From our Patrons

I had the good fortune to spend a week with Ron Sorensen’s Chocolate Lab Expeditions in Patagonia in February 2022. It was a week of spectacular fishing and accommodations on the Chimehuin and Limay Rivers. On my first day on the Chimehuin I caught 72 trout, not including the 16 that got away! His guides are first class and the two lodges, the River House, and his new Limay River Ranch, are deluxe. The new lodge, of Sorensen’s own design, is also an architectural masterpiece consisting of progressive, contemporary “tiny home” style modules/cottages surrounding a larger communal lodge space. It is unique amongst lodges around the world and affords the ultimate in comfort.

I’ve flyfished in virtually every Canadian province and U.S. state that has solid dry fly fishing. I’ve fished in Chile and Argentina, New Zealand and an assortment of other places. I only wish every lodge and outfitter was as outstanding as Ron Sorensen and his Chocolate Lab Expeditions. If there is a better river in the world than the Limay River in Argentina, I want to see video evidence.
