About Us & Guides

Outfitters Patagonia

With us you will experience something more than just a fishing trip and get something more than just a fishing guide!

Established in 1997, “Outfitters Patagonia” is a Bariloche fishing guide service specializing in exceptional fly fishing adventures. We are based in San Carlos de Bariloche, the doorway to Patagonia.

Martin Freedman head guide and owner of “Outfitters Patagonia” is from Bariloche. He has more than 15 years of experience as a fly fishing guide in the National Parks. He is an honorary “Wildlife Ranger” and the Chief Director of the Fishing Rangers from all the northern part of Patagonia, director and teacher of the “Fly Fishing Guides Navigation River Programs” and a commission member of “Fly Fishing Guides Association” of Patagonia and Nahuel Huapi National Park. For several years in the past, Martin spent his off season time traveling the world as a rafting guide.

All members of the guide team are fully licensed fly fishing guides and are all from Argentina. From the moment they pick you up, they will be your hosts, guides, translators, drivers, cooks, and most importantly, your friends. We believe we have one of the best guide crews in Patagonia!

  • Rafting guide class III - License provided by the Argentinean Navy
  • Fly Fishing Guide for Lanin and Nahuel Huapi National Parks

A good guide can be the difference between a decent trip and the trip of a lifetime. More than their extensive knowledge, experience, and mastery of fishing, our guides are a close group of friends who have traveled, fished, and shared part of their lives together for many years. So...they really are the perfect team to offer you an outstanding adventure!

Our mission is to provide the best Bariloche fishing guide service available to our guests. We are only satisfied when our clients leave with the feeling that their expectations have been met or exceeded and we believe that personal attention to details is the key to a successful trip.

Boats and Equipment Offered. We use “Hy-side Katarafts” when floating, with swivel seats, anchor systems, and dry storage. These boats were designed specifically for fly fishing and are a pleasure to fish from. Each team of guides maintains contact throughout the day with hand-held radios for communication when we are in the most remote locations. We also provide back up rods, reels, lines, waders, boots, etc. Contact Us! and let us know what you need. We continuously update our equipment and feel that it is a crucial part of our operation. Comfort and Safety are our highest priority!

Martin Freedman and his guide staff are excited to show you all that Patagonia trout fishing has to offer. Please contact us and we'll be happy to work with you on your next fly fishing vacation.
