Overview

The backpacker has always been attracted to South America, particularly to exploring the Andean mountain chain that stretches from Venezuela to Tierra del Fuego. The author learnt how to catch trout in New Zealand which has many features similar to Chile. As a backpacker his first trout encounters are described about fishing in the Chilean and Argentine Lake Districts, successfully using New Zealand fishing techniques.

Backpackers have the constraint of very limited baggage which restricts the amount of fishing gear that can be carried. No waders or landing nets allowed. Compromise is necessary. A combination fly and spinning rod, specially designed for backpacker use, is considered ideal to cope with the wide range of fishing conditions encountered. A backup telescopic spinning rod is also recommended.

Tips are given on backpacker accommodation in hospedajes as well as information on up-market fishing lodges that abound in Chile and Argentina. If you want to know where to economically catch a trout in the Andes, anywhere from Venezuela to Cape Horn, then this is the Fishing Guide book for you.
