Gear & Tackle
Recommended Fishing Equipment
Use 9-foot 4, 5, and 6-weight rods, reels with good disc drags, and pack a selection of floating lines and sink-tip setups (200-grain integrated tips work great). Back-up rods are always recommended.
Should have a minimum of 100 yards of backing and an adjustable drag
Weight-forward floating fly lines are the norm on the rivers we fish at Northern Patagonia. Whatever you fish in Montana or the Rockies will also work great on our waters.
We like WF lines by RIO, Airflo, and SA. Also bring an integrated sinking line for streamers fishing. These lines should have anywhere from 10 to 20 feet of 200- to 300-grain sinking tips.
For stillwaters, think full-sinking and clear intermediate lines for streamers in deeper water. And always include a floater for dries.
Waders and boots with felt soles to walk on the rivers while wading, wading jacket, light rain coat, fleece.
Leaders: 9-foot 1X for streamers and 9-foot 3X to 5X for dy flies. You will also need extra tippet spools from 5X to 1X
we recommend a typical Western trout fly selection for local rivers: hoppers, Chernobyl ants, stimulators, humpies and wulffs in #8-12; beadhead nymphs in #14-20, tan and olive caddis patterns in #14 – 16; mayfly parachutes, emergers, and cripples in #14-20; and a selection of streamers (conehead buggers, matukas, muddler minnows, and bunny leeches).
