Orvis Week at Estancia Tecka

Details

February 15-22, 2020 SOLD OUT

Call to inquire about additional dates.


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:

  • 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 HOST, KIP VIETH

Kip Vieth is the owner of Wildwood Float Trips based in Monticello, MN and was the 2017 Orvis Freshwater Guide of the Year. He is also the author of The Orvis Guide to Muskie on the Fly. Kip has been fly fishing for over 30 years and cut his teeth pursuing trout on the Spring Creeks of the Driftless region in Southwest Wisconsin. Now living in Minnesota, Kip guides for a multitude of species from Driftless trout to smallmouth bass and musky. He offers a western-style fishing experience with drift boat floats down the Midwest‘s many rivers and streams.

Kip's passion to share his love of multiple species on a fly rod led him to host and guide, Orvis's first muskie school in 2014 & 2015. He is also an avid fly tier, and has designed multiple fly patterns currently being sold by Orvis. Kip and his business have been featured on Minnesota Bound, Orvis Outdoor Adventures, The Drake, Orvis Blog, Outdoor News, Midwest Fly Fishing and Eastern, Southwest and Northwest Fly Fishing Magazines. Kip can’t wait to get out on the water and share his passion for fly fishing at Carrileufu River Lodge in beautiful Patagonia!
