The 15,000 acre Estancia rests in the habitat of the red fox (zorro), the namesake of the Estancia. An abundance of condors, ragles, a myriad of other birds, and unexplored brown trout entice flyfishers and bird watchers to follow the trail of the red fox.

Your guide helps you flyfish for brown trout on two rivers and on a 15 mile spring creek with browns up to an astonishing 12 pounds, all within the Estancia's private boundaries.
