Argentina is the second largest country in South America (eighth largest country in the world by land area) and is divided into 23 federal provinces.

Its continental area is a whopping 1,068,302 sq mi and stretches between the Andes mountain range in the west and the southern Atlantic Ocean in the east and south. Argentina borders Paraguay and Bolivia to the north, Brazil and Uruguay to the northeast, and Chile to the west and south.

Buenos Aires (often called the “Paris of South America”) is the capital of Argentina, and is the country’s largest city with a population of close to 13 million.

Argentina is a land rich in culture, history, and adventure; strongly influenced by its mostly resettled European populous and has been a popular destination for sports since the turn of the 20th century.

Patagonia is an imaginary band covering southern Chile and Argentina, roughly 400,000 square miles in size, with the Andes Mountains forming the border between the two countries. The trout fishing in Argentina takes place in the south, roughly from the Neuquén River just above (39°S) through Tierra del Fuego (55°S) latitude. And extending east of the Andes, Patagonia includes the provinces of Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz, and Tierra del Fuego, as well as the southern tips of the provinces of Buenos Aires, Mendoza and La Pampa.

For the most part trout fishing in Argentina Patagonia takes place in 5 distinct provinces (Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz, and Tierra del Fuego.

Collectively, The Fly Shop’s travel staff has been fishing in Chile and Argentina for more than seventy years. We know the ropes, and can hook you up with the best Patagonia fishing. We led the charge into the great dyer valleys of southernmost Chile in the late 70’s and helped establish what are currently the most famous outfitters and lodges in that part of the world. Then, more than a decode ago The Fly Shop® was instrumental in developing what are now the finest lodges on Tierra del Fuego’s incomparable Rio Grande.
