Trout Fishing - Other Activity Parque Nacional Puracé - Colombia

Your fly makes a soft plop as it lands in the crystalline water of Río Aguasilencio—Silent Water River—or one of its tributaries flowing near Coconuco and Paletará. A subtle breeze passes through the trees and grasses, sunlight dapples the landscape. Tonight you will be frying up those tender rainbow trout you catch here. But for now, it is the meditation of casting and waiting for the gentle tug on the line. Perhaps if you are in Paletará some last week of October, you can challenge Colombians at the annual rainbow trout fishing tournement.
