This past February I spent the entire month in Chile fly fishing some of the most pristine and remote river systems the country has to offer. I fished everything from small remote streams, to large rolling rivers, and secluded glacial lakes, in search of trophy class brown and rainbow trout. Fishing and hosting trips to Chile has been a life long dream that has now become reality. In the off season between my guiding duties with Steelhead Alley Outfitters and the West Branch Angler, I will be personally hosting each trip to the remote Picacho Lodge in Southern Chile in 2012.

As many of you know I take my guiding and client experiences very seriously, and I work with two of the most reputable outfitters in their specific regions for this reason. I have spent the last 20 years of my life guiding, and my offered trips to Chile will not be the commercialized for the masses type trip typically offered by a fly shop... You will be staying in rustic comfort, eat and drink like a king, and fly fish remote streams and lakes that are not shared by other outfitters. I want you to experience Chile the way I see it, a place a fly fishing guide goes on his/her vacation.
