5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
My most popular travel packages are the ones my guests suggest. I have been exploring and guiding Southern Patagonia since 1997, and I still have not fished everything there is to possibly fish, so the ones my guest suggest to me are by far the most exciting and rewarding fly fishing adventures I offer.
