Red Stag Patagonia

The chase is fair, everything else is excellent

Red Stag Patagonia outfits some of the best Red Stag hunts in both Argentina and Chile. All of Red Stag’s hunts are fair chase, open country hunts in universally magnificent terrain, and their high success rate speaks for itself. In addition to stags, RSP has some of the best free range Black Buck and Axis Deer hunting in South America. Whether you’re targeting a trophy, searching for a representative animal, or just want to hunt big game in un-pressured new terrain, Red Stag Patagonia will confidently guide you to success. Finally, don’t just take our word for it. Ask those who’ve made the trip. We’d be happy to put you in touch with many, many sportsmen and women who’ve made it a habit to both hunt and fish with us annually.

Wishing a very happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and clients in the U.S.

We would like take a moment to voice our thankfulness for all of our clients and friends that make our business so incredibly enjoyable.

Speaking on behalf of the entire Red Stag Patagonia family, we thank you for trusting us with your sporting holidays and we hope to welcome you back very soon.

Nervous Waters Fly Fishing

A higher form of fishing

The Nervous Waters collection of fishing lodges stands alone in the world of sportfishing. Built around the best resource destinations, our lodges offer a level of service on par with the finest boutique hotels of the world, yet each shines with its own personality. The quality of our lodges is only surpassed by the dedication and expertise of our management and guiding teams who have spent decades mastering their craft, and their waters. Constantly on a quest to do even better, there is truly no family of angling destinations that compares!

The Ibera Marshland's large, resident Dorado are here and on the prowl for easy meals in the channels and lagoons. Recent scouting trips into the Marsh have proven worth their weight in gold!

A “Belgian cast” is a game changer when you’re facing a cross wind on the flats of the Bahamas. This casting technique will help you deliver flies perfectly to the bonefish charging onto the flat.

Dorado seem to spend more time in the air than in the water after they take a fly. Their acrobatics never fail to impress no matter how many fish you jump in a session at @PiraLodge!
