The Chilean Lake District offers spots that represent a paradise for anglers. They can be accessed on foot, by land or even by plane. Anything goes to find the great fish.
It is hard to put fly-fishing into words. One may attempt to tell others about it but it is, and must always be, a personal experience. Wading a river, thinking about where the trout may be hiding, seeing a large salmon go upstream, realising that they are eating and waiting for the right moment to cast the fly accurately is part of the fly-casting phylosophy. A kind of phylosophy that earns fans year after year in our beautiful Chilean Patagonia and manages to attract fans from all latitudes in the planet.
Huge Lake Llanquihue, Lake Todos los Santos, Lake Rupanco and each of the rivers which start or end there, in addition to the streams and tributaries of each of these basins, turn this area into a real oasis for sport fishing.
National Parks like Vicente Perez Rosales, Puyehue, Alerce Andino, Hornopiren and Pumalín contribute with their leafy vegetation which includes hundreds of species and life aspects hard to imagine somewhere else.
