Fly Fishing Rod

Guide´s tips by Federico Obejero – Professional Fishing Guide in the area since 2004.

We are located in the trout capital of Patagonia. Among the great rivers of the area, the Chimehuin River offers the largest water varieties and structures… deep pools, big riffles, long runs, side waters, islands, channels, spring creeks, willow pockets, boulders, tight insides, foam lines, eddies… all in one river… wading or floating…

The “Chime” has it all… prospecting dry fly fishing , matching the hatch, traditional nymphing, European nymphing, streamering… that’s why we use and recommend 9 to 9,5 feet rods for #4, #5 and #6 lines, mostly with floating lines, exceptionally sinking tip.

Big flies on windy days may require a #6 line rod… short casting on small waters may require a delicate #4… With this range of rod numbers you are well covered for any fishing situation down here.


If you enjoy Czech, Polish, French or Spanish nymphing, bring your gear, you will feel in paradise! On average, we are rigging with 9 ft. tapered leaders and tippets from 2x down to 5x (regular and fluorocarbon) depending on the occasion. Check our suggested fly list!

Tight lines and Fish on!!! - Fede
