“My wife Susan and I travel the world to hunt and fish.   Our stay at Yan Kee Way Lodge was one of the best all round lodge experiences in our lives.  In addition to terrific fishing, the variety of outdoor sport activities were a great alternative for Susan when she had enough fishing.  The outstanding dry fly fishing at El Patagon coupled with the food and comfort of Yan Kee Way was another highlight. Your wonderful and caring staff, at both lodges, are a secret ingredient, making them perfect. Susan and I are packing new salmon and trout rods to challenge both the giant King Salmon and trout again this year.”
