At Solid Adventures, we offer an array of hosted fishing trips to several outstanding fishing lodges and destinations around the world. Solid, as we refer to it for short, was first established in 1991 under the name Loop Adventures and in 2011, we officially transitioned to our present name-sake. In our early days, we were among the first anglers and entrepreneurs to scout Russia’s Kola Peninsula in pursuit of truly untouched salmon and trout waters. When we first embarked on these adventures, we did so with nothing but our knapsacks and a couple of fishing rods. What we left with however, was a cache of wild stories and unbelievable memories that we will never forget. For the next 15 years, we proceeded to run fishing camps and hosted trips to the Kola Peninsula, that provided our anglers the rare opportunity to visit waters teeming with fish eager to take the fly upon every cast. Ever since, we’ve been exploring and scouting the planet looking for that same Kola Feeling — unfished waters off the beaten path, that we can share with passionate destination anglers like yourself.
Since 2002, we’ve concentrated our operations in Southern Patagonia and it’s here that we found exactly what we were looking for: the Rio Gallegos. The stunning Rio Gallegos meanders through the windswept plains of southern Patagonia and across a heterogeneous geologic landscape from which deep pools and shallow river stretches emerge. With it’s thriving fish populations and dynamic features, this river is any anglers dream. This year, we’ll be returning to the Rio Gallegos for our seventeenth straight season and we couldn’t be happier to share this exceptional destination with our clients.
After falling head-over-heels for Southern Patagonia, we pursued additional scouting trips in the region and found some real gems that remain a part of our programs today. You can read about these programs, including our newest addition, the Eagle Valley Lodge, under the destinations section on this website.
While we’re extremely proud of the destinations we offer, at Solid, we’re constantly striving to improve our existing programs, uncover new destinations, and enhance the sustainability of our long-term fishing operations. In fact, we have several scouting expeditions planned for 2019, during which we’ll offer a number of thrill-seeking anglers the opportunity to join the Solid team on the adventure of a lifetime. If you feel that this opportunity could be for you, keep a close eye on our social media channels to learn more about trip openings.
