The Schedule

     After a delightful breakfast, the morning will be spent learning the basics. They include; the reel and fly line, casting, how to handlBrown troute the rod and learning to tie important knots to assure you won't lose the fly or fish. Each new morning you will advance on a vital part of learning the art of fly fishing.

     In the afternoons, after a light lunch and perhaps a bit of siesta, your guide will take you out on the water to practice what you have learned and he will also show you different techniques of fly fishing. Being on the river is a lot different as compared to learning on the grass or a pond. You will be where the action is and with the guiding patience of your master guide, you will do some serious fishing.

     The early evening are usually presented with the evening hatch. The trout will surface the lakes and rivers jumping and gulping the flies that also will rise to the surface. At that time, what you learned about fly fishing during the day will be applied at fast motion.

Catch and Release

After the Fishing

     Fly fishing after the evening hatch are always looked forward to with an exquisite cuisine prepared by our chef and accompanied by some of the fine Argentine or Chilean wines followed by an artistic light desert. Relaxing and conversing with new friends or telling fish stories to your fly fishing partners leads to a pleasant rest with dreams of next days fishing adventure.
