BESPOKE FLY
FISHING TRIPS

Let us create your personalised itinerary for your fly fishing trip of a lifetime, built entirely around your preferences.

No two Fish Patagonia trips are the same.

Northern Patagonia is the fisherman’s playground of dreams, and nobody knows it better than us. Our team have literally grown up fishing these waters, and have worked in the local lodges and estancias guiding international guests since they were teenagers.

We design every group’s trip from the ground up. You tell us what kind of fishing you’re looking for, your experience levels (all are more than welcome, from beginner to seasoned pro), how long a trip you’d like and what kind of accommodation you prefer. Then we do the rest. Why not contact us now to tell us about your dream visit?

Pick your waters.

From our base in San Martín de los Andes, we have access to a truly exceptional range of rivers and lakes to choose from. The fishing is varied, bountiful and always exciting.

You can tell us exactly where and what you’d like to fish if you already know the area, or, if you’ve never been here, we can come up with some options for you to ensure you get a taste of a bit of everything. If it’s your very first fishing trip, even better: we know where’s best for beginners to get you thoroughly hooked on the sport (and Patagonia).

We also make sure we match every guest up with the best guide for them. We know that both fishing styles and personalities are equally important to guarantee a great day on the water, so we make sure we pair you with the guide who’s most likely to give you the best day possible.

Having said that, we’re also equally happy getting our feet wet wading, especially in smaller rivers.

On the lakes we generally use motor boats to cover the water quickly, although we do fish a couple of areas which can be accessed by row boat only.

The fun doesn’t end on the water…

The lodges we work with are some of the very best in the world, and no two are the same. You can visit a range of different lodges for a few days at a time to get a flavour of what each has to offer, or head to one place to spend your full trip really getting to know it intimately.

For groups of up to 10 people looking for a private, exclusive experience, our very own Casa Quilquihue offers the ultimate luxury riverside home from which to explore the local waterways.

Tipiliuke, Mamuil Malal and Quemquemtreu offer you the chance to stay on historic, working estancias, and experience some of the unique gaucho culture the area has to offer. Arroyo Verde and Estancia Tres Lagos offer incredible fishing in truly remote corners of Patagonia, while Tres Rios and River House are luxuriously modern smaller lodges with stunning river views. San Huberto as an institution speaks for itself, operating as a family run lodge since 1976, and Collon Cura Lodge boasts incredible private access to its namesake river.

SAMPLE ITINERARIES

Although every trip we organise is totally customisable, set out below are some suggested templates to get you started. Most of our guests visit for around 7 days, but if you’re only in the area for a day’s fishing or want to organise something a little longer or shorter, we’re more than happy to accommodate that too. Just contact us to talk it through.
