Yesterday, while doing a video shoot, our head guide Juan Pablo Marcheletti caught in new waters this great female fish that measured 38 inches and weighted 24 pounds!
The good thing was that we could fish new waters for this video because we opened up a new trail to go with our atv´s! So now we guess this new area will become popular pretty fast!!!
It´s all on video and it will be posted here soon!
Ayer, mientras filmábamos un video, nuestro guía Juan Pablo Marcheletti atrapó esta trucha hembra de 97 centímetros y casi 11 kilogramos!
Lo bueno fue que pudimos pescar en nuevas aguas para este video porque abrimos un nuevo camino para poder llegar en 4x4! Asique suponemos que esta área rápidamente se va a volver muy popular! Quedo todo registrado en video y pronto lo vamos a publicar!

We had a very special visit at our lodge Estancia Laguna Verde: want to know more about these two wonderful people?
Tim RajeffYou might have seen him. He's that magnetic guy hanging around the casting pond at the sport shows, the one throwing those incredibly long narrow loops of fly line
Tim Rajeff was Born in San Francisco in 1959 and grew up in a middle class working neighborhood about a mile and a half from the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club. Tim started fishing at the age of five. His early fishing education took him from trout fishing in Yosemite Valley to bass and carp fishing in the Russian River in California. Later Tim’s family took their annual vacations to the Rogue River near Medford Oregon and it is there that he started fly fishing. Tim was nine years old when he followed his brother and began to compete at the local and state level. In 1973 Tim worked with Frank and Gladys Gray at the Fenwick Fly Fishing School outside West Yellowstone Montana. During college he spent a summer on the Big Hole River in Montana working for the Complete Fly Fisher. He also spent two summers guiding in King Salmon Lodge Alaska. Tim’s most recent lodge effort was setting up operations on the Ponoi River on Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Tim and Katherine Hart, his partner, spent five summers there prior to settling in the Portland area in 1995.
Tim now leads groups of fly fishers to many unique destinations including Mongolia. When not fishing, Tim balanced his time between skiing, tennis, and tournament casting. The rivalry with his brother peaked in 1984 when Tim won the National combined Fly Casting Distance and Accuracy trophy and narrowly missed the grand all-round title as well. In doing so Tim broke the national distance record for the ten weight line class at 186 feet and the 15 foot rod class record at 265 feet. Tim’s international recognition came in 1984 in Lintz Austria where he captured the World’s Single Hand Fly Distance gold medal with a cast of 205 feet. Tim retired from competitive casting in 1985 and now is the owner of Rajeff Sports, the North American distributor of Aiflo fly lines and owns his own rod company, ECHO rods and reels. Tim now resides in Vancouver Washington with Katherine. Tim’s future calls for hosting more fly fishing and casting schools combined with an advanced casting book and video with his brother Steve.
Katherine Hart got her fishing start at an early age at her family home just outside Portland, Oregon where they had a small lake with bass and bluegill for her to practice on. Fishing became a full time and full circle pursuit over 20 years ago, starting in Alaska fishing lodges, where she met Tim Rajeff, then both traveled to Russia's Kola Peninsula in 1990 starting/building the Ponoi River Lodge with Tim and crew. They put together organized, built, and managed the Fly Fishing Lodge on the Ponoi River in Russia for 5 years. Katherine has been teaching with Tim Rajeff and the Rajeff Fly fishing School since the start of the school. She was the third women in the nation to have qualified as a Masters¹ Level Certified Fly Fishing Instructor by the Federation of Fly Fishers. When not fishing, teaching and bird watching in exotic places, you can find her keeping company with our chickens in the veggies garden or tending the Pinot Grapes in their backyard. Now she is back in the Pacific Northwest working at Rajeff Sports as the co-owner. Since 2001, they have their own line of Echo Rods and are distributors for various other Fly Fishing products.

Durante fines del Mes de Marzo del corriente año, Estancia Laguna Verde tuvo la suerte, una vez más, de contar con la presencia de nuestros amigos de España, Santiago, Jose, Paco y Antonio, contando también durante los primeros días de su estadía con el retorno de George Chang al lodge.
Hemos tenido la suerte de disfrutar con su grata presencia, su compañerismo, su buena onda, y sobre todo, su alto espíritu de pesca deportiva y caballerosidad, que no hace más que demostrar su grandeza como personas.
Muchas gracias amigos por honrarnos con su visita, y esperamos contar con su presencia en próximas temporadas, y poder compartir más hermosos momentos junto a uds.!!!
Compartimos aquí algunas de sus capturas, que dividiremos en dos entregas, puesto que fueron abundantes y de muy buena calidad, no sin antes, dejar sentado aquí sus palabras, las cuales agradecemos de todo corazón!!!
“Queremos dar nuestro máximo agradecimiento a todo el staff y dirección de Estancia Laguna Verde por hacernos pasar unos maravillosos días en el paraíso de las truchas arcoiris gigantes. Hemos pescado unas cuantas truchas de entre 6 y 7 kg. Unas cuantas las pescamos a mosca seca, entre ellas las mas grandes. Tenemos los brazos destrozados pero estamos muy felices. Captura y suelta, siempre, y mejor si es con mosca. Un fuerte abrazo”.
Santi, Jose, Paco y Antonio.
