I grew up

in Germany, close to the mighty river Rhine. During that time the famous salmon runs were long gone, but it was my home water where I lost my fly fishing virginity.

Usually I spent

a fairly long time during summer holidays with my motorbike and fly rod above the arctic circle in Norway or Sweden. Years went by and then in the 90's I stuffed my backpack, bought an open 6 month fly ticket, and went to South America.
Ever since then I have only gone back to Europe to work in my "real" profession as a specialist in mechanical equipment and service technician, just long enough to get enough money for my next South America trip.

Things changed.

I still brought my backpack to explore the trout waters from Chile's north down to the fireland but now, I rather did it in worn out Chevy's and Econolines…

After living for years in Iceland I finally settled down in Argentine where Carolina, my wife, and I are running Latitud Sur Anglers.

Our philosophy is

organizing the authentic fishing trip, whether it's for Golden Dorado in Argentina's north, or for trout in Patagonia's remote regions.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
