We're Headed To Argentina!

In just 11 days, the Unicoi Outfitters crew will be headed to Argentina for a week of fishing with Andes Drifters in the famous San Martin area of the Andes. While much of our excitement centers around experiencing world class trout fishing and the Argentine culture, we may be just as pumped about the fact that it is now SUMMER south of the equator. Our group will be departing Atlanta the evening of January 22nd and returning the morning of January 31st with seven days of dry fly fishing in between. We'll be arriving during the peak of the inchworm hatch which makes the big browns of the Alumine River stupid. Just what we're looking for, big, stupid brown trout! We will also be throwing hoppers at rainbows and browns on the Chimehuin and Malleo Rivers and, if the timing is right, we'll be fishing for big lake run trout taking floating minnow patterns on the Caleufu River. All in all, we're looking forward to good fishing, good company, good food and good wines all under the backdrop of the Andes Moutains.

We're still able to schedule more trips during February and March of this year. If you have any interest in going, please check our destination page on our website. We would love to help you experience this trip of a lifetime.
