We can also help you with gear and fly selections as well as help guide you through the airports.

Fly fishing in Patagonia has been described as being like fishing in Montana 100 years ago. Breathtaking scenery, crystal clear lakes and streams, Chilean hospitality…..all make fly fishing in Patagonia an incredible life experience. While filming a Walker's Cay Chronicles with us in 2005, legendary angler Flip Pallot claimed that the Patagonia region of Chile offered "The best fly fishing in the world".

The landscapes of the Chilean Patagonia are of an overwhelming natural beauty.  The mixture of the natural elements- wind, water and sun- continuously transform this magical landscape, giving it life…..and making this region a unique and unforgettable corner of the world.

Not to mention, Coyhaique Town, our base of operations, is also known as the “brown trout capitol of the world”. That’s where we come in……..

Patagonia Trouters is a family owned, local business in Coyhaique, Chile, that is now offering it’s expertise…………… gained from years of experience in the fly fishing and regional tourism business.

Nicolas Gonzalez….or Nico as we call him……. is a native of the Aysen Region, where he has been a professional fly fishing guide for more than 15 years now. Nicolas is a pure pleasure to fish with and knows the waters in the region as well as anybody. He is licensed by the regional guides association, is certified in First Aid, and also speaks perfect English! Flip Pallot, who fished with Nico for the filming of two “Walker’s Cay Chronicles”, declared Nico to be one of the best guides he had ever fished with! Nico also works with some of the best guides in the region when larger groups require.

Nico and his wife Ilsie have teamed up with Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters/Mad River Media and will be offering very exclusive, custom trips to the Patagonia Region of Chile. One of our specialties will be couples trips, offering a non-fishing alternative for those who wish to bring spouses or non-fishing others. This exciting “tour” package has been put together by the partners….but Brian and Nico also promise not to lose sight of why we are there…..trophy trout on dry flies! This season, as an added bonus, our clients will be housed at the incredible LaPasarela Lodge on the banks of the Simpson River, just outside of Coyhaique.
