My favorite flies for Patagonia

Working as a fishing guide for many years in Chilean Patagonia, I have had experience with literally hundreds of fly patterns

My Dear Yelcho River

Two weeks ago, I returned to my favorite region, the Yelcho River and lake basin. This is an extraordinary

Not too far away

For most fishermen, there exists the idea that to fish for big trout you have to travel far. Most fishermen believe you need to seek out remote places very inaccessible, where only a lucky few can ever hope to arrive.

The dream of Patagonia. I have experience of flyfishing 30years and I did fly fish all over the world, but it was a long time dream for me to do fly fish in Patagonia.Chile & Argentina are the

most far off country, the otherside of the earth from Japan.
Puerto Montt and Coyhaique area which I went with Eduardo and Nino who got to know by an introduction of my friend since 2001 presented splendid scenery and fishing.What I should mention specially in Puerto Montt area is Rio Petrohue flowing through the base of Osorno volcano. Lakes of innumberable rank and rivers of abundant water quantity are their features and untouched fishing spots still exits in Coyhaique area.
The last two years with Francisco I went to Chaiten area that has a lot of fishing ground and the fishing which used big dries in midsummer at typical Lago Yelcho will excite like as burst a heart. Lago Yelcho is known by can catch a supersized rainbow and browns. This big lake which there is the place that is not far from Chaiten. We can see fishes more than 10lb preying on dragonfly in the air. One place of other littleknown spot is a small lake in Parque Pumalin, but I caught more than 30 rainbow trout in a day. How surprisingly, they all were completely more than 3lb, many up to 5 lbs.
Patagonia which can cover wide fishing from a beginner to an expert and a streamer with spey rod to a dry fly with singlehand rod is the LAST PARADISE for Fly Fishing. This next season I'm going back at Patagonia with Francisco once again.
