Sea-run brown trout were introduced to the rivers of Tierra del Fuego by in the 1930s. These fish grow big and strong by feeding on the rich food supply in the cold Atlantic waters. Then they return to the rivers of their birth to spawn, and fly fishers travel from around the world to catch these fish. Known for their acrobatic leaps, these sea-run browns will test the mettle of an angler . . . as well as their tackle. In this great video by Todd Moen of Catch Magazine, angler Gordon Armstrong lands a beast on the Argentinian stretch of the Rio Grande.
The videos in our Moment of Thrill series are meant to get your heart racing in anticipation of the start of the spring fly-fishing season. It’s been a long winter, at the end of a long year. What we all need now is to feel the tug of a fish peeling line off the reel!

Great Moment of Thrill! It has been a long winter without a good tug. Hoping to put that behind me and get the chance to travel again this season.
Don’t stop moments of thrill, I look forward to them and they are very inspiring. Thanks

What a great video. Everything was captured to perfection.
LOVE your Chill Moments, I’m an Orvis shopper too! Love especially the dog chills and the quietness of the videos! Makes my day!
Mesmerizing. I always look forward to the skills of the fishermen and women, the courage of the fish and the dignity with which they are gently handled (and, preferably, released).
