Helicopter Fishing in Patagonia

Spending a week onboard the expedition vessel Atmosphere was an incredible experience, the ultimate catch-and-release that I will never forget. The service was first-class, prompt and one step ahead of your every move. We drank champagne in glass flutes while we soaked in the natural hot springs. You wouldn't have realized you were at waters' edge during daily lunches. Guides prepared an extravagant meal while we sipped a variety of local wines. My favorite highlight was the access to the Chilean wilderness. Fishing remote lakes, rivers and streams only accessible by our onboard helicopters. Giant prehistoric looking Brown Trout and brightly colored Rainbow Trout lurk in the untouched waters and provide tight lines for all fishermen. The up close encounter with the far-flung mountains, volcanoes and glaciers are only witnessed by the lucky few onboard the Atmosphere or on the Hollywood big screens.
