Dear Luis,

As you know, my job at Sage takes me to a lot of places around the world and I almost always try and get some fly fishing in at one of the local destinations or lodges.  I must say it's taken me to some of the most amazing places on the planet. I must say that you have created what I believe is simply one of the very best destination lodges on Planet Earth.  The setting of your lodge, the comfort, the attention to detail, the staff, the room, the fishing, the scenery, the guides, the food and, most importantly, the feeling of your place are all just simply the best.  All the very best.

Your friend,

Luis Antúnez is the right person in the right place.

If you fly fish, there is a land where white mountains scrape the clouds, where grass fields sing in the wind, and where clear waters rush to the sea. Every angler deserves, at least once in their life, a taste of Patagonia. They say that life is a series of significant events. The Salmo Patagonia Lodge is such an event that will live with you forever. Luis, an angler's angler, and his Salmo staff offer the best of themselves and their country.  Here is a wild and beautiful land, gracious people, delightful food and drink.  And all this in a land of varied and superb angling.

Having just returned from a wonderful week at the Salmo Patagonia Lodge.

Luis Antunez has created an incredible Salmo Patagonia Lodge.Attention to detail is evident everywhere one looks - from the amendments in each room, the decorations throughout the lodge, the views from the compound, to the quality of food at each meal. The accommodations are first-class in every respect while remaining inviting and providing comfort after a long day in the field. Luis provided tremendous fishing opportunities each day. We fished rivers and private lakes for Brown and Rainbow trout using both nymphs and dry flies. We caught some of the largest fish of our lives and had a GREAT time fishing with the very entertaining guides. I would highly recommend Salmo Patagonia to any fly-fisher interested in experiencing Patagonia at its finest. Exclusive access to private fishing waters, with competent and entertaining guides, while staying at a truly world-class resort all combine to provide an experience never to be forgotten.

Best Regards,

Luis, I wanted to thank you and your staff again for a memorable trip!! Mike and I caught the largest Brown's of our lives. The lodge staff was excellent as was the food and services.

Also, thanks for your casting lesson and matching my ability with the correct rod and line. You should be very proud of the 5 star fishing lodge and program you have developed!!!

Kindest Regards

Hola Luis!

We enjoyed your wonderful welcoming and the way we felt 'taken care of'' the whole time.  We became friends with so many people through you, and it was that experience that was even more important and gratifying than the fish!  Give my best to your 'papa', he managed to teach Lin more about casting in one day than I have tried teaching her for years!  No surprise there!

We'll be back soon.

The Lodge was first class, the accommodations and food excellent, and the fishing, oh the fishing. As you know, I have fly fished in Alaska a number of times (as well as other places). But getting to fish with you and the other expert guides was an extraordinary treat. The fisheries were fantastic, and the entire experience made for the trip of a lifetime.  Can't wait to get back, hopefully next year but hope to travel back to your Lodge every year for the next couple of decades,

Best of luck with the rest of the season.

Luis Antunez is the first man I ever meet be able to catch a giant tarpon on his first cast.

Dear Luis,

Can you imagine release more than a hundred browns on a dry fly, 5x tippet, two pounds average, on a single day and in a solitude place?

Thank you Luis, I will come back!
