First things first - Let's get to know each other. We start out by listening to you. What are your trip goals? Will you travel as a couple, with friends, family, all guys, all girls? How about accommodations and activities? Hard-core adventure with basic accommodations? Prefer luxury digs and fine food? How about both? Time-frame? Budget? We have a lot to talk about.
We get to work for you - Based on your preferences and date choices, we customize itinerary options and present them to you with pricing.
Get ready to go! - Once you select the travel plan you prefer, we collaborate to finalize the details and provide you with confirmations and documents. We're also here to assist you with pre-travel preparations.

"The solution to any problem -- work, love, money, whatever -- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be."
We couldn't agree more! And the truth is, we want to go fishing all the time, and we've spent our lives proving that. We recently spent two months in Argentina and Chile fishing the Patagonia region from north to south. Fabulous fun visiting our friends and partners. Amazing fishing, relaxing, and sensational food and wine. And just before that, we spent a month exploring the Maldives in search of new fly-fishing frontiers, and to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the islands and some of the top resorts in the world. And that has given us some fantastic new ideas just for you.
Don't miss out on all the fun. Get in touch to discuss what we believe are the best selection of fly fishing experiences available on the planet today -- from the saltwater flats of the Bahamas, Mexico, the Seychelles, and South Pacific to the glacier-carved river valleys in Argentina, Chile and Iceland, to renowned rivers and lakes in the U.S. Rockies and Alaska.
There is still time to be in touch to plan your ideal trip to Argentina and Chile for the best months of the 2024 season.
And the same for the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos, Winter/Spring 2024 - Fish with the best guides at the top lodges and resorts from Andros Island, to Abaco, Great Exuma, and Providenciales. And non-angling loved ones can soak up the sun on the beach, enjoy a variety of water sports, snorkel, dive, and more.
Our top picks for the 2023/24 skiing
Let us share our passion for skiing with you - powder, corduroy groomers, spring corn, it's all good. And the ski life; comfort and luxury after making great turns, après cocktails, a spa experience, and gourmet dining with fine wine.
From our home base in Jackson Hole, to Park City and other Western U.S. gems, to Canada's famed Whistler/Blackcomb, the European Alps, and the South American Andes, we offer skiing adventures to suit your agenda.
This coming season 2023/24 we'll be making turns here in Jackson Hole first, then heading over to Chamonix, Zermatt, Cortina, and Val Gardena. In the spring we'll be hitting the corn in Canada. Let's talk over your plans and make them a reality.
You dream it. We create it.
We've been enamored with the Indian Ocean islands since we led the first fly-fishing group to stay at the Alphonse Island Resort, Seychelles in January 2000. Since then, we've gone back too many times to count, and we love the casual luxury, relaxation, watersports, surfing, fine dining, and adventure activities as much as the fly fishing.
And there is no place quite like the Maldives. Arguably the best beaches on the planet are complemented by some of the world's most sumptuous remote stays. Each resort features private island experiences accessible by boat and/or air transfers from Male, the nation's capital. World-class diving and snorkeling over pristine reefs teeming with sea life, seemingly endless breaks for dynamite surfing, virgin fly fishing flats, and romantic over-the-water bungalows await you.
We just returned from the Maldives, and Dubai, where we enjoyed unparalleled service and adventure at JOALI Being, COMO Maalifushi and Jumeirah Ohlahali in the Maldives, and at Atlantis The Royal in Dubai.
Get in touch and we can share our experiences with you, and begin planning your ideal dream vacation to this special part of the world.

"Hey Stephen - EVERYTHING was stellar! Quite a journey to get to the lodge, so thanks for suggesting time in Santiago on the way down. Great way to relax and acclimate to the time difference. Your choice of hotels was superb, and the handling of transfers could not have been better. All in all, it was literally the trip of a lifetime. Even the weather was outstanding for the entire week. Can't say enough about the lodge, the staff and guides, scenery, and the fishing. Give everything and everyone a five star rating. Thank you for the pre-planning and advice/help throughout. Stay safe and healthy in this changing world. Look forward to working with you again!"
"Kim and Stephen - Can't say enough about your recommendations from hotels, to wineries, restaurants, and an amazing horseback riding experience. And the asado was to die for. Everything spot on and then some. You two seriously understand luxury travel. Our wine guide, Natalia, was the best we've ever had and her knowledge of the Mendoza wine country was mind-boggling. I'm already talking with friends about a return trip, and this time we want to visit Iguazu also plus spend more time in Buenos Aires. Can't wait to plan the next trip with you two."
"Hi Stephen and Kim! -Thank you for all of your help with the pre-planning process and making our arrival smooth sailing. The pre-planning guide you provided was the best we have ever received for a trip. Eleuthera was spectacular, even better than you described, from our hotel, to fishing guides, snorkeling and just doing nothing at all. Now we really want to take one of your hosted trips but we can't decide if we want Argentina, Chile, the Bahamas again or Iceland. Help! We know they are all different so the best option will be to do them all. Let's talk soon about which one first."
