Founded in 2004 by brothers Juan Pablo (JP) and Jose Ignacio (Nacho) Portela, Blackriver Outfitters represents two brothers' dreams hatching reality.
Twins born in Montevideo, Uruguay, the Portelas moved to the Rio Negro countryside when they were only four years old. They grew up hunting, fishing and playing polo in Young, Uruguay, a small farming village, and grew to know the area well.
The brothers separated to attend university: Pablo moved to Switzerland for three years where he earned a diploma in hotel management before traveling the world to gain experience in the hospitality industry. Nacho stayed closer to home where he attended Universidad ORT Uruguay in Montevideo to study business administration.
Following school, Nacho also traveled the world playing polo. Eventually, the two returned home to Uruguay and decided to open an elite mixed-bag hunting and fishing operation in the fields, ponds and rivers that they grew up hunting and fishing.
With old-fashioned hard work, dedication and a vast understanding of arguably the finest mixed bag wing shooting real estate in the world, the Portelas developed Blackriver Outfitters and haven’t looked back since.
Nacho and JP have owned and operated Blackriver Outfitters for over 14 years now, and look forward to hosting your group to world class Golden Dorado fishing.
