Fly Fishing Argentina: From Vermont to Junin de los Andes

WOW -- it feels extremely good to receive such high praise.  Guided DIY fishing programs work!  

Client Testimonial:

In 2014, we had the good fortune of working with First Cast Fly Fishing during a visit to Patagonia Argentina. By the time we met Mark and learned about FCFF, we had already planned most of our trip to Patagonia. However, we were very interested in Mark's unique Do-It-Yourself approach to fishing and traveling Patagonia, something he has mastered through his own experience traveling the world. We re-arranged our plans to include some time with FCFF on our first visit to Patagonia.

Prior to our trip, Mark spent time with us via Skype to learn more about our interests in Patagonia. He then tailored a trip that provided us with the experience we imagined (and more), and was a perfect fit for our budget. While fly fishing was the focus of our trip, we were very grateful for the opportunity to learn more about Argentina and, specifically, Junin de los Andes. Mark was an incredible resource. We felt that our experience immersed us in the local culture in a way that cannot be accomplished through most travel "vendors." It was a very unique, authentic approach to experiencing Argentina. Our time with on the Rio Malleo was one of the highlights of our 2014 trip.

In early December, 2015, we returned to Patagonia. Once again, we worked with Mark to create a memorable experience. We spent three days with his guides on the Rio Chimehuin. Mark arranged every detail, including transportation from the airport, our floating/camping trip on the Chimehuin, and an amazing stay in the heart of Junin de los Andes, at one of his private apartments.

FCFF's guided DIY trips are a great way to experience Argentina (and other places). Mark has spent many years working and living in Patagonia. He and his team have created an extensive network of private lodging, guides, and other resources that help provide a unique, affordable experience for their clients.
