"I first fished in Argentine Patagonia in 2006 with Greg Lilly from Montana who is known in the fly fishing industry. Greg been hosting trips with Esquel Outfitters for over a decade and he described Patagonia as "the way Montana was fifty years ago." To use a pun, I was hooked. Marcos, the owner of Esquel Outfitters, and his great guides, offer a wide diversity of fishing programs from turquoise clear rivers surrounded by the Andes mountains, to camping in the high desert along a private river, to lake fishing and to spring creeks.
I have returned to Patagonia every year since, and have fished out of other lodges in both Argentina and Chile. Yet, I have returned and fished six more times with Marcos and he has become a very good friend. You will not find a harder working guide whos only wish is that you enjoy yourself and catch plenty of trout. You will share many laughs and learn new Patagonia fly fishing techniques but what really separates Marcos from all the others is his genuineness. There is nothing phony about how he runs his operation. I have never felt like a client, but rather, he will make you feel like a friend."
