Located beneath the Tres Monjas Peaks in the heart of the Futaleufu Valley lies the Condor Nest Patagonia Fly Fishing Ranch. From this ranch you can expereince a unique Patagonia fly fishing vacation that can be found nowhere else in the world. Designed for physically fit anglers who want a more active fishing vacation, we use our world class expedition and whitewater heritage to allow fly fishers access to the most rugged and hidden corners of Patagonia and the Futaleufu Rive Valley where others rarely (or never) fish. This Chilean fly fishing ranch is surrounded by nature, with hundreds of acres bordering the Río Futaleufu, Río Azul and Las Cruces. The Condor Nest is accessible by water, foot, horse or helicopter.

Later in the day we will take advantage of the evening hatches with dry flies, then journey back to the camp for dinner.

As we approach the Class V Zeta, we walk around as we see our guides take the raft through the rapid. We fish on the stretch of rarely fished waters until the next Class V rapid, the Throne Room.
