Who We Are

Patagonia Outfitters

Fly Fishing in Patagonia. A mythical destination with true stories of giant trout, virtually no pressure on the rivers, incredible landscapes, friendly people and, of course, some of the finest fly fishing in the world for browns and rainbows.

Patagonia Outfitters, led by fly fishing legend Jorge Trucco, has pioneered and perfected the guided trout experience in Argentina from scratch running world class customized fishing programs for well over four decades now. That was 1978 when we were the first to bring fishermen from abroad to experience Patagonia fly fishing. Since then, our goal has been to improve and refine the Patagonia fly fishing experience in order to make sure our clients will truly experience the trip of their dreams. Guests who have joined us for more than 20 years, including many celebrities, speak for the quality of our program.

From the very beginning we have been at the forefront of outfitting in this superb fly fishing region. We offer the finest English speaking guides, incredible lodges, service, equipment and, most importantly, access to the finest rivers in the region. Through rigorous scouting we open up new virgin fisheries that provide our clients with unique experiences on the river. So we are not just one lodge: we manage the finest lodges in Patagonia in 4 different watersheds, Tierra del Fuego included, in a territory covering over 10,000 square miles.

Having access to the best stretches of the best rivers in Patagonia, we can put you on the finest dry fly fishery with easy wading, float you down secluded stretches of some of Argentina’s greatest waters, or just hunt big trout if that’s your focus. We will customize your trip whether it’s 4 days or 2 weeks, whether you are a hard core angler or if you are traveling with your family and want to combine exciting trout fishing with great non fishing activities.

Come join for the experience
of a lifetime…

an experience that will bring you back again to join on the river and at the lodge for many years to come.
