The large number of specimens of different species will become a very attractive destination for anglers to the Río de la Plata. This output we found the taste with good gold and tarariras.
Love and hatred. Hate and love. An area where unforgettable fishing, with monumental toads mingle… take it or leave it! I still remember those existential complaints at the beginning of the nineties: “so much passion, both sites and have to just live beside the River less fly trap in the world”. Times that are sailing to compass, Internet was a secret of the Pentagon and fishing the bass of the fear was like going to the moon.
Much later I realized that those thoughts had more to do with joints, disabilities and, above all. with the ignorance of the rules of a hydric system similar to anything. First have to forget that the Rio de la Plata in a river: it is an estuary with astronomical tides overlapping with meteorological tides governed by the wind, and that according to quadrant and intensity generated a cambalache that defies the laws of physics. Also keep in mind that fills and empties “of life” in a cyclic manner. Bonanza corresponds to floods that bring nourished schools of the North, and improve reproductive efficiency and access to food. Then the system is depressed in part of course, but mostly by an irresponsible combination of pollution and overfishing. Before the dams flooding had almost every year, and today each half or full decade. If we are wise we administraríamos these benefits until the next flood, but as we are just humans quickly we raze everything and the silver is transformed into a wasteland Lakes indefinitely. And in the case of fishing fly even worse…
Heading to the estuary
This summer waited me two good news, a full of life silver and know unthinkable recesses of the hand of Hernán Hiralde. A young Guide, aged just 22, a “search” filled with polenta and with a look of x-ray, which jumped the tab to fly in the estuary in a way seldom seen.
The scheduled day came and we share boats with two other friends and passionate anglers: Leandro of Corso and Alejandro Oli Olivieri. The bad news, now dirty water by the Cordilleran sediments carried by the Bermejo and the Pilcomayo, and a high silver after two previous days of persistent Southeast. Good, that day would have a soft breeze from the Northeast that would lead to a firm downspout and numerous doraderas slides. We started very relaxed at neuralgic points of the first section of the Delta; without success, we put bow to a series of new fishing vessels in the vicinity of the Islands Oyarbide and Martín García. The first muddy, and the sandy second with granite outcrops that make navigation dangerous. This labyrinth of channels and banks were created or changed dramatically with the sediments carried by the last flood. Lost sites or some obvious, where according to Hernán “only walk the biguases”.
The day began with something that very rarely rioplatenses fishermen do: get off thick and provided no fears. Always shuffling with care and assisted by a cane by the abundance of stripes. Our initial goal was the thick and tough rioplatenses trahiras. If in a river that flows in one direction only a variation of 10 or 20 cm impacts your fishing, imagine an estuary that changes of address and its level varies one meter four times a day. Almost in complete safety the Hoplias harder to fly. Instead of recklessness which the tararira shows gaps where it is predatory butt, the silver is in the middle of the food chain and the concern of not be eaten more than to the eat. High water mean Golden or palometones patrolling, conditions in that they get well deep between Cattail and camalotales out of our reach. With the taste and smell of a bait, it is possible to make them leave, but it is almost impossible to fly. In this mode the ideal conditions are the estuary good bass and the yuyal dry, that the leave amontonaditas in the trenches with tummy resting on mud.
My companions began with 6 teams, float and streamers of golden light. In my case I chose a cane 4, line WF – 5 F and a Clouser Minnow dark craft fur, in no. 1/0 hooks, well fine wire to improve the Dunk (the same as those used for rubber worms). These inverted streamers are ideal for scratching the bottom, and to stimulate shy specimens who are unreconciled to surface in murky waters.
For the taste of Hernan was still too much water, but the stars lined up and offered us an uncommon delicatessen: tarariras and doradillos at the same time and space. To the doradillos we detected them by their attacks or stelae on patrol, slapping them flies over as a Minnow in flight.
In such small areas are taken at most two or three, then walk, or navigate to other fisheries. As the Bank was drying the tarariras encouraged are more, especially those skates macetonas of 2-3 kg. Crocodiles of subtle pique, as camiseteando the fly, and that once riveted destroyed the surface with jumping, tail and atropelladas bestial. The attacks varied according to the visited area: while some were immediate, in others (the more) had to work the area well. With the Río de la Plata tararira, “throw and go” does not work: persisting in the smallness of a hot area is essential, and the 3 or 4 meters makes a tremendous difference. My staff is: “the shot between 1 and 5, do not perceive anything.” Between 5 and 10, think that there is something there. Between 10 and 15, growing nuisance. And between 15 and 20, already fed up, they impose their law to dentellazos”.
After lunch and get the thermostat immersed up to the neck, went fishing for dorados on the rocks of the Uruguayan coast. And as I like most, Hernan chose to test these structures of anchored in a political maneuver perfected recently as influence of the great Wahoo Dalle Nogare. This allows styling stone surgically, varying speeds and angles at the presentation of the tape drives.
Here we change floating lines by shootings of sinking, to sweep well fine different levels of the water column. The size of the Golden increased further, with numerous examples of average 2 kg, a couple who scratched the 4 kg and a giant of 5 kg that Oli broke him in the first jump. The silver it is hot in a year that will surely be unforgettable for the fly. To take advantage of it!
