OUR TEAM IN ACTION!
In 1966, our founder made his first fly-fishing expedition to Chile. During the last decade, he invited fly-fishing friends and other
well-known fly fishermen from the Pacific Northwest to explore, enjoy and “decode” this unique fishery in southern Chile. Over 3,200 acres on Chilean waters were acquired based on these
exploratory fishing expeditions and their discoveries. These locations are a result of their combined experience and what these experts consider to be the “best” of the best” fly-fishing in
As stories spread and interest grew, our founder was encouraged to make this opportunity available to other fly-fishing enthusiasts as well. Southern Chile
Expeditions was thus born. If your interest is fly-fishing rivers and lakes, saltwater estuaries or both, you deserve the best the Patagonia has to offer and that is what we have awaiting you.
We invited Jeff Edvalds, a well known fly-fishing photographer to accompany Dale DePriest, Jack Mitchell and Guy Fullart on a fly-fishing
expedition through our fishing grounds to visually portray what we have awaiting you. Jeff has continued to join us each year and his photos, taken at our lodges, appear in numerous articles in Gray’s Sporting
Journal, Fly Rod & Reel and many other fishing magazines and gear ads illustrating our famous fishery.
Rather than illustrate the potential of our fishery through a collection of “once in a lifetime” fish caught by selected clients over a number of years, the photos on these
pages are of a SINGLE FLY-FISHING EXPEDITION! They illustrate a few of our favorite fishing locations and a small sample of Dale, Jack and Guy’s results on the
expedition. You’ll recognize all of the individuals in these pages as being the same -- only the locations and the fish are different. We continue to have marvelous results.
We truly believe photographs ARE worth MORE than a thousand words!
Our premier staff of fly-fishing guides will enable you to enjoy this experience to its full potential. During the fly-fishing season in the Northern Hemisphere, our North
American guides work in Alaska, the lower 48 states and British Colombia. Our multilingual Chilean guides have numerous years of angling experience on our local waters
and provide real competition to our guides from the North.
Our lodges have been featured twice on Fly Fish the World and other international film and television programs.
Our guests have been extremely pleased with the professionalism and expertise of our guides. Their ability to tie and match the hatch is among, if not the best, in Chile.
