Chile from the Pompas to the Rainforest 2015

by Paul Transue
Schmidt Outfitters

Schmidt Outfitters is offering a breathtaking fly fishing trip to Chile/Patagonia for wild rainbow and brown trout. This trip is a special program called "Chile from the Pompas to the Rainforest".  During this week, we will be fishing from two lodges--Estan del Zorro and Cinco Rios.  These lodges are one hour from each other and have distinctly different fisheries.  The idea is to show and explore different rivers, valleys, and fishing conditions.
Rivers in this Aysen River region include Manihuales, Simpson, Poloma, Blonco, Mogote, and the Los Palos. These rivers are fished from jet boats, drift boats, and rafts.
Meals and lodging are first class and include laundry service, wi-fi connection, and fly shop. Excellent local products are offered in the lodge menu, emphasized by the Aysen Region.  Range organic beef, wild morel mushrooms, a wide variety of fish, as well as shell fish and king crab are offered.
