The art of fly fishing in Bariloche

During the last years, Bariloche has established itself as a world tourist center. Many tourists from all over the world come in winter, attracted by its ski resorts and its first class hotels. The magical city of Bariloche, was built around Lake Nahuel Huapi, it has a view that transmits calm and natural beauty. In Bariloche, the strength of the Andes mountains and the beauty of the Patagonian rivers are combined. But this southern outback really shows its complete beauty when the snow melts and the colors of summer emerge. At this time the fish abound in the melting rivers and are a fascinating invitation to the sport of fly fishing.

At Outfitters Patagonia we know every corner of the wonderful Patagonian rivers and we learned which are the best places for fly fishing. That is why we will teach you in detail the tricks of this ancient art and the adaptations that you need to know in these waters.
