Fishing in Patagonia
Feb 2020
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.

Unforgettable experience

Excellent job by Benjamin. Put us on fish despite very windy conditions. Displayed genuine interest in us as clients as well as extreme patience especially with my wife who had never fly fished. Lunch spread spectacular. Highly recommend.

Hard work but worth it.
Feb 2019 • Solo
I fished with Ben for 2 days in February.I booked with Ben based on the reviews. I was staying in the Remota Hotel and they also offered fishing but it was very expensive plus no gear provided. I have fished in other parts of Patagonia and the hotel offering was out of line cost-wise. Ben picked me up very promptly from the hotel. Comfortable transport and all gear provided. The first day of fishing was very hard for me due to the wind and I had a couple of touches but no fish. Also the rod I was using broke at the tip. Second day was a total change. Very calm wind which is unusual. A diffrent river and a few takes plus a couple of browns on streamer pattern. In the afternoon we went to another spot for dry fly. Good sport and landed a couple of nice fish. The fshing changed and Ben checked the aquatic life and tied on an emerger. Instant success and another couple of nice fish. Lunch provided both days and Ben was in no rush to get home. Ben's English is excellent and enthusiasm and professionalism are high. Helpful tips to a self-taught flyfisher which were excellent.

A truly exceptional Patagonian fishing experience.
Jan 2019 • Couples
My wife and I are active travelers doing activities like fly-fishing, hiking and birding, that bring us to visit some of the nicest natural places in the world. Ben Vial just did that for us. We have been fishing in Canada, the Caribbean, Louisiana, Florida and many places in Patagonia, but the place where Ben took us is surely one of the nicest places we have fished. We visited a private Estancia that has everything: The real mood and soul of Patagonia, a fantastic scenery with the mountains of Torres del Paine in the background and the hard-to-beat feeling that you are the only ones fishing there. In addition to this, Ben truly cares about providing you a nice fishing experience and getting few big brown trouts on your line is certainly a wonderful bonus on any fishing day. We did two days and the second day, I went alone with Ben because we had a wind blowing at 60 km per hour. Ben did the right thing by bringing me on the same river but in a canyon between two mountains. A totally different experience where the fishing becomes hunting. In the afternoon, I got few fishes on a dry fly with a strong blowing wind that makes you feel proud of yourself when you hook something. Ben is a very pleasant host and guide and his mid-day lunch is great. It is worth saying that his wife, Antonietta, is offering a very nice airbnb apartment near their house - a great package when put together. They are very welcoming people and make you feel more like friends rather than customers.

Fishing the Penitents river
Jan 2019 • Friends

This was a great fishing experience with the surrounding scenery beautiful crystal clear river and an excellent guide. I never touched a fly fishing rod before in my life but with Ben’s instruction I was casting accurately within a half hour. Both me and my friend caught two brown trout each and of considerable size.
Thanks Ben got a great day!

My wife and i fished with Ben in early 2018. The logistics all went to plan and Ben was able to adapt everything to help my pregnat wife also have a great day. The fishing was world class. lots of big aggressvie brown trough taking fles off the surface. There was not another sole on the river and the view of the Torres was spectacular.

I can not recommened Ben and his company enough. I have been lucky enough to fish with guides all around the world and this was equal to anything.

The Man. The Myth. The Legend. BEN!!!
Jan 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had an extra day Puerto Natales and wanted to fly fish before we stared the W. We looked up Ben, emailed him and he was free that day, so we booked a full day. He guided us on a private ranch and honestly we had chances on EVERY hole he had us work. In addition to the amazing fishing we were in a spot with a bunch of condors, flamingos and other wildlife. He provided and amazing lunch which was a welcome treat since we usually skip lunch when fishing in Colorado. Ben is an awesome down to earth guy and anyone would be lucky to hire him as a guide for the day! Thanks for an amazing trip Ben! #hooksetandheadshakes #setthehookbro #meetmyfriendben #wind #cast #cast #cast 😀

Best guide in Patagonia
Jan 2019 • Friends
My father and I were lucky enough to fish with Ben in January 2019. Having fished with guides all over, we can say that Ben is world class. He's patient, attentive, knowledgeable, and a great angler. He has access to awesome rivers with big fish and knows exactly how to fish each one. He we will work hard for you and genuinely enjoys doing it. The bottom line is book with Ben, you won't regret it!

Highly recommend- Perfect experience fishing in Southern Patagonia with Ben at Patagonia Lined
Dec 2018 • Friends
My wife surprised my son and me with a day fly fishing with Ben while staying at Tierra Patagonia (perfect hotel). Ben is very knowledgeable with just the right touch to help based on one’s casting abilities. Helpful without being intimidating.
We caught several nice browns on a beautiful private river that is the border between Chile and Argentina, and had a tasty shore lunch as well. This trip would be fun even if you do not fish. I highly recommend Ben and Patagonia Lines if you plan to fish in this area.
One of the few trips I hope to repeat-outstanding!
