there is a saying that adventure travel is only adventurous after the fact. during the trip it is more like a day-long pain in the butt. sometimes fly fishing is like that. it is not until the last rays of the sun (or later for those madison river evenings) slip away that the day starts to become fishing stories. gathered with friends around a table of food and drink the eats become more epic, the flies smaller, the wind louder, the misses more painful and the mistakes become more hilarious. it is here in this moment that the memories are cast. and it is here in this place, at this time that you need a cold one, a fried one and one on a bun. or something like that.

It was a hot Quilmes.
So let's just say that the fishing was so good that you tamped down your hunger with a protein bar and now it is that nowhere time between a suitable late lunch and an early dinner - which in Argentina means 8:30. You have fished miles of the rio Pulmari and are now so hungry and so thirsty that you can no longer tie on another fly. What to do?
It's Camp Fatima to the rescue. It is an Argentinian camping spot where the caretakers will bring you a fresh loaf of bread, a litre of Quilmes (or 3), a little potted meat (picadilla) and a plastic lawn chair. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
