“In our past trips with Esquel Outfitters, we've been especially impressed with their guides. All these fellows - Patricio, Marcos, and Niko, speak excellent English. They know the streams, rivers and lakes of Patagonia like the back of their hand. Their intimate knowledge of these fisheries and the best fly fishing techniques to use on each has been a huge help to us and our clients. In talking to these guys, it's evident that they have fly fished extensively in Argentina themselves over the years. They all have over ten years of experience guiding fly fishing clients from around the world. More importantly, they are very personable and helpful guys. The kind of guides that I really enjoy spending a day with on the water!”

-- George Anderson, Yellowstone Angler, Livingston, MT



“Patricio is an honored friend who I have fished with and who helped in my clinics. I consider him among the elite, both as a fly fisher and a fishing guide. Good luck.”

-- Mel Krieger



“I had such a great time with the gang down there this year and will look forward to doing it again next year.”

-- Don Hobbs, Hobbs-Herder Advertising



“I would like to go fishing with Marcos again and loved the El Trebol. We had alot of fun. I'll be in touch to book a trip next year.”

-- William Coulson, Coulson Development



“That was a super trip with the Husts and they have said many times that 'That was the trip of a lifetime!”

-- Peter Heegard



“This time we would like to do the 4 day overnight float thru the big ranch followed by time on the spring creek, that was sure a great place!”

-- Don Lewis



“All the best to all, especially Marcos and Patricio, we had a great time needless to say!”

-- Hartley Neel



“Very good trip. Marcos and team very well organized, they have a strong team. The fishing and fish were better on the Rio Segilo, lots of fish and bigger than last trip. The Estancia was great and a total pleasure, my wife had said it was “big-time great” and camping on the Chubut was the highlight.”

-- Bill Phillips



"Nice work with the Garcia duo! He talked my ear off for one hour about the trip. Thanks a million as usual, and please tell Marcos I said thanks and Carlos could not stop bragging on you guys.”

-- David Leake, Blue Drake Travel



"It was a fabulous trip. We could not have asked for a better group of guides and staff. It has taken a little doing to go back to eating dinner before 11 PM. I also intend to give you guys some positive ink in "The Angler Reports.”

-- William Ludolph



"Patricio and Marcos were excellent guides. Both were patient with beginners. We enjoyed having a switch as they had different styles.”

-- R.C. Prant Hohokus, NJ

"El Trebol - For me: a little piece of Eden near the village of Cholila; a warm, friendly, atmosphere; lovely owners; great cuisine; a super location to access many rivers and lakes in the area; exceptional guides; incredible gardens and flowers in the midst of semi-arid desert; a place that I always want to return to, and that I would highly recommend to anyone, angler or tourist.”

-- Rhea Topping



"Just a note to thank you for the wonderful fishing trip! Bob McDonnell and I enjoyed our 10 day visit with you. We fished 9 days on 8 different rivers, all very fine. I don't know which I thought was the best..... Bob's 25 in., 8 lbs. rainbow was the highlight of the trip for the both of us. Patricio was a perfect host and guide. He is un pescador muy bueno and fun to be with.”

-- Sal Romano



“Beyond the wonderful fishing and sublime scenery, it was the Argentine guides and their localizied knowledge that made my experience complete. I didn’t just feel like I was fishing some other river with the same old guides, I really felt that I was experiencing Argentina.”

-- Scott Kelley
