Even in north Patagonia, the climate can be rude, so good technical fishing equipment is important.
For spinning fishing we recommend minnow imitations (2-3 inches), spinners N°3 or 4 (blue is efficient). Smith lures offer the perfect range for fishing in patagonian rivers: D contact, D direct, AR-HD minnow, DD panish for big rivers and some Deka Bokun, GF80, very effcient for king salmon.
Some of the good flies to get are ear’s hear, prince nymph, dragon-fly imitations, bugs, grasshoppers, tchernobyl’s ant and streamers : wooly bugger, zonkers, leech etc…Don’t be afraid to come with large flies, patagonian trouts love them
I use the Bestard Canyon Guide model canyoning shoes and highly recommend them : comfortable, light, easy to use and with a very good grip. I used them for two full seasons and they are still impeccable.
