My wife and I planned a bucket list trip to Patagonia in December of 2018. As we web searched for DIY fly fishing options in Patagonia, we were fortunate enough to find Mark Foley of First Cast Fly Fishing. My wife and I met with Mark in Denver. Mark gave us some good suggestions for areas to explore on our own, and he also set up three days of guided floating on the Collon Cura and the famous Chimehuen Rivers, with his partner and fantastic guide. His partner is a very knowledgeable capable guide, and he is also a lot of fun. We stayed in a Cabana in Junin de Los Andes for $40 USD/night, and we provided our own food to reduce the cost of our trip. Our two-person guided fishing was much cheaper than going with some of the expensive all-inclusive lodge’s in the area. We would highly recommend you speak with Mark if you are planning a trip to the area. We caught a number of nice Browns, Rainbows and even some Perca (Patagonian Bass) on the trip. We are looking forward to consulting with Mark on our next trip to Patagonia.
