A typical day of fly fishing in Patagonia starts with a healthy breakfast around 8:00 AM at the lodge or cabin in which you are staying.

After breakfast, you will be met by your guide and depart to the fishing area of your choice. You will fish one of the magnificent rivers in the area until around 2 - 3 PM, at which time you will enjoy a gourmet streamside lunch of the finest Argentine wines, meats, cheeses, olives, fruits and vegetables.

After a relaxing lunch, you can grab a quick siesta before departing for your afternoon fishing session. The fishing day ends sometime around 9:00 PM when you are transferred back to your cabin or lodge for a hot shower and cold drinks.

At approximately 10:30 PM you will enjoy a sumptuous dinner at the lodge. Dinner is served late in Argentina, allowing for much longer days on the water.

One thing to keep in mind is that all trips are custom designed and structured around your desires, expectations, the time of year and local fishing conditions. You can leave early or fish late, structuring your schedule however you would like. It's completely up to you!

Some waters are floated, some are waded and some a combination of the two depending on conditions and desires. Dry fly, streamer and spot nymphing (sight fishing) are the most common techniques used to fish Argentina's crystal clear waters. Larger flies and tippet sizes are the norm because of less fishing pressure and large fish. Most Argentine trout are in the 16 to 23-inch range with many exceeding 23 inches. Trout species, size and numbers vary depending on the watershed fished. Some waters produce numbers, some produce size-- and some produce both!
