Fly fishing with John Joy in Southern Chile.
John and his family (including Odie the dog) gave me a very nice introduction to life in Southern Chile at the Tradicion Austral bed and breakfast in Puerto Varas.
The accommodations, the meals, chats with the family were all excellent - and quite frankly not something I put a great deal of thought into - I was focussed on the fishing...
And it did not disappoint ! Both the Maullin and the Petrohue were amazing pieces of water to just float and enjoy let alone fly fish. The fishing, working streamers on a sinking tip, was new to me and very effective.
And of course John's patience and ability to put us just were I could reach the fish made the experience very satisfying and something I will remember for years to come.
If you are interested in a fly fishing adventure to remember in Patagonia Southern Chile, I highly recommend contacting John to discuss the possibilities.
