1. Kau Tapen Lodge, Tierra Del Fuego, ArgentinaGet More Info
Best time to go: December–March
Kau Tapen Lodge, located on the banks of the Rio Grande in Argentinian Patagonia, is nothing short of legendary. Operated by Nervous Waters, a first-class angling outfitter, the 10-room lodge is surrounded by pools where you’ll find some of the best sea-run brown trout fishing in the world (20 pounders are caught on a weekly basis). After hauling in these river monsters, you can unwind around a massive stone fireplace, sipping Argentinian wine and taking in views of the rambling Rio Grande Valley. There’s a full spa with a Jacuzzi, sauna, and Finnish steam bath, so you can rest your bones before preparing for the next day’s outing at the fly-tying table.
