You didn't give much detail in your fly fishing lodge or what kind of budget you have. If it were me I would do the following to promote your business:
1. Build a web site. Do a google search for fishing lodges in Chile, Belize, New Zealand, etc. Make notes on what you like, don't like about these sites to help you decide how you want your site to look like.
2. Advertise your fly fishing business in the major fly fishing magazines. Along with this idea you might invite some of the fly fishing writers down to your lodge so they can experience the lodge and the fishing opportunities and then have them write a fishing article about their experience to submit to the major magazines.
3. Actively recruit the hosts of the major fly fishing shows to come visit your lodge and do a video segment on your local fishing and lodge experience.
4. Next winter buy vendor booths at all the large fly fishing shows and promote your lodge with brochures and video presentations.

Another idea you might consider to promote your fly fishing lodge is to become a sponsor of this web site.

Saludos Rodrigo,

I concur with the previous suggestions. The Simpson certainly has a great reputation and has been on my short list for quite a while.

How close are you to the lodge of Pancho Salas?

How are you "related to the flyfishing business"?

Buena suerte, que te salga todo bien.

PS: Careless of me. I apologize for not asking about your health and recovery. I hope you are much better.

Thanks for your help Mr Mcnerney and Mr Flywgn.
And thanks for asking for my recovery,i am very lucky i am in great shape again the most important i am alive after the doctors don´t give me a chance to live i recovery as a miracle.And i am starting again.
I am related to the business,because my cousin and my uncle they are probably the oldest fly fishing guides in the city,and very,very respected from all other guides,They will be my support to starting in this business and also many other friends ,chilean an americans,they work here as a fly fishing guides and they will be very happy to work with us and make money.
The lodge is called Rain singing lodge or cantodelluvialodge. and the web page is Canto de lluvia Lodge ,the page is still in spanish,but you can see how is it.
The lodge is located probably 10 kms from the Pancho Salas lodge.

Thank you very much!!
