Fly fishing - private guide

Very professional. Honest. Locations vary, but the one we went to was a private ranch with rivers, surrounded by mountains and WILD HORSES. So incredibly beautiful!

I asked Jorge to organize a fishing day for me and my 6 year old daughter. Not only was he extremely accomodating by dedicating his personal time (he picked me up at the hotel at 8:30 AM on January 1st), but he organized the perfect fishing day for both of us. I consider myself a beginner, and came back a... More

I had a great day of fly fishing with guides Max and Daniel from Calafate Fishing and fishing friends Gabriel from Argentina en Abriel from Brasil. Max and Daniel took us to Rio Pelque, a narrow river (width varied from 4 to 6 meter), 120km south of El Calafate. What a great river! I caught 15 beautiful brook trout, half... More

A brilliant fly fishing trip despite the wind on the Steppe! The guides were great company and the lunch provided was first class.

To keep it simple... they are extremely rude and they dont help you at all. They use nice fishing poles while they give you poles that can probably hold a 1lb fish max before breaking. They did not help at all.. they basically dropped us off.. and went to their own spot to do their own thing. I know quite... More

We did a full day trip. The first half was shared with two hapless young guys who had never fly fished before. I doubt they will again. After ten minutes intstruction they were let loose on the water and barely saw the "guide" again. We were fishing a barren stretch of the R.Rico in some cow paddock. The "guide" happily... More

Wonderful place to visit. We took the obligatory boat trip on Lake Argentina to view the multiple glaciers and had a delightful day. However we also took a private tour of the nearby national park and glacier and LOVED it. They have constructed metal walkways along the cliffs just across from the glacier and it was even more exciting than... More
