Imagine fishing in some of the world’s most beautiful, far-flung destinations AND staying in lodges full of home from home comfort. Not always easy to achieve in the angling world but the Eleven stable of properties has got this down to perfection. Great fishing in the company of superb guides, gorgeous places to relax and share stories of a day on the water, and wonderful non-fishing activities to enjoy if desired.

We’ve just had end of season updates from the Eleven Southern Hemisphere lodges in Chile and New Zealand. All perfect locations for a combination of angling and outdoor adventure.

Lights out in Patagonia

Martin Pescador Lodge

“This season was full of everything our guests love—twitching dries on lakes, casting streamers for big browns, and working the banks with terrestrials. We also uncovered new hidden gems this season that we can’t wait to share next year.”
– Elliot Manning, Angling Sales Manager

Rio Palena Lodge

“What a season. Thanks to a great snowpack, water levels were higher than usual—which meant more fish, and bigger fish. We made one of our best discoveries yet on a recent scouting. Exciting times in Patagonia!”
– Nick Jenkins, Guide Operations Manager

The Bite in New Zealand

Owen River Lodge

“The South Island delivered, as always. Our highlight trout weighed in at 10.5 pounds in December on a nearby backcountry stream. Next season, we’re staying the course to deliver the same phenomenal experience to guests new and old.”
– David Pike, Lodge Manager & Head Guide

Cedar Lodge

“Mother nature threw all types of weather at us this season, but the helicopter kept us nimble and delivered phenomenal days. If you want to heli-fish some of the most exclusive water on the South Island next season, give us a ring. We’re filling up!”
– Scottie Little, Lodge Manager & Head Guide
