Our hosted freshwater fly fishing holidays offer a unique, thrilling and uncomplicated way to travel and provide discerning anglers with more than a standard fishing holiday. Typically based on between six to sixteen travelling rods, they venture to a range of diverse handpicked destinations all around the globe, from an Amazon adventure, deep in the Brazilian Jungle targeting the mighty Arapaima, to the crystal clear rivers of Noway and Iceland, targeting the powerful Atlantic Salmon. From chrome Sea Trout fishing in Argentina at the famous Las Buitrears and Worlds End Lodge to the beautifully coloured Golden Dorado in Bolivia, we offer it all.
Anglers who travel with us on one of our guided freshwater fly fishing holidays can expect a fantastic week of fishing with a fun group of fellow anglers hosted by a knowledgeable member of our team, who will know the area, fishing and overall operation. Taking away any stresses or questions you may have had, simply allowing you to relax, concentrating on one thing; the world-class fly fishing opportunities on offer.
So if you’re a single angler looking to tick a species off your bucket list and don’t want supplement fees, or perhaps a pair of anglers who wish to fish in a specific part of the world together, then our famous hosted freshwater fly fishing trips are the perfect option for you. Catering to fly fishers of all abilities, our trips are sure to provide you with an unforgettable fishing experience that will last a lifetime.

The fishing at the Rio Marie Lodge is some of the best found anywhere in Brazil, and this isn't just a guess; it's a fact.

We’ve designed our hosted freshwater fly fishing holidays to help those anglers who travel alone or those in small groups who cannot fill the minimum number of places at some destinations without paying supplements. Many destinations and fishing lodges worldwide base their itineraries on either two or four guests, so if you are a single angler, pair of anglers or a party of three, there can often be supplements to pay. This is because despite having fewer people, you still have to pay for the same package.
By joining one of our guided fishing holidays, you eliminate all of this worry and extra expense. We put all the trips together, ensuring all the spaces get filled and that no one gets hit with single angler supplements or paying for empty rooms in your Lodge or spaces on your boat.
Our passionate and knowledgeable guides are famous for going the extra mile. They’ve helped landed numerous PB’s for our travelling anglers and are always on hand to ensure your hosted fly fishing trip is the best it can be!
The simple answer is yes. Our guided freshwater fly fishing holidays are a great way of meeting like-minded anglers, and in the past, travelling fly fishers have formed lifelong friendships. Traditionally we arrange for you to meet up with your guide or host and other group members at the departure airport, which is always a good way of breaking the ice and an excellent way to start your journey.
Again the simple answer is yes. We can fill any of our hosted freshwater fly fishing trips with one, two or three anglers, and it’s even possible for a larger group of friends to join one. We can often tailor any trips to accommodate the needs of our customers, whatever they might be. It’s sometimes even possible to increase the size of a group trip to accommodate more travelling rods or non-anglers if needed. We have one sole aim: to ensure you have the very best fishing experience possible.
On most of our guided freshwater fly fishing trips, anglers usually have to share a room; however, it is possible at most Lodges and most destinations to upgrade to have a single room. If you let one of the Sportquest team know when you book your holiday, they will let you know if a single room is available and if there are any supplements to pay for it.
We have anglers travelling on our hosted freshwater fly fishing holidays from all around the globe, so that’s no problem at all. As we mentioned, many lifelong friendships have formed on our trips, and many anglers travel together year after year, which is a testament to just how popular they are and how well they work. Once again, at the time of booking, please inquire with a member of our team about alternative departure airports, as we can book flights from anywhere in the world.
Adding extra days to the end of your holiday is possible, and it’s a popular add-on for many travelling rods and non-anglers alike. With many of our freshwater fly fishing destinations in places like Iceland, Norway, Argentina and Canada, there’s a whole host of extra activities to enjoy. Sometimes it’s nice to have a couple of additional days to relax, take in the sights or explore the local area. If you speak to one of our representatives and explain what you’d like to do, they’ll be able to tailor the itinerary to suit your wishes.
As many anglers on our guided freshwater fishing holidays travel from all around the country, even the world, we know that many would prefer to travel from an airport local to them. That is something we can usually offer, providing the flights are available. There might be extra costs involved, but our representatives will always explore all avenues for you.
Joining one of our hosted freshwater fly fishing trips offers many benefits. Before, during and after your trip, you’ll have one point of contact, who’ll be on hand to answer any questions you have, whether that be about baggage limits, climate and weather at the Lodge or the required tackle for fishing. They’ll also be on hand to navigate the airports and transfers, explain and show you everything you need to know about the fishing and, of course, on hand to land those PB’s and to take those all-important trophy shots for you to share with your friends and family when you return home.
