Recommended Gear for Kau Tapen Lodge, Argentina

In the mid 1930s juvenile Brown Trout were planted in Tierra del Fuego’s Rio Grande River which resulted in the most fabulous sea run Brown Trout fishery in the world.

Fifty years later, Donovan and Jacqueline De Las Carreras built Kau Tapen Lodge (means “house of fishing” in the local Indian language) which was the first fishing lodge on the Rio Grande and set a standard of excellence that has been copied by lodges from all over the world.

It set a standard for both the quality of accommodations and fishing that has kept anglers coming to Kau Tapen Lodge ever since. Kau Tapen has an 80% return rate!

Five world records have been set at Kau Tapen. 27 to 35 pound trout are caught each season and 20 pounders are caught every week. A stay at Kau Tapen will get you into a fishing experience of a lifetime.

Imagine spending the day catching these monster sea run Browns and then coming back to a five star lodge for cocktails and finishing off the day with a great gourmet meal and plenty of world famous Argentine wine.
