Where do I begin! Benjamin is so knowledgeable and takes the time to improve your skills while also being such enjoyable company! It was so nice to go with someone who knows the area and culture and can answer all of your questions ( I had a lot) about the country/area/fly fishing in Patagonia. He took care of everything, I didn’t need to worry about a thing and he was very accommodating. To be able to fly fish with the spectacular national park as a view was amazing. You really immerse in the nature of the area. Benjamin also knows the spots where it’s going to be quiet and not crowded which was really nice. Off the beaten path which is sure to mean an adventure! Once improving with some of the tips he taught me I caught a good sized trout right away! I have experience fly fishing which was helpful but no matter your experience he’ll help you out. Highly recommend if you want to experience Patagonia up close and personal with an amazing guide!

I took the opportunity to have a days fly fishing at the end of a motorcycle tour of Patagonia and chose Patagonia Line who are based in Puerto Natales where the tour finished. I'm no expert although Ben was extremely encouraging and put me right on the fish, I had the most amazing end to a fantastic trip. I would highly recommend Patagonia Line and Ben who has an intimate knowledge of his local rivers, a true expert and a great guy. Thank you Ben

Ben Vial was a truly wonderful guide. In our four days of fishing with him he took us to three different rivers and lake Baguales. We caught plenty of brown trout, the biggest being about 7/8 Lbs. Lake Baguales was all sight fishing which was very exciting. Ben provided all the gear including waders, boots, rods, flies etc.
Should you be thinking of fly fishing in Patagonia I could not recommend Ben more highly. Passionate and very knowledgable about his sport and a very charming person.

If you are going to Patagonia and looking to fly fish near or out of Puerto Natales, just book with Ben, period. First, he’s very responsive with all communications leading up to the trip. Always gets back to you within a day. As a guide he’s passionate about fishing and a true fly fisherman. He really just wants you to be successful and have an amazing day of fishing. Extremely knowledgeable about the region and it’s waters. Would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone. One of the best days I’ve ever had fly fishing!

Ben took my son and me out for a great fly fishing trip. He is a great communicator, answers emails and texts. He supplied all the waders, boots, reels, and flies. He is a great technician and teacher. I was a novice and was casting and caught multiple brown trout, my son told me Ben was far more professional and helpful than any guide he had used in the US. We both were catching multiple fish. He provided a delicious lunch. I would have no hesitency recommending Ben as a guide.

My husband and I had an amazing time fly fishing with Ben! I am a total beginner and caught 2 fish, my husband caught 5. Ben was extremely helpful, patient and passionate about fishing. He packed a delicious lunch that we enjoyed by the river. It was one of our favorite days while in Patagonia. Highly recommend!

We booked 2 days fishing with Ben. One was a half day, the other a whole day. Could not have been a better choice to go with Ben. I caught my first fish with a fly (actually caught 4 total) and my husband caught 8 on the day we hiked to the lake to fish. All of the fish were at least 22 inches. Ben speaks English very well and is also gave us some excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Torres Del Paine and Puerto Natales.

We hiked in 4 KM with Ben and it was not anything he did not make it out to be. Once we made it to the top we immediately started rigging rods and fishing. Withing 10 minutes we had seen multiple brown trout and had 2 landed. Throughout the day I expect we caught 20+ 20" fish and had an unbelievable time. I have already recommended Ben to multiple people since I've been back in the states. The cabin we stayed in was fantastic as well.

We had a wonderful time fishing with Ben, it was easily one of the top memories from our trip. Ben took the five of us fly fishing and we all caught multiple beautiful brown trout surrounded by some of the most wonderful remote landscape. When I make it back to Puerto Natales again I would call Ben up without hesitation. Great water access, great fish and a great lunch! Thanks again Ben!

I have been fly fishing for twenty years, all over the world and Ben is one of the best guides I have ever fished with. It's not just about the fish with Ben it's the experience,the time with friends and family. Its about those magical moments you remember for a life time. Ben fosters that experience with a gentlemans humility. He is a true ambassador to Chile ,the region, its conservation and its people.
Thank you Ben for helping me create memories of fishing with my son that I will cherish for a lifetime.
