The Argentina Trout fly fishing program for Estancia Tecka takes advantage of the flights to Esquel from Buenos Aires (Sat.-Sat.). Once you arrive to Buenos Aires on your international flight, you will be transferred across town to the domestic airport, where you will connect to a flight into Esquel. The staff at Estancia Tecka will greet you there and transport you on the hour and a half transfer to the lodge. The next six days are full fishing days. The last day in Tecka, your group will transfer back to Esquel for the flight into B.A., where you transfer to the international airport and your flight home that evening.
Patagonia is known the world over for its incredible fly fishing, and this ranch is no exception. Estancia Tecka provides what no other ranch in Argentina can: 96 miles of private trout water. The Corcovado winds through the property on its way to the Pacific Ocean and is home to Rainbow, Brown, and Brook Trout. This larger river is fished mainly from drift boats, while some wading is done in freestone flats and banks.
The smaller spring creek, Rio Tecka, is fished delicately from the banks with various dry fly patterns and produces exciting strikes and large fish. Additional spring creeks are found throughout the property and provide the ultimate test of skill for any angler. With its varying landscape and diverse rivers, this ranch is the ultimate Patagonia trout fishing experience.
Estancia Tecka is home to two lodges situated in different areas of the ranch. Tecka Lodge is the original house dating back to the 1920s, and has four large bedrooms, granite bathrooms, and the traditional estancia character. You approach Tecka Lodge over a large set of rolling hills and see beautifully manicured grounds, set within towering Poplar trees and large equine and sheep paddocks.
Caridad, the second lodge on the ranch, sits on the banks of the Corcovado River with the snow capped Andes Mountains as a backdrop. Caridad has six bedrooms, spacious bathrooms, and offers beautiful views of the surrounding river and countryside.
