Estancia Tecka, Argentina

Tecka is one of the biggest ranches in South America and a major trout stream flows right through the middle of it in splendid isolation. You'll rarely see another person near this river, except for the estancia's gauchos on horseback. This fly fishing lodge is set up with some of the best English-speaking guides in Argentina and they are well outfitted with drift boats to get you to the best pools on the Corcovado River. You can fish for brook trout, rainbows and browns on the Tecka, a long meandering spring creek that has enough unique water to satisfy even the most intense spring creek fisherman. There is some great fishing in late season; March big brook trout run upstream while lake run Rainbows also make their way up at the tail end of April. With over 24,000 acres of land for each angler, you'll often feel as if you're the only one fishing in Patagonia.

"My trip last March was excellent, but this time was even better!! Guides were fantastic and I was catching up to 60 fish a day - unbelievable!
I am already looking forward to returning in March 2013.
Again my sincere thanks to you and all your staff for enabling me to have such a fantastic time.

"Our favorite part of the trip was fishing, food & wine with great conversations.
If we could have changed something about our trip we would of skipped Mendosa and fished for a 2nd week.
The Mai 10 transfers Orvis Travel set up in Buenos Aires were GREAT! They took all of the fear out of the Airport transfers. We highly Recommend them! Estancia Tecka is a tough place to get to. You have to allow for travel changes and bad weather. Once your there, they will take good care of you. As a fly fisherman, I wake-up early to fish first light. That is NOT the Argentina fishing schedule. It took me 3 days to fully appreciate the RELAXED Argentina Schedule! Breakfast at 9:00, Fishing by 10:00, Lunch at 2:30, siesta, afternoon fishing at 5:30 to dark, shower, cocktails at 10:30, dinner at 11:00 and finally to bed around 1:00AM. Once I adjusted, I had the time of my life!
