We had a perfect day with the guys from Calafate fishing and they were so friendly and helpful. I never tried fishing before and even though managed to catch 4 fish! I can recommend this trip to everybody who likes nature and to try new things.

A half day of good fun and experiences with Federico. I have fished with guides in Alaska, Cuba, and Cozumel recently and Federico ranks up there with the best. The fish weren't anything to write home about as far as size but a heck of a lot of fun, learning new techniques and strategies. Federico is very patient, enthusiastic and... More

Very professional. Honest. Locations vary, but the one we went to was a private ranch with rivers, surrounded by mountains and WILD HORSES. So incredibly beautiful!

I asked Jorge to organize a fishing day for me and my 6 year old daughter. Not only was he extremely accomodating by dedicating his personal time (he picked me up at the hotel at 8:30 AM on January 1st), but he organized the perfect fishing day for both of us. I consider myself a beginner, and came back a... More

Max and Daniel took us to Rio Pelque, a narrow river (width varied from 4 to 6 meter), 120km south of El Calafate. What a great river! I caught 15 beautiful brook trout, half... More

A brilliant fly fishing trip despite the wind on the Steppe! The guides were great company and the lunch provided was first class.

To keep it simple... they are extremely rude and they dont help you at all. They use nice fishing poles while they give you poles that can probably hold a 1lb fish max before breaking. They did not help at all.. they basically dropped us off.. and went to their own spot to do their own thing. I know quite... More

We did a full day trip. The first half was shared with two hapless young guys who had never fly fished before. I doubt they will again. After ten minutes intstruction they were let loose on the water and barely saw the "guide" again. We were fishing a barren stretch of the R.Rico in some cow paddock. The "guide" happily... More
