Estancia Tecka with Dave and Amelia Jensen

Join a hosted fly-fishing trip near Esquel, Argentina.

Estancia Tecka with Dave and Amelia Jensen



DATES: February 9 - 16, 2019
PRICING: From $5,600 per angler

Tecka is one of the largest working cattle and sheep ranches in South America and has two major trout streams flowing right through the middle of it, in splendid isolation. You'll rarely see another person near these rivers, except for the estancia's gauchos on horseback. This fly fishing lodge is set up with some of the best English-speaking guides in Argentina and they are well outfitted with drift boats to get you to the best pools on the Corcovado River or wade fishing for brook trout, rainbows and browns on the Tecka, a long meandering spring creek that has enough unique water to satisfy even the most intense wade anglers. With over 435,000 acres of land, you'll often feel as if you're the only one fishing in Patagonia.

trip highlights:

  • Learn fishing trips and techniques from your hosts, Dave and Amelia Jensen.
  • Reserved for fly-fishing only, the Rio Corcovado runs wild and clear across the pampas and through 45 miles of the vast Estancia Tecka.
  • Enjoy opportunities to wade fish over 40 miles of private beats on the Tecka River, a classic, meandering spring creek.
  • Indulge in classical Argentine and Patagonian cuisine while drinking top, Argentinian wines.

Your Hosts

Meet your hosts, Dave and Amelia Jensen

On top of their lifetimes spent fly fishing, over a decade of travel has proven Dave and Amelia Jensen some of the finest anglers out there. Back home in Alberta, Canada, they have guided trout streams for the past 20 years: hatch chasing, sight-fishing, streamer fishing—they’ve done it all! For the past 11 years, they have also spent months at a time in New Zealand stalking browns and bows. Mixed in, they owned and published the magazine Alberta Fishing Guide and operated a multiple award winning, Orvis Endorsed Expedition in the remote Canadian Rockies.

Their passion to share the wonders of the world of fly fishing is part of who they are, and we are grateful to have Dave and Amelia for a third year of producing Orvis’ Advanced Tactics “Master-Class Monday” video series. They also contribute photos and videos to additional magazines, websites, and TV shows. Be sure to check out their Instagram feed @jensenflyfishing to catch up on some of their favorite content. They can’t wait to get out on the water with you soon!
