    Bring plenty of flies!

    With the mothership being mobile no matter when you show up to fish you can expect the boat to be parked close to good fishing!

  2. Jay Dawson

    The Argentina fishing trip was fantastic! First time fishing for Golden Dorado and I will definitely go again. Staying on the boat was very cool, great staff, great food and great guides.

  3. Brett Callaway

    If you like throwing big flies at aggressive fish, this is as good as it gets. Three of the four days we fished in excess of 10 hours with action from the beginning of the day until the end. They pack a nice lunch for the days on the River – the food is all delicious and plentiful. One of the days we decided on a half day of fishing and had lunch at the mothership, which was an incredible full-service spread that you would find in a high-end restaurant.

There's a reason I keep booking this steelhead fishing trip!
Second time I’ve done this particular trip. The steelhead run was awesome! The food was even better than the first time, which is hard to imagine, and our guide is the best there is! If catching big fish is your thing I highly recommend booking through Outdoors International.

I expected big trout on this trip based on all the stories I've read over the years, and I was not disappointed! I broke my own personal best rainbow trout record at least SIX times on this trip, with the biggest being a 16 pound beauty.

I will be going again soon!
