Up north in the San Martin region, guests are housed in some of the regions finest and most authentic Argentine estancias, typically enor- mous private ranches that often have miles of famous fly fishing rivers winding through their property. Much of the fishing here is done by drifting a large variety of rivers daily and return- ing to the estancias in the evening, though there are also some classic smaller stream options. PRG North was among the first to offer high-end, multi-day float/camping trips on the remote and incredible Limay River tailwater, and these com- fortable adventures have become a highlight for many anglers each season.

earth, this is a very attractive feature.
