Let me start by saying I have never sent a note to an outfitter or lodge owner before, but I feel compelled to to do so this trip. I did not get to fish with you or really even speak with you much this week, but I feel I got to know you very well through the work you have done to create such an amazing experience for others. We have been to many varied places in North and Central America, your set up is truly unique and special. Others “Americanos” do similar more polished/upscale packages, but one usually has a sense of feeling of being an outsider or even at times a somewhat unwelcome invader. You have done a wonderful job seamlessly integrating the fishing packages and yourself into the community. It is obvious that you worked hard and cultivated an environment of trust, respect and goodwill in the rugged Baja peninsula. It Is also very apparent that you love all the people who work with you and they love you, which translates into the quests feeling completely welcome.
When the grind of everyday life is in full force, I’ll have the memories of LaVentana and will imagine a future trip full of the briefly majestic and chaotic shouts of “rooster, rooster!”
