Established in 1997 “Outfitters Patagonia” is a 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. I am an adventure guide and outfitter company since 1997. I became a guide because I love to be on the river and share what I know. I love to see others enjoying one of the best fly fishing on earth and surrounding by real nature of the National Park in Patagonia! I’m an honorary Wildlife Ranger and Fishing Rangers Chief from Patagonia, Rio NegroProvince. I’m the teacher director of the Fly Fishing Guides Navigation River Programs and co-founder since 1999 of the Fly Fishing Guides Association of Patagonia and NahuelHuapiNational Park”.
In its June 2013 edition “Trout & Salmon” magazine listed “Outfitters Patagonia” like the top fly fishing guide service in Bariloche Patagonia Argentina and it highlighted that we provide a truly personal experience to our anglers.
A good guide can be the difference between a decent trip and the trip of a lifetime. More than their extensive knowledge and experience, 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!
All the guide team is fully licensed and is all from Patagonia Argentina. They will be your hosts, translator, driver and most importantly will become your friend. We honestly believe we have the best guide crews in Patagonia!

Boats and Equipment Offered. We use Hy-Side Catarafts 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 and when we are in the most remote locations in case of emergencies we also carry 24hr a Satellite Phone to be connected no matter were we are and what we need. We also provide all necessary camping and Orvis fishing tackle as rods, reels, lines, waders, boots, etc at no charge. We continuously update our equipment and feel that it is a crucial part of our operation.
