Mauro Ochoa


He lives in Bariloche, a mountain town in Northern Patagonia; Argentina. 

He works as fishing guide and Underhand casting instructor in Nahuel Huapi National Park area. Bariloche is surrounded by high mountains, forest and a big system of lakes. As you drive to the east the main rivers run into the Patagonian desert, called Estepa. The town of Bariloche is the starting point of many prime fishing destinations. Limay and Traful are two of the best rivers in northern patagonia where you can fish for rainbow, brown, silver brown trout and land locked salmon. Limay and Traful rivers are also ideal for wading with two handed rods chasing for the big ones on November (premier), December, March and April (fall). 

He runs his own fishing operation for more than 10 years, www.patagoniadrift.com.ar. His programs combine fishing with casting clinics for all levels, and go from day trips to several days fishing trips or expeditions; camping on the river bank or staying at nearby estancias cabins surrounded by wild Patagonian landscapes.

Passionate fly tier, Mauro spend the winter tying for his clients, lending casting courses and guiding in Orkla river (Norway). He also work in the local guides association and in different conservation projects.
