More than a year ago, he went to a booth at a Safaris Club International (SCI), and told that he wanted to make “the trip of his life” for trout fishing, in Argentina; Here he met Marcelo, recommended also some Dove shooting and Dorado fishing, which made it even more Interesting.
One year later, these last days, we have the wonderful experience to host Mr. Ronald Dale Moon, “Ron Moon“, as he names himself.
It has been a extended trip for him, arriving in Argentina March 13th and left on the 25th; he spent a night in Buenos Aires, Next day we met him at the Hotel and transfer him to Aeroparque, to catch his flight to Bariloche, Patagonia area, south of Argentina, where he started his trout fishing experience.
On the 19th, headed to the northeast of Argentina, to Parana airport, Entre Rios Province; after a last minute change on the airlines, Aerolineas Argentinas to LATAM, the baggage only arrived at Buenos Aires, but not to Parana; it then arrived on the third day, after having made the claim on the missing bags. Meanwhile he used some of the lodge’s clothes!
In Parana Airport we welcomed him, and drove back to the Lodge, to enjoy a Dove & Pigeon hunt, together with Dorado fishing experience.
During his stay, he did Dorado Fishing in the morning, which he really enjoyed doing; the conditions on the Parana River did not allow to fly fish, so after several attempts, decided to try live bait fishing, as recommended by Omar and Charlie, and ended in a great success!
After delicious and abundant lunches at Estancia Cortaderas, it was time to hunt in the afternoons; Dove shooting most of the afternoon. There were so many doves it was difficult to focus on any and pick which one would be the best shot; anyway, he was able to get a great percentage of almost 65% accuracy, which is more than good.
On an afternoon a Pigeon shoot, was organized which was not in the original plans but made it even a greater trip. His own words were : “…. just had a marvelous pigeon hunt this afternoon, I actually could continue shooting but I had enough, so much fun; it’s time for cerveza..”
Back at the lodge in the afternoons with beautiful sunsets, nothing better than enjoying, at the bar, great drinks and appetizers, such as delicious Dove Breasts or even Dorado, which had been brought back to the lodge, together with all kind of appetizers prepared by our chef.
The facilities of the lodge, services, attention, amenities, and many other small details, make Estancia Cortaderas the ideal place also for women, so his next trip will be together with his girlfriend and other friendly couples.
Ending this marvelous trip, on the 24th, Back to Buenos Aires, overnight at the same hotel, on the 25th, flight back home. After 12 days in Argentina, on a great shooting and fishing experience.
“This trip exceeded my expectations, it is really the trip of my life”
Thank you for choosing us, and we are looking forward to host you and friends in a near future!
