Your Lodge is booked! Flights arranged. Gear looks good too. Maybe a bit tattered but hell you aren’t flying 6,000 miles to be in a fashion show. But the flies. What about the flies?

TIPS

When you pack for your trip to Patagonia, it's wise to separate key equipment into two different bags makes in case you lose one en route. It's rare but often times with several flight connections sometimes there are baggage delays. If you're in a jam though, we always carry extra gear at the lodge.  

One of the most pressing questions for anglers before a big trip is what kind of flies to bring. Below is the definitive Patagonia Chile top 5 Fly list. These are the “Thank God I brought ‘em with me” options. You should also bring lots of tippet and your entire kit and caboodle but don’t forget these!

Los Torreones Lodge is located on a magnificent stretch of the Simpson River where these flies work magic throughout the season.
