July 29th, 2010 As the immediate effects of the BP oil spill begin to fade, the long term effects are still be determined. The cleanup will continue to generate new jobs in the Gulf Region for months (if not years) to come. However, the oil spill wasn’t the only news in the green economy - read on:

•New efforts on a renewable electricity standard: Some clean energy and climate advocates have shifted their sights to a scaled-back but still ambitious goal: passage of a national renewable electricity standard. Such a law would require utility companies to produce a set amount of electricity from renewable sources by a certain date, spurring the development of clean sources like wind and solar and probably lowering overall emissions nationally. Such a standard would drive additional employment in the wind and solar sectors.
•Wind farm ‘mega-project’ underway in Mojave Desert: the project is officially breaking ground in the Tehachapi Pass, a burgeoning hot spot for wind energy about 75 miles north of Los Angeles. When completed, Alta could produce three times as much energy as the country’s largest existing wind farm, analysts said. It’s slated to be done in the next decade and will create hundreds of construction and maintenance jobs.
•New Stirling engine solar heating and power system in Colorado: Cool Energy, of Boulder, Colorado, a developer of clean energy heat and power generating systems, today announced that Xcel Energy will be providing research and analytical support for the first planned pilot field installation of the SolarFlowÆ System in a commercial building located in Boulder, Colorado.
•Xtreme Power raises cash for renewable-energy storage: Xtreme Power, an Austin, Texas company which is commercializing battery technology originally developed for electric vehicles, is expected to announce on Tuesday that it has raised nearly $30 million to expand into utility energy storage.

Fly Fishing Patagonia! Guided Trips Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas, Esquel Chile..Big Trout & Discounted Trips!

Tres Piedras Has It All For The Finest Fishing Around

What's on everyones top Fly Fishing destination bucket list? If Patagonia isn't on your list something is seriously wrong with you. Whether you're a beginner, a worldwide angler or simply someone that enjoys traveling and fishing new waters, this is your place!

My last trip to Patagonia still resonates with me every time I talk to someone about my next big fishing trip or my favorite trip to date. What is it about fishing in one of premiere locations on Earth you ask? Could it be the gorgeous scenery? The remote fishing locations? Incredible wines or Argentina beef? Or perhaps one of the best outfitters around born and raised in this area as well as being fluent in English...I think I was won over my first day there and never wanted to leave.


Checkout some incredible shots
from past trips with Tres Piedras. Chile has countless bodies of water in the Lake District, as well as in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. We can guarantee that as you arrive to Patagonia, you will encounter many of the finest places for Fly Fishing in the country.

Indeed, in Patagonia there are many of those options for fly fishing: pristine and clear crystal waters in the rivers, lakes, streams, and lagoons. Most of these spots are accessible only by boat and have therefore remained relatively untouched by people.


Argentina is the fifth largest producer of wines in the world and the second largest in Latin America behind Chile so you can only imagine how good your lunch and dinner cocktails will be. Whether it's the savory Wine to cherish or the asado beef that you can't get enough of fireside, Tres Piedras can definitely customize each meal to meet your needs and having you saying wow a few 100x!


A lifetime fishing throughout the entire country, and ten years experience serving clients allow them to meet all expectations for fishing trips. A high return rate year after year and with only a few bookings left for the next season; contact us today to find out more! Be assured that we seek excellence in service, and try to acquaint our guests with Chilean Culture.

To satisfy the most common needs we have arranged four different kind of fishing packages, ranging from day trips to trips lasting up to a week. We also offer anglers the choice to take longer customized trips. Request complete information about prices, fishing, fishing destinations, species, equipment and all information you need to make a decision.

Whether you're looking for a few days away from the wife while down on vacation in Patagonia, a 7 day experience like no other in the far away reaches in search of huge trout, gorgeous scenery and solitude; or a package built to meet your needs, Tres Piedras has everything for you and your party!

The counties of Llanquihue are known for fly-fishing spots such as the Petrohue, Puelo, Cochamo and Maullín rivers, the Llanquihue, Rupanco and Todos Los Santos Lakes. All of these places are incredible for fly-fishing, however, there still remain hundreds of areas not yet discovered by the majority of fishers that are as good and sometimes better than the ones commonly known.

Contact me and I can pass along some great specials Tres Piedras has going on for the Upcoming season in Patagonia. With bookings filling up contact us today whether for more information, price specials or more about Tres Piedras. What's the worst that can happen, maybe you can start planning now for a trip of a lifetime!
