Awesome days in Argentina
Awesome four days in Argentina Esteban and his team did a great job in all aspects of our trip. He arrived on time and his drivers were careful and got us to some great fishing spots. He was professional in all aspects of the trip and very patient in relating to our small group. He knew the rivers and the best spots for fishing and delivered a fun and entertaining couple of days. Most importantly you could feel that he really cared about the experience for his clients and wanted them to have the best that Argentina has to offer. I can't recommend him highly enough. Book him for Patagonia fishing.

Great fishing, excellent guiding....terrific value for a very fair price!
Two of us fished hard for six days with Esteban Urban, the owner/operator of Southern Loops, in late January of 2019. Esteban picks his support team carefully -- drivers, hotel choices, etc. This matters, especially after a long float to some remote pickup site. His standards are high, focused very much on the fishing experience. HIs English is excellent, and he's a patient Instructor, if instruction is desired along the floats and wades. Long days of fishing, again if desired (we did!), and Esteban has the endurance and enthusiasm to please. Esteban chases the best fishing, and best conditions (wind can be a factor in Patagonia, so flexibility in put-in choices matter). With compliments to his wife, who packs the hefty lunch basket daily, stream-side lunches are hearty and welcome -- sometimes meats cooked over an open fire. We added one "camping" outing, an overnight on the river, making a two-day adventure. Don't skip this option, as you'll remember it forever! Book your days directly with Esteban, as no need for any middleman on this one. He's honest, fair, and reliable.
