Hello! My name is Santiago Bonilla, and I will be one of your friends in the camp and an innovative, interesting guide on the river. I have been fortunate enough to have fly fished all over the world and have seen some pretty amazing things on the fly. From Bonefish and Tarpon in Belize or the Maldives, to monster mouse-eating rainbows in Kamchatka, and beautiful browns and rainbows eating delicate fly patterns in the Patagonia of Argentina and Chile, I have fished many different techniques and I try as best I can to bring that experience with me to Alaska and the Mulchatna Watershed. Something about the salmon runs in Alaska has always brought me back, and exploring the ecosystems and beginning to understand the cycle of salmon in the state continues to fascinate me.
I love to learn and try new things and am always open to suggestions and recommendations, so please, don’t be shy about voicing your opinion. Whether it be fifty-pound king salmon in the beautiful strong waters of the Mulchatna, or big rainbows high up on small mountain rivers, you can always trust me as your net man. I am Wilderness First Responder Certified, so not only is safety a top priority, but you should feel as though you are alongside competent hands in the remote bush of Alaska. I look forward to meeting you and thank you for choosing Alaskan Remote Adventures.
