They were small but I found them! A stunning stream that reminded a lot of a Cape Stream, although the massive wax palms in the background did make it rather unique. The Rio Quindio runs high, cold and strong from high in the Colombiam los Nevados National Park.

Their is a small local fishing community who use bamboo rods and bass worms to catch the ‘trucha’. A bit like Tenkara lure fishing!

The trout, although small, where fat and well conditioned.

I’ve organised some fishing about 15km downstream for tomorrow – I’m convinced I’ll find larger fish where the ‘Rio’ is wider and deeper and look forward to exploring some new water.
