Why should I fish with POF?

We believe that we can provide a first class service, guaranteeing not only good fishing, but also top notch service and organization. We are not a big commercial company, and we pride ourselves on creating unique trips for all of our guests. We wont let you down.

Which trip is right for me?
We choose your itineraries based on what you like most, your fishing skills, and available time. This area has many options, and choosing rivers depending on your interests are easy to combine. We are happy to answer all your questions - let us help you.
How many days is the average trip?
We recommend staying a full week fishing since you have come from so far, but we can be flexible and make the trip shorter, or up to ten days of fishing.
When is the best time to be there?
All of the rivers are at their best during different parts of the season, so depending on your availability, we will help you pick the lodges and rivers that suit you best. We will give you the best advice that we have after many years fishing this area.
Can I still go if I don´t have a lot of experience?
YES. We can teach beginners to fly fish and have a great experience. Nonfishing activities are also an option when you are staying in the lodges. So a morning fishing and an afternoon hiking, for example, is easy to plan.
Is there Wi-Fi at the lodges?
All the Estancias have good wi-fi and phone service. In some areas on the way to the rivers, there you will have cell service.
What´s the weather going to be like?
Patagonia is very similar to Montana. The days can be warm, but you should be prepared with cold weather clothes such as a rain jacket, fleece, and layers. A list of clothes will be on your itinerary.
What rods, flies, lines, etc. should I bring?
We recommend bringing a 6 weight rod for bigger flies and windy days plus a 5 weight rod for dry fly fishing and nymphing. Both of them with floating lines, but is not a bad idea to bring a sinking tip for the 6 weight especially early in the season. We have extra rods in case you need, and flies/tippet will be provided by the guides. Prior to your trip, we will send you a list of flies we normally use in case you want to have a full box with you all the time.
How much cash do I need? Can I use a credit card?
You will need enough cash to pay for personal shopping in Buenos Aires and in Patagonia. Credit cards can be used in most places but it is recommend to have some cash for small shopping, and tips for the guides and lodge staff.
Do you have laundry service?
Each lodge provides laundry service that can usually be done for a small fee. From one day to another you will have your laundry done, sometimes from the morning to the afternoon.
What kind of electricity does the lodge have?
Argentina uses 220 volt electricity. All the lodges have converters to use, so you will be able to charge your phone, camera, iPad, etc. Most electronic products convert 110 volts to 220 volts automatically, so it shouldn't be a problem.
