The long journey to Argentina/Tierra del Fuego is quite a challenge. All the hardships for just six days of fishing on the Rio Grande? No! Helmut Alleze, my angling buddy from Munich, has never been to the Jurassic Lake. You have to visit it at least once, so we decide to travel there before heading to the Rio Grande. The size and number of rainbows at Jurassic Lake are truly unique.
As expected, the journey is extremely strenuous once again: The drive from El Calafate to the lake still takes seven to eight hours and involves rough terrain. For the first two days, we have the lodge all to ourselves, and then two American couples and the Loop team from Sweden arrive.
