Kau Tapen and Villa Maria Lodges, both nestled on the south bank of the Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego, and Pira Lodge, located in the Ibera Marshlands, are three of the finest fishing lodges operated in Argentina by Nervous Waters. At these charming, well-appointed lodges, you can enjoy world-class fly fishing with bilingual Argentine and international guides, tasty cuisine, and the best in Argentine hospitality, creating the ultimate sea run trout and golden Dorado adventures.

At all three of our Argentine lodges we work tirelessly before, during and after the season to offer our fishing guests an authentic and rewarding experience by paying attention to even the most minute details—from being on time every time, to the quality of our wines, to the type of vehicles we choose. Our Argentine lodges host only a limited number of guests each week, again ensuring great service, and plenty of “elbow room” in the lodge and on the river.

Argentina is the eighth-largest country on the planet. While it is mostly known for fine wines, soccer, the tango, and Eva Peron, over the last decade, Argentina has emerged as the premier reverse season fly fishing destination. It’s easy to reach Argentina via overnight flights, and every single visitor to this fascinating nation raves about the hospitality, warmth, and sense of culture and family of the Argentine people.

Tierra del Fuego is the ultimate Argentine destination for sea run brown trout, period. And once you have been there, you know that traveling to the end of the Earth is the only way to access the greatest sea trout available anywhere. Meanwhile, the Ibera Marshlands in northern Argentina boasts fly fishing for golden Dorado in a region that dwarfs the Florida Everglades. And as for the fighting ability of the dorado? They are fast, they love to steal fly lines, and they love to jump. What more can you ask of a game fish? Both destinations are true wonders of the fishing world.
