What You'll Find In The Patagonia Journal


We’re famous for publishing well written, beautifully photographed articles about fly fishing and hunting adventures in this part of the world since 2008; along with covering some elements of culture unique to Argentina. Now we’re also creating some great videos of the action that you can enjoy while you’re at your office and dreaming of being here.

Fly Rod Reviews

We field test fly rods in the real world. Not casting into hoolahoops in front of the neighbors. We use them in fierce wind, driving rain, and sunny days from a fast moving boat. We use them with different lines, flies, and techniques that you have to use to catch monster trout at the End of the World. If it works here, it will work anywhere, and we tell you what we really think it. We’re beholden to none.

Trip Planning Help

We live here. We fish here. and we’ve explored a lot of places and stayed in many destination lodges and fished with many guides. Who better to rely on for some advice on planning and booking the trip you’ve dreamed about your entire life? We traveled here the first time ourselves many years ago, and felt the same angst about putting our faith in people we didn’t know. Send us a note, we can help.

A Brief Bio

Memo Stephens

Memo StephensHi, my friends call me Memo, I hope you will too. I was once an executive in a Fortune 20 company, trapped in the world of working men. Now, I’m a published author, adventurer, and a dedicated wellness mentor. 

The fishing legends and photos brought me here many years ago, and the landscapes, people, and endless trout water captured my soul. I now make my home on a quiet mountain side, over-looking gin clear water in the “Lakes Region” of Patagonia; and watch the trout rising to the evening hatch from my terrace. It’s an experience that needs to be shared, and I hope you find our articles and videos interesting.
