Topic: Fly Fishing in Patagonia
Mark Foley, First Cast Fly Fishing: Eight years ago, I decided not to purchase or build a Patagonia fly fishing lodge. Instead, I started a fly fishing business-service called Guided DIY Fly Fishing. My partner thought I was crazy, and he asked, “How will we compete against lodges, booking agents, fly shop group travel, and what the heck is guided DIY fly fishing?” My reply:
“Our services and pricing will be in the middle — between lodge and pure DIY anglers (i.e., dirt sleepers, who never hire guides). We offer value for independent travelers/anglers, who prefer limited assistance, yet desire the very best fishing experiences via pro-guiding.”
