What To Pack for a Patagonia Fly-Fishing Trip

The Orvis Patagonia Packing List collection includes essential clothing and fly-fishing gear you need for a trip to this vast, trout-laden region. Wherever you’re heading on your fly-fishing trip to Patagonia, you’ll need to pack smart for unpredictable weather. In both Chile and Argentina, the days can get hot, and the temperatures plummet at night. High winds and sudden rains add to the adventure. But as we say, there’s no such thing as bad weather, only poor preparation. So, make sure you include a few options in quick-dry, moisture-wicking casting shirts in your bag, as well as a waterproof fishing jacket. Our women’s and men’s PRO Insulated Hoodie is a reliable choice to combat the cold, and our redesigned PRO Fishing Jacket offers breathable, waterproof protection in a comfortable, mid-weight outer layer. We include packable vests in this collection for a handy warm layer you can peel off when the temperatures rise. We suggest packing your own fly-fishing gear, primarily so you’ll have familiar resources to use on these thrilling and productive rivers. Start with our elite Helios fly-fishing rod, and outfit it with any of the lightweight, high-tech reels in this collection. We include trout, salmon, sink tip, and cold-water sinking lines here: Choose the ones you want that will best land your quarry. A waterproof backpack or fishing pack is a must for long days swinging on Patagonian waters, and we offer several sizes to accommodate your needs. You’ll also need adventure-ready luggage, and our Trekkage™ line of water-resistant bags, including rolling bags and a toiletry travel kit, briefcase, backpack, and adventure tote, features abrasion- and puncture-resistant construction as well as lockable zippers for security. Review the checklist below to make sure you’re outfitted with all the travel essentials you’ll need for your fly-fishing trip to Patagonia.
