Cinco Rios Chile

I have been at this lodge for 6 days now, the meals are superb, the wait staff is delightful, the scenery is outstandingly beautiful My hosts brothers Sebastian and Juan Andres Gailia are 2 of the nicest gentleman I have ever met. The Lodge is a cross between modern technology and old world tin roof Chilean homestead. The fly fishing is undeniably some of the worlds best. The fish see very little pressure, not leader shy and will pretty much eat a flip flop if you had one small enough. The other lodge guests will be missed and I learned a lot from each one of them. As they say in Chile Caio, Caio….
life on the fly



With all the off shore rods and reels in the industry, there are a few companies who are home grown and  Im a firm believer in ,you get what you pay for. So  I would like to give a shout out to some fine American Made Companies. Scott Fly Rod (Montrose, CO) & Hatch Outdoors (Vista, CA). I picked  up some gear from them for my up coming trip to Chile  this January , at the Cinco Rios Lodge.  I received my rod and reel today : G2 8’4″ 4wt Scott Rod & Plus 3 Large Arbor Hatch Reel.  I can not wait to land my first Chilean Brown Trout!!!!!
