Working in northern Chile, my wife and I decided to visit southern Chile, hoping to see some blue whales, fly fishing and see the area. Blue whale watching didn't work out, whales just pass through the area, one needs to be very lucky or go to Argentina. For fishing I Emailed a few guides and only Jack responded, he got... More

My colleague and me visited Chile in March 2015 for a business trip and fortunately found time for a day’s fishing. We contacted Jack Trout and he arranged an English speaking guide for us (Mattias) on the River Maullin. Jack and his girlfriend Carola also arranged our accommodation in Puerto Varas as well as giving all tips and tricks for... More

Jack Trout is a well known and respected guide from Northern California who already has established a large and devoted clientele. After spending a week with Jack and his lovely wife Carola fishing rivers in Argentina and Chile I can say that his reputation is deserved. Fishing is still fishing, but if the trout are eating Jack knows where and... More

I have fished with Jack back in California and it was a hoot meeting up with him for a day in Chile. As always, Jack worked hard to maximize our experience, despite having to deal with a cruise ship schedule. He put my wife and I into many fish while not forgetting to give us a picture of the area... More

Have just had 3 days fishing in the Peurto Varas area with Jack and another of his guides Matteos they both worked very hard to put us onto fish in very difficult circumstances. On the first day it rained very hard but we still enjoyed the experience and caught trout with Matteos who looked after us very well. The second... More

My husband and I went out with Jack a few days ago. My husband had been out fly fishing twice before, but I had never held a fly rod. By the end of the day I had reeled in 2 fish, and had more on my line than I can remember. My husband wasn't quite as lucky, but Jack was... More

It was a great day fishing with Jack Trout in Puerto Montt, Chile! Jack provided a first class trip fishing on the Petrohue. Being an American from one of the best fisheries in the US, and having guided in Chile for many years, Jack has all the most up to date equipment and assortment of flies and techniques. He was...

Seven days of heaven. Jack and Carola met us at the bus terminal in Valdivia, Chile and loaded us in their Toyota Forerunner for a trip across the Andes to Argentina. Jack arranged an excellent Argentina guide for us. Superb results fishing on the Melleo, Alumine River. Wading on the Chimehuin R. in two 50 meter riffles we extracted over... More

Mattias treated us to a great day on the river. We are novice (at best) and Mattias gave us instruction throughout the float as well as treating us to great laughs along the way. We would love to get back to Chile and fish with Mattias or Jack. Jack handled all the logistics perfectly. Fish with them for a great... More
