About Us

The Nervous Waters collection of fishing lodges stands alone in the world of sportfishing. Built around the best resource destinations, our lodges offer a level of service on par with the finest boutique hotels of the world, yet each shines with its own personality.

The quality of our lodges is only surpassed by the dedication and expertise of our management and guiding teams who have spent decades mastering their craft, and their waters. Constantly on a quest to do even better, there is truly no family of angling destinations that compares!

Our Collection

OUR OTHER SPORTING LODGES

The Kautapen Group (TKG) is a boutique collection of 21 fishing and hunting lodges spanning Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and the Bahamas. Since 1984, we’ve built decades of experience as industry leaders in luxury sporting travel. We are proud to continue to offer our guests a level of service matching and exceeding the finest boutique hotels in the world, each with a unique personality.

Attention to detail is our highest priority in the lodge and the field. Every property has been carefully curated to give our guests direct access to the highest quality sporting opportunities, and luxurious accommodations that allow guests to unwind and recharge after the day’s adventures.

Conservation

Around the world, fisheries are under threat. Development continues to encroach on wilderness areas, and climate change is affecting oceans and river habitats. Overfishing has also taken a toll on our finite fish species. Therefore, as fly-fishing business operators, we have a responsibility to not only protect these resources but to help preserve them for many generations to come.

Sea trout are optimistic creatures, every season they return to the Rio Grande with the same vigor they did the year before. The urge to return is something we've all felt these past 18 months, and just like our beloved trout, we will also be back as soon as we can, ready for action and loving every minute on the water!

The glare of the low evening sun on the water, the slowly dropping wind that starts to let all the eerie sounds of the southern Pampas come through, and the feeling that every cast could be the one. A priceless memory and something special to look forward to for next season!⁣
