Guess Kirk's Destination ...


I'm going on a trip soon.  But can you guess where? 

The photo above is a sampler of the fly selection I'm bringing, thanks to Brian Schmidt, our "Fly of the Month" guru from Umpqua Feather Merchants.  So that alone should tell you I'll be chasing fish that are pretty aggressive.  In fact, I'd say this is the "golden age" for this particular species.

Need more hints?  Well, okay.  I'm not bringing any long johns on this trip.  I will bring plenty of bug spray.

I'll be out of the country.  Not in Argentina... but I will be speaking Spanish.  I'm doing a story for the magazine.  It's the "dry season" where I'm going (a relative term)... it shouldn't be salty, but I'm still bringing "stingray guards."   Hmmmm....

Tell you what, I'll send an "Angling Trade" baseball cap to the first person who can tell me exactly where I'm going and what I'll be chasing.  Last hint, you likely haven't read much about this one before.  (No help from those few of you who know what I'm up to... Tim... Joey... Bri...)

Good luck to you... and please wish me some positive mojo also, if you'd be so kind!
