We spent a week with Gabriel and Andres Fontanazza, of Flotadas Chimehuin for a week on fly fishing on four different rivers in Northern Patagonia. They arranged for us to stay in wonderful lodges, with great food and wines. Their skill and experience on these local rivers (Malleo, Chimehuin, Collon Cura, and Alumine) made the fly fishing adventure a "once... More

I have been to the Lake District of Patagonia 6 times. This was undoubtably the best trip I have had! Gabe & Andre were excellent guides who found us big trout on small flies in the most unlikely spots. They arranged good accommodations & food at a reasonable price. And they were fun to be with. Of course their sister... More

As I was watching the plane land in San Martin from B.A., I was wishing that I was on that plane starting our trip instead of departing. We had such a great time there with the brothers.

With two boats, one would go ahead to get everything ready for us. We are both in our seventies although experienced wilderness campers in our younger days, we were a... More

Over the years, my family and I have spent a week to ten days fishing with Flotatadas Chimehuin. We've made nine trips to Junin to fish with them. We have returned again and again to this lovely area of Patagonia for two reasons: the fabulous fishing opportunities on the local rivers and the wonderful guiding service of the Fontanazza family....

On our March 2013 trip to Patagonia one of the highlights of our entire Argentinian trip was 2 days float fishing with Flotadas Chimehuin on the Aluminae and Collon Cura Rivers. My husband is a long time flyfishing guide in Colorado and we picked Flotadas Chimehuin because it is a family run business. Our main pre-trip communication was with Giselle... More
