Who I am?

I was born in Spain. After university, I worked in different places and traveled around the world trying to make my passion-fly fishing-my profession and way of life.

I first came to Coyhaique, in the Chilean Patagonia area, 25 years ago.
When I saw this special place, its natural beauty and incredible fishing opportunities, I decided try to build my dream here.
Today, this dream has come true. Year after year, I help people from around the world turn their own adventure fishing dreams into realities.

The Salmo Patagonia Lodge that I built is located in the heart of Patagonia, on 12 hectares of land. We are situated atop a high mountain plateau, alongside a national park of virgin forest filled with unique flora and fauna.
In total, we own or lease more than 10,000 hectares in the Region, which allows our guests to fish private access waters in total solitude.
We can offer you; brow & rainbow trout (plus their respective migratories species), king , chum & silver salmon and brook trout.

We are about six miles from downtown Coyhaique, a quaint town of 55,000, surrounded by mountains, and the capital of Chile's Region XI.
From the lodge windows, you can see the picturesque town, the majestic glaciers of the Andes and the Simpson and Coyhaique River valleys.

Guests at the Salmo Patagonia Lodge receive my wife and my personal care and undivided attention.
The goal of our lodge's staff is to ensure that your experience with us will be unforgettable and that every one of our guests will want to return.
I think we have achieved that goal, as more than 70 percent of our guests return season after season.

The lodge has a comfortable lounge, two dining rooms, a sauna, SPA, swimming pool, library, fly tying room, Wi-fi, satellite TV, phone, cabins, car rental, ATV'S rental, massages, hydro-therapy, central heating, air conditioning, music, superb cuisine, tourist activities, wine room, bar service, fireplace, barbecue house, private lake, gardens... (Please check the lodge's website in order to see the complete list of services.)
Souvenirs and personal items are available in the lodge's shop. Native Chilean woods used in the construction of the lodge lend a warm ambience to the natural setting.

But the greatest asset of my lodge is our hospitality.
I can guarantee you that your every need will be looked after during your stay with us and that by the time you leave, we will have become good friends.

Happy fishing and hope to see you soon in Patagonia!
