Another spectacular season at Patagonian BaseCamp
Another season has ended in wonderful fashion, with fantastic fishing and beautiful weather...
A phenomenal season of fishing has come to a close at The Patagonian BaseCamp in remote Chile. With the exception of two or three weeks, the sometimes unpredictable weather of the region has been great and the rivers in fine condition. Due to low rainfall throughout, the team were forced to be creative with the fishing programmes which resulted in the discovery of some new and incredible fisheries. The Yelcho river system was one such revelation, and although the guides had fished it before they perhaps underestimated how good it could be. It proved itself to be very productive, a strong contender which is definitely going to be a fixture in future programmes.
This season saw the launch of the PatagoniaOne programme, the cross-border extension of the original BaseCamp programme. Five groups ventured into Argentina after fishing in Chile and enjoyed the fantastic diversity of this exploratory trip. Enquiries are already being taken for next year so do not miss the opportunity to be able to cast a line from both sides of the Andes.
There has never been a better time to travel to Chile and Argentina. Next season will run from early December at The Patagonian BaseCamp. Charlie White has been fortunate enough to sample the superb fishing on offer so please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss it.
Isobel S with one of 9 fish she and her husband Ian, landed on just one session on the Rio Grande. A great session for sure but made slightly more epic when you are told that they were sharing a rod and that the combined weight of those 9 sea trout was 122lbs. Just an astonishing fishery.
What do you want from a fishing destination?
We are all different but if you want reliability, big fish, excellent guides, supremely comfortable lodges, a week of varied fishing techniques and fabulous food and drink then you really shouldn’t look any further than the Maria Behety fishing on the Rio Grande in Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina.
One of the great pleasures of working in the travel business is when you speak to returning clients who have had a fishing holiday that has surpassed all their expectations. It is really rewarding to hear the genuine enthusiasm in their voices as they tell you all about it. I recently spoke to clients who just returned from ten days of fishing the rivers and lakes from Patagonian BaseCamp in Chile.
