About our Company

After many years of experience in Fly Fishing, we decided to turn our passion into our lifestyle.

More than twenty five years fishing around the globe, hiring many fly fishing guide service, six years guiding for major fly fishing travel service providers in Patagonia Argentina, gave us an understanding of what people needs when looking for a guided fly fishing trip and how valuable their time is to be wasted on the wrong destination or service.

That’s how we decided to start SouthernLoops, a fly fishing travel service company based in San Martin de los Andes, Patagonia Argentina. We provide tailor made fly fishing travel service carried out at  Northern Patagonia Argentina very best and world renowned trout waters.
We have a group of locals, full-time, highly qualified, duly certified fly fishing guides who are english speaking and work under licenses granted by the province of Neuquén and the Lanin National Park.

Let us share our passion for fly fishing with you. We will help you plan your trip by customizing every detail based on your preferences and we will ensure that you have a trip just like the one you dreamed of.

What our Clients Say

Great Fishing in Argentina
Great Fishing in Argentina We had a wonderful experience with Esteban while fishing in Argentina. His operation is very professional with great equipment and reliable staff. Lunches were outstanding and the fishing was awesome. Esteban gets my highest recommendations, he will put you on the fish and you will have a great experience.
- Eric Milne
Awesome days in Argentina
Awesome four days in Argentina Esteban and his team did a great job in all aspects of our trip. He arrived on time and his drivers were careful and got us to some great fishing spots. He was professional in all aspects of the trip and very patient in relating to our small group. He knew the rivers and the best spots for fishing and delivered a fun and entertaining couple of days. Most importantly you could feel that he really cared about the experience for his clients and wanted them to have the best that Argentina has to offer. I can't recommend him highly enough. Book him for Patagonia fishing.

Great fishing, excellent guiding....terrific value for a very fair price!
Two of us fished hard for six days with Esteban Urban, the owner/operator of Southern Loops, in late January of 2019. Esteban picks his support team carefully -- drivers, hotel choices, etc. This matters, especially after a long float to some remote pickup site. His standards are high, focused very much on the fishing experience. HIs English is excellent, and he's a patient Instructor, if instruction is desired along the floats and wades. Long days of fishing, again if desired (we did!), and Esteban has the endurance and enthusiasm to please. Esteban chases the best fishing, and best conditions (wind can be a factor in Patagonia, so flexibility in put-in choices matter). With compliments to his wife, who packs the hefty lunch basket daily, stream-side lunches are hearty and welcome -- sometimes meats cooked over an open fire. We added one "camping" outing, an overnight on the river, making a two-day adventure. Don't skip this option, as you'll remember it forever! Book your days directly with Esteban, as no need for any middleman on this one. He's honest, fair, and reliable.
