I love trout fly fishing, backpacking, exploring, foreign travel and landscape photography. My new friends, Alvaro Ibanez and Gabriel Gygax (the Peru Anglers) made all of that possible in one safe, informative, fun and successful 4-day trip! I highly recommend you consider one of their many trip options. Please contact me with any questions or to hear more about my great experience. Who knew?!...Peru is now also a world-class destination for fly-fishing!
