How to do Patagonia cheaply!

I just returned from my 10th trip to Patagonia and finally figured out the ins and outs of helping others frugal fly fishers that would like to go. If you are one of the 1% ers I have great recommendation on top Estancias that will cost you $1,000 per day plus tips, but for the rest of us that would like to go but feel the cost is prohibited, speak little of no Spanish, have cabin fever this time of year and would love to fly fish what Montana was like 100 years ago Patagonia is the place.
For those that would like to do it yourself and can speak Spanish I would highly recommend Barrett Mattison's book and I would be happy to help you.
For those that would like to have a bit more security and guidance I have a trusted friend that is willing to take groups of 4 and find a reliable rental car, lodging and meet with you each day to show you where and how to fish for $200 per person. Believe me this is the best deal going! You can see other options on his website. Just mention my name for the special promotion
If you are interested contact Juan Jose Serra through his websitehttp://www.flyfishingexpeditions.com/index.html.
Just for the record I do not receive anything for this, i just enjoy helping other anglers finding a great experience. Attached are a few photos from my last trip. If there are any fly clubs I have a complete presentation on Patagonia and one on BC Steelhead fishing on a shoestring. Best of luck!

Thank you for the information; I might use it soon. Two years ago I had fished Patagonia with my friends for 6 weeks; we were fishing self-guided, and drove about 3000 miles in a rented truck through both southern Chile & Argentina. I am looking forward coming back to the same area next year.

Do you have a friend around Terrace/Skeena that goes for $200/day?

The abundancy of buses or smaller shuttle vans there impressed me. Between that hitch hiking I found access very reasonable-though I put in my fair share of walking on cobble strewn roads...............

I did two weeks in Chile and Argentina for $700. If you live down there have friends in the right places and access to a vehicle it can be dirt cheap, there is lots of public water and good road access and food/lodging is cheap (we camped and stayed for free many nights). Speaking Spanish is a must though. Trip of a lifetime if you can swing it. Lots of 2-hander water too.
