“I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time I had on my trip. Futa Lodge is a very special place and you are very fortunate to be able to represent it as a destination to your clients. The staff were exceptional, without exception. Nico, Paula and Joaquin made the trip so much more special in their professionalism and attentiveness to me and all the guests. And Corey and Matt were great guides, that made the fishing that much more enjoyable. I look forward to the day that I can book another trip with Nervous Waters.”

“I wanted to write to thank you for a wonderful week at Futa Lodge. I was amazed at the variety of fishing that Futa Lodge has to offer. One day we were fishing the Boca of the main river for big surface feeding browns that crashed our dries like polaris missiles, the next we fished enchanting mountainous brooks with delightfully colored rainbows. The highlight of my week was taking the horses out one day and riding up to a hidden and very secret hill lake where, after catching giant rainbows on dragonfly patterns, we had the most wonderful asado under the shade of some ancient old beech trees with our guides. Futa is a true angler’s paradise and I’ll definitely be going back, thank you and please thank all those at the lodge, for opening our eyes to Chilean fishing, we’ll see you next year!”

“WOW. Andrea, thanks for all of your help and support for our recent trip. The transfers were perfect. The PRANA team, Bianca, Nicolas, and George in Esquel were knowledgeable, on time, and very helpful. Please pass our appreciation to that team.

The Nervous Waters Staff at FUTA, Emer, the Chef, and her assistant made us all feel at home and welcome.

The Drivers were focused on safety and were there waiting on us when it was time to get out of the river.

The Guides were the best I’ve ever experienced. Brian and Shane did an excellent job in teaching, putting us on fish, and putting the boats into a position where anglers of all skill levels could make the cast. They were conservation minded and knew the biology of the rivers, the area, and the fish. Again. THE BEST WE’VE EVER HAD.

And thank you for your assistance in making this dream trip come to life. It’s very daunting and intimidating to try to schedule something like this in another part of the world and you and your staff made it happen. We thank you and wish we were back at Futa rather than in the middle of these snow storms we are all experiencing now.

Way To Go Nervous Waters!”

“I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed Futa! It was an incredible experience. I have hunted and fished all over the World and I have to say that the hospitality, service, facilities and the whole experience rank with the best.

The entire staff was incredible. Analia was always there for us. The food was incredible. The attention to our kids was excellent. The guides Sam and George were incredible. Carlos has to be one of the nicest and most sincere people we have met. He is the heart of FUTA!

I look forward to working with you again. Best Regards,”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my trip. Even though I am not a “real” fly fisherman the guides were very patient and helpful .I caught some beautiful trout. The accommodation, food and service were all first class. I felt everyone went the extra mile to make sure we had a pleasant experience. The scenery and beauty of the river was incredible. I enjoyed riding horses through the beautiful farmland. Keep me on your mailing list. Let me know the exact dates for the same week next year.”

“We want to thank you again for a wonderful time at Futa Lodge. It was our favorite lodge to stay in, we loved how remote it was, the scenery, food, wine, guides, staff, fishing, accommodation and the horseback riding — it was perfect!”

Craig & Joan M.,UK.

At Futa Lodge it isn’t just about the fishing. The areas through which we floated must be some of the most scenic on the planet and everyone was agog at the beauty. All in all, we loved Futa.”

“My stay was excellent. The Futa Lodge is a special place. The managers are the best lodge hosts I have ever experienced after fishing all over the world. They are a delightful young couple who make guests feel at home. Everything was perfect. The fishing was good, the food and wine were outstanding (very talented chef), and the company super. Someday I shall return.”
