About Esquel Outfitters


Macos Yaeger, owner & head guide for Esquel Outfitters, has been guiding in Los Alerces National Park, Esquel, and Rio Pico regions since 1990 (28 years!).  He pays great attention to details and is the master at handling the logistics of a fishing trip.  The focus is, and always has been, on you, the angler.  I could go on and on about credentials and experience but I would like to relate to you a true story that I think shows Marcos's customer focused way of running his operation. An example.  A few years ago my friends and I had a 3 day float trip planned on the Chubut.  About 45 min. into our 1.5 hour drive, the three guide trucks with rafts in tow, came to a sudden stop off a dirt road.  Marcos had heard over the radio from the guys deploying the supply rafts that the river was high and dirty.  He then gets on his Sat phone (cell phones rarely work in these remote areas), makes a reservation at a nearby private lagoon and off we go fishing (the photo on the home page of Peter and Marcos is from that day).  For us anglers it was somewhat disappointing but a very easy adjustment for us to make.  I did not really appreciate or understand what he had done until later that day.  Let me explain.  Firstly, most outfitters are not in constant contact with all the other vehicles and never would have known the river was high and dirty until they arrived.  Very few carry Sat phones and to turn around 2 supply vehicles with rafts, 3 days worth of food, tents, chairs, and tons of gear, plus the 5 drivers required to move the 3 guide trucks and 2 supply vehicles 35 miles down river to the take out is not a small undertaking.  I have been working in this business for 25 years now and I can assure you that once all the wheels are in motion that most outfitters would have just gone forward with the trip, cursing their luck that there is no way to predict mother nature.  Well, not Marcos!  At huge expense, he turned everyone around and sent them back to his lodge, El Trebol, to unpack. THAT is the Esquel Outfitter difference!  Again, trust that you are in good hands with Marcos and his team!
