Fly tying original patterns designed by Adrian Dufflocq for Trout fishing in Patagonia at either side of the Andes, Chile and Argentina.

Adrian and Pat's place in the history of fly fishing in Chile. In the early 60's, while fishing and exploring Chile and Argentina´s trout rivers, coincidentally so well described by Roderick Haig-Brown in his famous book "Fisherman's Winter", the search for a good life brought Adrian Dufflocq and his young wife Patricia, to a superb place on the Cumilahue river. Subsequently, in 1963, they built and started the first fly fishing lodge in Chile. For decades, stories of the Cumilahue Lodge, describing the pleasant, traditional ambience of a world class fly fishing lodge, have been written by famous anglers in many books and magazines.

Adrian's enthusiasm and devotion for trout fishing evolved over the years through the whole spectrum of fly fishing, including inland water fisheries management. He put together the largest library in the country about recreational fishing. This enhanced his field experience into scholar knowledge, which resulted in several consulting projects for the Government and for private enterprises and investors. Within a short walk from the lodge, in an idyllic stream at the property, the guests fish with dry flies, nymphs, or wet flies and streamers for trophy trout. The anglers also fish several other rivers in this unique drainage. Born in Chile, Adrian and Patricia speak fluent English, French and Spanish, and they provide a personal attention to their guests.
