Worldwide Fly Fishing Destinations Best Suited for Couples
There are some fly fishing lodges that do a great job of catering to angling couples, families and non-fishing companions, and the staff here at The Fly Shop® are experts at creating angling holidays that can be a memorable combination of interests.
Not long after Bertha and I were married, she read an article in Forbes Magazine penned by my pal, Charles Gaines, titled, “The Finest Fishing Lodge in the World Period“. It extolled the virtues of Estancia Arroyo Verde in Argentina, the horseback riding in the pampas, the scenery, how the journey led through Buenos Aires and could incorporate bird watching, wine tasting and tango shows. And there was terrific trout fishing.
The trip truly was her idea and it happened years before she developed any interest in my sport. Fortunately it was the right place. It set a standard of expectation, a yardstick for the amenities she would tolerate, and sparked an interest in family fly fishing travel that has helped balance my angling passion with the vacation demands and interests of my wife and children. At the same time these trips strengthened our relationship and brought us together as a family.
Over the course of the last forty years, The Fly Shop® has helped create hundreds of holidays to fly fishing destinations that include variety and activities which expand the concept of vacation for couples who both fish, and anglers with non-fishing companions or kids who would rather watch paint dry than pick up a fly rod.
We’ve got places with amazing snorkeling, world-class bird watching, hiking, horseback riding for all skill levels, an cozy spots for the someone who just wants to curl up with a good book while their best friend is off catching fish.
The common denominators at all these getaways include breathtaking scenery, a variety of outdoor experiences, and fly fishing. Give us a call and we’ll find you some great fishing that can be combined with a line-up of non-angling activities that will make you a vacation planning hero.
