The world's largest sea trout sea-run browns are found in the rivers of Tierra del Fuego, far South America's "Land of Fire." The most renowned of these rivers is Argentina's Rio Grande. The river's fish average nine pounds, one in five is over 15 pounds, and one in 50 will weigh between 20 and 25 pounds. In March of 2008, a fish estimated at 41.5 pounds was caught and is known to be one of the largest brown trout taken on a fly. • • • Estancia Maria Behety fishing is, arguably, the best on the Rio Grande. The experience is highlighted by a diversity of water and sea trout angling challenges not available on other, more restrictive Rio Grande properties. Their talented, native, spey-savvy guides have a dawn-to-dark work ethic and rank among the best in Argentina.
