The fishery is recently discovered and this is only the third year in operation. This is undoubtedly one of the last truly remote fisheries and I am lucky to be able to offer and share this trip with you.
I was treated like a king this entire trip and I am excited to come back with a group and show them what fishing these rivers is all about!
On arrival to Magic Waters I was astounded by the beautiful valley and the lodge nestled in the bottom of it.
This is definitely a trip with many unforgettable memories, full of great people, fishing and companionship—all things I’m grateful for.
The Rio Blanco and the valley looked and felt more beautiful than I remembered. Fishing in Chile, Patagonia is incredible and I can’t wait to fish it.
I’ve never felt so spoiled! Ok, so this place is so special to me because after lunch I got engaged, ya I said it engaged. The day was already the best day of my life and the proposal was just an amazing topper to the day and the trip!
Fishing was amazing since we were the only people on the entire section of river. I loved my first trip to Chile and I know I will be back again!
As we said our goodbyes at the airport I couldn’t help but think of the number of friends I couldn’t wait to send a few photos to once I got back into cell service. My brother was first on the list; I really just wanted to make him jealous!
The star of the show when fishing in Patagonia Chile, and a favorite bug to imitate and fish is the Chilean Cantaria Beetle also known as Darwin’s Beetle. If I was given the option to bring one fly to Patagonia it would be a black and red Fat Albert in a size 4.
