-When is the best time to come and fish Patagonia?
The best time to come and fish with us starts in the spring (November 15) just as the rivers are coming alive and will continue on through our Andean summer until the leaves start to change color in late fall (May 7). Our seasons are very similar to South Western Montana and the equivalent of (May-October) in the Rocky Mountains.
-How long does it take to get to your operation from the United States?
It generally takes around 20 hours in total to get to our operation in Southern Patagonia Argentina and is a hassle free experience. It takes just as long to get to Alaska or Canada from the United States and is an easy flight to obtain access to some outstanding trout fishing.
-How many days in total is a trip to Patagonia for a week of fly fishing?
Eleven. You will spend the first two days in transit to Patagonia and then you will enjoy seven nights and six days of fly fishing and on the morning of day ten you will catch a flight to Buenos Aires and fly that evening home to the United States arriving to your destination in the morning/afternoon of day eleven.
-What type of fish will we be catching while fly fishing in Patagonia?
You will have the opportunity to cast at over seven different species of fish including Grande River Rainbows, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Chinook Salmon, and Pacific Salmon.
-What type of fishing will we be doing?
One of the main types of fishing that we employ is dry fly fishing on the surface while drifting in one of our custom designed fly fishing rafts or catarafts. Patagonia, Argentina harbors over thirteen different species of terrestrial beetles that provide a rich biodiversity of insects. We also employ streamer techniques and love to hunt the biggest fish in the river.
Our guides are well trained in trophy hunting and will provide you with expert instruction and custom hand tied streamers to entice the fish of a lifetime. We also like too swing flies on spey rods in the fall for migrating Sea Run Brown Trout, Chinook Salmon, and Pacific salmon and are well versed in spey casting techniques for sea run fish.
-Is Argentina a safe country to travel in?
Yes. Argentina is one of the safest countries to visit in South America. Argentina has a democratic government and boasts one of the highest growth rates in the tourism industry in the world. Argentineans welcome foreign visitors to their country with open arms and are some of most hospitable and giving people around. You will embrace their warm smile, colorful culture, and their fantastic wines while enjoying the pace and lifestyle of their wonderful country.
-What language do they speak in Argentina?
Spanish. Though in some parts of Argentina they do speak the native Mapuche Indian language (Mapudungun) but only 2% of the population of Argentina has Native Mapuche blood therefore it is not used often in conversational Spanish in Argentina.
-What type of reptiles or mammals do you have in Argentina? Is it like Alaska?
One of the highlights of a trip to Patagonia, Argentina is the lack of dangerous animals. It is the complete opposite of Alaska. It is best described as the wilderness with no teeth. There are no bears that are sharing the river with you, we don’t have giant snakes or scorpions that will eat you alive, no moose to stomp you on your favorite gravel bar, and no white socks, no see um’s, or black flies that will cause bodily harm. We simply have pristine free flowing rivers that are teeming with trout that are completely addicted to eating large terrestrial dry fly’s on the surface. Sound good. Yeah, we agree with you and why we have chosen to build our operation in such a special part of the world.
