For those who love fly fishing, northern Patagonia is certainly on the bucket list, and if it’s not first on your list, it should be. The world just feels larger there—the country, the rivers, the meals, and, most importantly, the fish. The allure only increases when you consider that it’s on the other side of the equator. Outside’s Grayson Schaffer and Nick Kelley, along with New Mexico-based photographer Ryan Heffernan, crossed one off the bucket list this April and got a taste of fall a few seasons early.
