manager at Joe Roope's Castaway Fly Fishing Shop, prices inventory Wednesday during his shift at the Coeur d'Alene tackle dealer.

Nordic Fly Fishers to distribute nationally

COEUR d'ALENE -- Joe Roope, owner of Castaway Fly Fishing Shop of Coeur d'Alene and a small group of Northwest investors have created a new company, Nordic Fly Fishers, USA, LLC, the United States distributorship of Loop Tackle Design AB of Sweden.

Loop Tackle, located in Akersberga, near Stockholm, was founded more than 30 years ago by current owner and CEO Christer Sjoberg. The company designs and manufactures fly fishing equipment, clothing and accessories.

Operating out of Coeur d'Alene, the main product lines Nordic Fly Fishers, USA, LLC, will distribute nationally include single- and double-handed fresh and saltwater fly fishing rods, fresh and salt water fly reels, waders, fishing jackets, vests, fly lines, warm and cold weather base layer clothing, and a select number of accessories.

"We are confident that our innovative and field-proven fly fishing gear and clothing will enjoy the same popularity and fierce customer loyalty in the USA that we have in the rest of the world," Roope said.

Loop products have been offered at Castaway for the past four years and the longtime Coeur d'Alene fly fishing shop has been distributing the products throughout the West under a limited territory distribution agreement, as well as being the USA service and warranty center for the company.

Castaway is managed by Roope and his nephew, Jeff Wilson. The fly fishing shop was founded more than 40 years ago by Joe's father, the late Joe Roope Sr.

Wilson will take on most of the day-to-day responsibilities of fly shop management while Joe Roope assumes the role of president of Loop Tackle, USA.

The shop offers a full complement of fly fishing gear, clothing, hand-tied flies, fly lines, leaders and accessories in all price ranges for men, women and children of all abilities.


Castaway also operates a guide service and international adventure travel business that offers guided trips locally, nationally and internationally to some of the world's premium fly fishing destinations.

"This is my greatest adventure so far, right after raising my son, Grayson, with my wife, Susie," Roope said.
