Fly Fishing Junin de los Andes Argentina: Family and Friends Fishing

If you are a company like Coca-Cola, on a daily basis, you have millions of repeat clients.  If you are running a DIY (do it yourself) fly fishing business, your ability to obtain repeat clients is a challenge. We are faced with a season that is only six months long, but the majority of clients traveling to this region of the world, only do so in a ninety day window.  To complicate matters, now add in seven local lodges, coupled with hundreds of booking agents all selling the same thing -- fly fishing Junin de los Andes.  In a market dominated by industry giants, some may wonder why anyone would choose a DIY business model; it's a fair question.  I don't think I chose the model, it chose me.  In other words, myself and my partners are true DIY anglers and guides -- we looked at who we are not, and quickly discovered that we are not lodge owners, chef's, house-keepers, or booking agents (we never want to be any of these things).  We then focused on our talents and skills, and finally decided to execute a simple plan -- take people fishing!  So, is the DIY model working?  On average, we have thirty to fifty clients per season -- it's quality vs. quantity. And get ready for this, we are beginning to see more repeat clients.

I believe we are getting a steady flow of clients, and now repeat clients, because our programs offer:

  • Our repeat client pricing program is a fair system that offers tremendous value.
  • You have complete control over your schedule -- we do not operate like a lodge.
  • Our clients know they are working directly with the owners, local experts, and people who are truly committed to their profession, family and community. 
  • Lastly, we focus on fishing -- not 600 count Egyptian cotton sheets, or food prepared by a Paris trained chef. We house you in safe-comfortable lodging, and no one goes hungry.   

Family and Friends

  • Tom and Carl have been fishing buddies for over 40 years.
  • Carl brought is two son's. 

Tom and Carl, they are back for their third time.  On this trip, before fishing Patagonia, they added a few days of Golden Dorado fishing.  Plus, Carl brought his two sons with him.  What a great experience for him and his two sons.

Clients are now taking advantage of our Buenos Aires based guided DIY Golden Dorado programs.  In just three hours, this could be you!

Guided DIY?

Maybe it's just in my head, but I fear many potential clients pass us up because they do not understand, or are fearful of what guided DIY programs are all about.  As I mentioned before, our programs are all about a fishing experience -- a chance to fish with family and friends.  If you have any questions or doubts about our programs, please read client testimonials and contact us directly.



To all of our clients, especially repeat clients, we THANK YOU.  Your patronage directly effects the lives of people/families living in the communities we fish.  Why/How?  It's pretty simple; we only work with local guides and business owners, who support our guided DIY philosophy. So, every step of the way, you are working directly with a person who is committed to his/her profession, and is dedicated to their community.

Thanks for reading.  If you are ready for an adventure, we are ready to book your next Argentina fishing and hunting trip.

Saludos Amigos
