Patagonia is a vast region made up of dramatically differing landscapes from arid high desert terrain to lush semi-temperate rain forests with countless rivers, spring creeks and lakes to explore with a fly rod in hand. Much like Alaska, it’s hard to fully appreciate and experience all that it has to offer on a single visit. We’ve found that one of the best ways to experience Patagonia is to combine, or “link”, stays at multiple lodges in different areas to give visitors a broader sense of the many angling and sightseeing opportunities within this must-see region.
Without question, the archipelago off South America’s southernmost tip known as Tierra del Fuego hosts the greatest returns of sea trout on the planet. On this featured trip anglers will visit World’s End Lodge on the intimate and relatively unknown Rio Irigoyen followed by a stay at Estancia Despedida on the world famous Rio Grande. The Rio Grande offers relatively large water great for spey casting and is known for high catch rates and large fish. The Irigoyen is arguably the world’s most unique sea-trout river with lots of woody structure, trees and technical single-hand fishing. This unique combination will show folks the full spectrum of Argentina’s finest sea-trout fishing.
