9 Rewards for Booking Early (One being a free rod)

In our last newsletter we discussed a few exciting last minute trip ideas that offered great fishing during the less traveled months of March & April.  Last minute trips are for anglers who can’t book early, don’t have a long list of requirements or just have a wild hair to tame.  However, unless you are lucky, a last minute trip to one of our destinations during the high travel months of December -February may require you to compromise on dates, location, trip length, # of travelers, etc.

Unfortunately, planning a trip with us 6 months out is still considered late.  In fact, unless you aim to travel during our shoulder seasons you are n minute.  For the best booking and trip experience, start planning 12 or more months in advance, especially if you require specific parameters and wish to travel between December and February.

When you book 12 months out for any month of the season, you‘ll be rewarded with:

  1. Your Preferred Travel Dates
  2. Your Friends/Family Joining You
  3. Availability at the best Lodges/Outfitters
  4. Lower Airfare
  5. Accommodated Special Request
  6. Stress Free Planning and No Compromises
  7. Paying Slowly Over Time
  8. Time to thoroughly prepare and Practice with Your New Rod!
  9. A Brand New TFO Premium Fly Rod !

Whether you book last minute or 2 years in advance we have the knowledge and network to put you in a great spot with prime fishing.  But when possible, reward yourself with the benefits of booking early. And get a free rod on us to boot!

(One free rod will be mailed to anglers who book a 7 night trip between Jan 1 – Apr 31, 2021. Surcharge applied to some models)

Expedition/ Lodge Combo 

Sleep under the southern cross for a few nights and then pamper yourself at a cozy lodge – and of course fish blue ribbon streams by day. This is our most popular trout fishing trip in Patagonia because it mixes a little bit of adventure with luxury. On the Wilderness Fishig Expedition portion we will fish the Chimehuín, Caleufu or Collon Cura Rivers – whichever is fishing the best when you get there. At the end of each day on the float, you’ll arrive into a deluxe camp already set up.  Wine and appetizers waiting.  To finish out the week, you’ll fish a variety of rivers close by the lodge

3 Rivers Trout Fishing Expedition
Trout fishing northern Patagonia
 (100% Dry Flies!)

This is a popular trip featuring three Big Brown Trout rivers, the Chime, Collon and lower Limay.  December through early February on these waters is a good time to put away the streamer box and pull out those ugly foam bugs with all the legs.  From a nice hotel in San Martin, we’ll fish the Chimehuín for a day, then spend 2 nights/2.5 days glamping on the Collon Cura River. The trip ends by targeting the 5-10lb migrating Brown Trout on the Lower Limay. There  spend 3 nights at an inn with private chef and fish 3.5 days on northern Patagonia’s #1 trophy trout river.

Length: 7 nights/6 days fishing
