HEADED TO THE SOUTHERN HEMI

HEADED TO THE SOUTHERN HEMI
Las Pampas, Chubut, Argentina

I had time to drop bags, wash clothes, download cards, charge batteries and repack. I’m headed south to Argentina and over the boarder to Chile. I’m looking forward to linking up with with my old friends and the gauchos. After every return trip I always wish I had more time to experience and explore this region. I feel fortunate that I am able to see just a small glimpse of it all.

This venture has many moving parts including the rivers, lakes, camp, photography and cinematography. Imagery and motion captured here will be used for various outlets including the lodge and for an upcoming work in progress. A conservation film with Travis Lowe titled Finding Fontinalis, showing in 2016. Stay tuned.

PATAGONIA CATALOG | SPRING 2015

PATAGONIA CATALOG | SPRING 2015
Las Pampas, Chubut, Argentina

I’m very excited to see an image in the new 2015 Patagonia catalog. This image was taken in one of my favorite places, Las Pampas in rural Argentina. We had hiked in a remote trail down to the river. It started out a blue bird day and by ends it was raining sideways. We stumbled on the old gauchos working the cattle. They wanted to chat, so we did, in the pouring rain. Here Oggy talks fishing with the locals. What an adventure!

On this particular trip the crew consisted of Patagonia’s Bart Bonime and Dexter Levandoski. An exploratory trip that has morphed into an upcoming conservation film with Travis Lowe titled Finding Fontinalis, showing in 2016. This was also the trip that sparked the idea on establishing the upcoming creation of “Fundacion Truchas Patagonia”. Stay tuned for more exciting stuff coming out of the Patagonia Fish camp.

CUBA | HOW ABOUT A HAM SANDWICH & JACK, SAY CHEESE

CUBA | HOW ABOUT A HAM SANDWICH AND JACK, SAY CHEESE
Jardines de la Reina, Cayo Largo, Havana | Cuba

Oh Cuba… what can I say about a place that Hemingway didn’t already say? A Ham sandwich, betcaha Hemingway didn’t mention a ham sandwich.  oh wait, he did. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, a ham sandwich is always an appropriate food in Cuba. That and a few more other odd things like funny money, cool old cars, ancient churches, talented artists and willing jacks can be found at any given time here! Did I mention the jacks crush Warpath crease flies on the surface?! Yes, yes, they do!

“It was considered a virtue not to talk unnecessarily at sea…”
― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

It was a thrilling few weeks in Cuba…now I’m repacking, headed to South America next week.
