USA vs. Argentina

In the USA, we focus on fly casting instruction/lessons only.  In Argentina, we offer several unique fishing and hunting experiences.

New USA Location -- Fort Collins, Colorado

In June of 2019, we began operating in Fort Collins, Colorado.  Our core beliefs and mission: 

We believe fly fishing is an intellectual, physical, and emotional activity.  
As a result, we have developed a series of fly casting classes (e.g., 1X, 2X, 3X, etc) based on the principles of  neuroscience and Emotional Intelligence.
  
We call it the E.I. Fly Fishing System™ Our instruction model is built upon steady, progressive development, and is strongly rooted in a 21st century educational platform, which focuses on the science and art of fly fishing.

    Over 200 years ago, my family emigrated from Ireland to Tilting, New Foundland. Tilting is located on Fogo Island and for decades the Foley’s earned a living as in-shore Cod fisherman. I have visited Tilting, but I grew up fishing trout streams and the coastal waters of New England.  My love for fishing and adventure travel has led me to places such as Alaska, British Columbia, Montana, New Zealand, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Africa and more.  In 1999, I spent one year DIY fishing and hiking the Andes mountain range (from Tierra del Fuego to southern Columbia, and from the Galapagos Islands to Brazil).  Since then, I have regularly returned to fish South America, and at one time, I managed an Orvis endorsed fly fishing lodge in Argentina.  My fly fishing adventures around the world have provided many wonderful life experiences. As such, I love to share my global fishing experiences by hosting anglers on national and international trips. When I am home in the U.S.A., I am busy teaching, and doing my part to make my fishing community a better place.
