Our group travels to fairly remote places to fish, generally salt water casting, generally Pacific islands. We’re casual. However, we get particular regarding certain things - fishing, food, wine selection and aquatic habitat. We wanted a new experience so we signed up with Pablo and headed to Patagonia. He blew us away. He knows the rivers like his back yard. He’s patient. He listens to you expound about how much you know. Then despite what you think you know, he sets you up appropriately for the particular river condition, the drift or the pool. Listen to him and his great guide team. Relax. Zen it out, and you’ll catch fish. Our Collon Cura River three day float was a world class experience. We were treated like royalty. In the evenings, we’d drift into camp already set up by his master crew. If you haven’t experienced Pablo’s crew, you don’t really know what fine camp cooking is. A full lamb racked out over the coals, just to tease you. Did I mention we never ran out of primo small batch Malbec’s? Camp sites were cleared with zero left behind. There were all levels of fly fishing experience in our group. We all caught more rainbows and browns than we deserved. The really experienced guys caught rainbows until they were worn out. Then we get to Estancia Arroyo Verde. Think old world hacienda on property that fronts 10 miles of the Traful river, arguably one of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in the world. The Estancia offered remarkable hospitality and a needed injection of civility following three days on the river with the wild boys. Fishing the Traful is hard work. Banks are close in and grown in. The river can be very fast. Wading is tricky. As one of our crew put it, it’s like walking over slimy bowling balls. You need to spot your fish, and then hunt it. Pablo and his guide team were with us every step of the way and set us up very creatively. Traful fishing isn’t about the numbers caught. It’s a day’s work for a fish of a life time. You will not be disappointed. So don’t even think about it. Book with Pablo now for next season. Just do it while the rivers are still accessible. Getting back to reality has been tough. We’re all still lost in our thoughts in Patagonia with Pablo and we never want to leave.

If you are contemplating a fishing trip to Patagonia you could not do any better than to book with Pablo. My group spent 10 days on two watersheds and the outfitting was sensational and enjoyable. Pablo and two other guides had it all down, from the riverside camping to the 1st class estancia accommodations. I would go with no other after spending time with these pros. Wonderful people to spend time with!

Pablo is indeed an accomplished angler with extensive knowledge of his rivers. He knows where the trophy fish reside and how best to get acquainted with them. However, that is just one of his many attributes. He runs a world class organization that puts you at ease from the moment you arrive in Argentina till you depart. Airport pickup, lodging are no worries, just enjoy the fishing ... and his truly dynamic personality. He is a very funny dude. The fishing is fantastic and the ten days with him are a treat.

For those non anglers, Pablo has friends in St Martin who can take you birding, hiking and riding who are very knowledgeable and most entertaining. Go before it's too late! Alex Smith

From the moment you arrive in Buenos Aires until you depart, Pablo makes sure that you are taken care of very well. Taken from one airport to the other with help with your baggage and help at the check in points, the language barrier and worry is erased. We have made two trips with Pablo and both have been unforgettable. We returned with friends who were so impressed they want to return as soon as possible. Whether a big brown trophy hunter or an angler who likes to catch lots of fish, Pablo has the right river for you. If you are a non-angler, the experience is incredible. The best birding guide in Argentina can take you birding for a day or more, an incredible hiking guide with knowledge of plants, animals and terrain can either take you on a hike, ride or drive that is eye opening. Both gentlemen provide knowledge and laughter that make you want to come back, even without wetting a line. The lodges provide comfort and care that is 4 stars plus. Each one has something to offer the visitor and those in charge make you feel right at home. There is riding, hiking and perhaps a dip in a lake or river at each. Need I say more. An experience to be enjoyed by fishermen, non-anglers and all who love gorgeous scenery and the warm loving people of Argentina.
