WAYPOINTS is a high-energy, entertaining podcast for those that fish…and those that travel to fish. Destination discussions, travel news, location profiles, equipment recommendations, insider tips and interviews with the most accomplished and interesting names in adventure travel.
In part two of our extended episode on fishing in Patagonia, we’re continuing our conversations with Travis Smith and Rance Rathie, the founders and owners of Patagonia Rivers Guides in Argentina. This episode focuses on the “how, what, when and where” aspects of fishing throughout Patagonia – a vast, remote, and largely-uninhabited region that encompasses over 300,000 square miles of pristine mountains, rivers, grasslands, and prairies. Stretching more than a thousand miles through southern Argentina and spilling across the border into Chile, Patagonia is larger than the state of Texas – an area that is isolated, unspoiled, and magnificent. Home to an amazing number of rivers, spring creeks, and lakes – and healthy populations of rainbows, browns, and brook trout – it is a destination that has for decades drawn anglers from all over the world. In more than 25 years of operating Patagonia River Guides, Rance and Travis have become a force in the world of South American angling, creating what is arguably the most comprehensive and professional fly fishing operation found anywhere in Patagonia.
