The Magic Valley
Futaleufú River, Chile
Across the border from Esquel, Argentina, and hemmed in by the dense coihue forests of the Tenth Region of Chile, you’ll find the mighty Futaleufú. Its name means “Big River” in the native Tehuelche language. And it’s an apt description for this glacial-fed giant that houses a renowned rainbow and brown trout fishery.
Through the season, resident trout key on mayfly, caddisfly, stonefly, and terrestrial hatches, while anglers explore endless miles of classic fly water in search of exceptional fish. Join us at Futa for a fly-fishing experience the way nature intended—immaculate and all-consuming.
