Pañil Fly Fishing offers a variety of boats, from skiffs to drift boats, and other, depending on the fishing location. Your guides will make sure to use the best boat for a particular location and the boat choice won’t affect the package price.

Pañil Fly Fishing specializes in fly fishing but spinning is also an option. Your guide will take you to the best fisheries in pursuit of Steelhead and Brown Trout and it will usually take an hour to reach them.

At the beginning of the season, in November, Trout lay their eggs. At this point, they are particularly active in their search for food and become excellent targets for angling in the lakes of Fonck, Hess, and Roca.

The season culminates with the arrival of big Brown Trout in the Limay River, among many other areas, such as the Pichi Leufu river, which is ideal for beginners.

The excursions are for experienced anglers as well as beginners. Surrounded by an excellent environment, you will be able to fish from the craft or wade, with a stop to enjoy a wonderful lunch.

Your guides will offer a safe experience and great service, giving expert advice that will ensure you have a great fishing experience and create fond memories that will make you want to come back time and again.
