Fly Fishing in Patagonia
Fly fishing in Patagonia, Argentina is the finest trout fishing in the world. When you are fly fishing in Patagonia most days you will have your choice of methods. Dry flies, streamers or nymphs will all work. In many locations you will have a choice between wading or drifting and fishing big water or small. As a result fly fishing in Patagonia is the best fly fishing in the world. Also combine that with outgoing, friendly people, great lodging, food, and wine probably makes fly fishing in Patagonia a must on everyone’s bucket list. Finally, it will be the best fly fishing trip you have ever been on.
Hawkins Outfitters Hosted Trip
Hawkins Outfitters is hosting another fantastic trip to Argentine Patagonia. The dates are December 26 to January 7, 2019. You may fish all or part of this time.
Dry fly fishing in Patagonia is best in December/January. This is the best time to catch large rainbows, brook trout and browns on dry flies.
These are resident fish aggressively feeding on hatching dragonflies. Imagine a daytime hex hatch lasting all day. This is the best dry fly fishing I have ever experienced. Browns to 30 inches, rainbows and brookies to 25 inches are possible.
This is a minimum of 7 nights and 6 ½ days of fishing based out of Spring Creek Lodge near Junin de Los Andes. At this location we are surrounded by trout rivers and lakes that are world famous. Consequently we will access the Chimhuin, Malleo, Alumine, Lago Tromen and the Collen Cura and many other trout meccas.
At the lodge there are two bedroom, one-bath villas, a central dining room and all the amenities. Couples have the bills to themselves unless they want to share a villa with others. Most of all, your stay will be memorable and comfortable.
The cost for this trip is $5,275, all-inclusive except airfare and gratuities. You may add days on for $765/day.
You may adjust the dates arriving and departing whatever days you wish as long as you have a 7 night minimum. I’m arriving Dec 27th and departing January 7, 2019.
We have capacity for twelve anglers at Spring Creek Lodge. I currently have nine spots reserved on the trip. As a result I have just 3 spots at Spring Creek Lodge available. Therefore, if interested, get in touch with me quickly!
Andes Drifters are our hosts and guides during this trip. First of all Gustavo and his crew are consistently the best guides I’ve used in Patagonia. They will put us in position to catch many quality trout everyday. Dries, nymphs and streamers will all be employed to capture the trout of your dreams.
It is also probable, but not mandatory, that we will do one, overnight float trip where we camp on the river. Gustavo’s camps are a thing to behold. Private tents, hot showers, bathroom tents and lights strung in the trees gives you an idea of comforts provided. Finally, for added comfort the camping trip will not require that we move out of Spring Creek Lodge.
Having traveled and fished Patagonia extensively I believe this to be probably the finest venue and the best company to work with. As your host I will be happy to help with airlines, hotels and drivers in Buenos Aries, flies, etc. In addition here’s a packing list I’ve developed through the years. I’ll be fishing with you every day and will be happy to help then too. In addition to quality guides you will have a FFF Certified Fly Casting Instructor and the owner of Hawkins Outfitters at your disposal!
I look forward to you joining me on this trip of a lifetime.
