Chile is a lot like Montana in the Southern Hemisphere. Summers (our winters) are warm with cool nights, and there can be some rain since they have a lot of coastline. It is important to pack with layering and weatherproofing in mind. Our fishing here is strictly freshwater flyfishing. They have a tourism tax of about $100 that you have to pay at the airport upon arrival, so have a little extra cash ready. They accept US Dollars for payment of expenses and tips.

FISHING GEAR FOR CHILE FLYFISHING ADVENTURES
The freshwater oriented lodges in Chile are legendary. Some provide all the tackle you'll need, while others don't. Here is a list of some of the gear you may want to consider bringing along with you:
5-7 Weight Flyrod
Fly reel with 150 yards of 30# dacron backing and both a floating and sink-tip flyline.
The guides at our Chile lodges will have plenty of flies but sometimes it's good to have a few of your own.
