While the ‘W’ sure can wreak havoc on a flyfishers cast, in some situations it’s your friend, acting as a corral and concentrating food in certain areas for the fish to key into. Check out this fun video of trout surfing waves in the Chilean Patagonia from TFFJ shutterbug Austin Trayser. Just make sure your hat’s on tight.
From Austin: “Brown trout surfing waves and eating insects in Patagonia, Chile. Very windy days push the bugs to the roughest part of the lake or “the gauntlet” as we like to call it. Enjoy!”
