El Monte

Wing Shooting is a tricky business, and nowhere else will you find a combination of great Dove and Pigeon shooting, matched with wonderful people, a comfortable victorian lodge, and decadent meals both at the lodge and in the field. Highly recommended.

    A Brief Bio

    Memo Stephens

    Memo StephensHi, my friends call me Memo, I hope you will too. I was once an executive in a Fortune 20 company, trapped in the world of working men. Now, I’m a published author, adventurer, and a dedicated wellness mentor. 

    The fishing legends and photos brought me here many years ago, and the landscapes, people, and endless trout water captured my soul. I now make my home on a quiet mountain side, over-looking gin clear water in the “Lakes Region” of Patagonia; and watch the trout rising to the evening hatch from my terrace. It’s an experience that needs to be shared, and I hope you find our articles and videos interesting.
