Guided DIY Fly Fishing Patagonia Argentina and Chile: We Do Fishing!

Today's Blog Post

In 1999, for 12 months, I DIY hiked and fished from Tierra del Fuego to Columbia, and from the Galapagos Islands to Brazil.  Since then, I have returned many times, managed a lodge, and now offer Argentina and Chile fishing programs.

As far as I know, I was the first to start a Patagonia guided DIY fishing business.  When I started, I purposely chose not to repeat or copy any existing Patagonia business models, books, films, or other.  Instead, I chose to create a team of real, DIY hearted people/guides.  Like me, no one on my team is a paid model, filmmaker, or pro-team member.  We have no desire to be social media fishing celebrities, or big dog booking agents.  You won't see us at shows, in films or magazines, pimping a lifestyle.  We simply take people fishing, and clients love what we do!

"Our services and pricing are in the middle -- between lodge and pure DIY anglers (i.e., dirt sleepers, who never hire guides).  We offer value for independent travelers/anglers, who prefer limited assistance, yet desire the very best fishing experiences via pro-guiding."  

Our clients...

- Fish with DIY expert, real people/pro-guides

- Save up to 50% vs. lodge services
- Fish between 8-12 hours per day
- Fish best waters at best times (maximum flexibility)
- Combine walk-wade, float, and camping
- Prefer no wine-dine services (no 1-2 hour shore lunch)
- Opt to bring their own food/beverage (we have iced coolers)
- Freedom to explore town activities, restaurants, bars, etc


We greet you at the airport; You stay anywhere in town; We offer a brief tour of the town (e.g., fishing license, grocery store, bank, ATM, bars/restaurants, etc).  Then we FISH -- it's that simple.

We offer In-Season and Off-Season Pricing
