Jack Trout gave an excellent experience to this 1st-time fly fisher. I got lucky and booked up with him in Puerto Varas, Chile, with only a few days notice. Great lesson/coaching (patient, very hard-working, sincere fellow, goes above & beyond), he also shares his depth of knowledgeable about Chilean/Latin American history. Cool dude, and I highly recommend him! Thanks, again,... More

At the last minute a group of us, all flyfishing novices, on a cruise ship wanted a guided flyfishing trip in southern Chile. Found Jack Trout online. He and his spouse responded promptly and we were able to set up a tailored trip for the next day. He and his guide met the 4 of us at the dock area... More

My son and I had a spectacular Christmas day on the water with Jack Trout, aided by his lovely wife, Carola, dropping us off and picking us up. Christmas!!! Jack is a consummate professional. We floated the ?? River near Puerto Varas and I caught a new fish for me, a Grisle, on streamers. He did a great job coaching... More

We spent three days fishing on the Lower Sacramento with Jack Trout and several of his guides. The guides were very knowledgable and helpful and I would highly recommend Jack Trout's service for anyone visiting the area. You don't have to be an experienced angler- They'll teach You!

Before writing this review, I carefully read the reviews of each ranking category so that my review wouldn't seem one sided, so here it goes: our one day guided fishing trip floating down the Rio Maullin out of Puerto Varas was a disappointment. It appears unless Jack Trout is actually there with you, you don't get the care of service... More
