Rachel Andras - Fly Fishing Travel

Fly fishing travel is nothing new to Andras Outfitters. As anglers, travel includes exploring backroads in search of Curtis Creek, chasing tarpon at “Location X”, and running first floats in Kamchatka. Whether the destination is over the hill or across the equator, the anticipation of a trip that sets the bar or the fish that leaves us speechless always stokes the fire. Experience proves that preparing for such an event often prompts questions as diverse as the fisheries themselves. Our collective backgrounds in guiding, instruction, camp management, lodge ownership, and travel sales span 35+ years and ensure expert answers and sage advice on each and every inquiry. At Andras Outfitters we connect discriminating anglers with/to the finest fly fishing lodges and guides worldwide.

"Frank and I have always regarded Rachel as our go-to source for all imaginable information about fishing -- where to go, when to go, what to bring, whoto call. But she proved her mettle many times over on a hosted trip to Chile. Her advance work and choices were meticulous. But more than just accompany us, she worked tirelessly and, yes, gracefully throughout the trip to make sure our experience was the best it could possibly be. She is respected and treasured by the fishing professionals she's met over the years and that alone would have made it a pleasure to be in her company, if just being in her company weren't pleasure enough, all by itself."  - Nikki and Frank Blum

"Hey Rachel! We just got back from Alaska, and man what an amazing place! We all caught huge rainbows in huge quantities, we all loved the guides, and we all loved the lodge. I've attached a photo of our biggest -- a 26 and 1/4 incher, the biggest our guide had netted all season. Thank you so much for all of your help. We couldn't have found such a great place without your help." - Andrew

“Our trip to Copper River Lodge, Alaska was unsurpassed in every way--a glorious week of dry fly fishing for trout, catching the first sockeye of the season, beautiful surroundings, wildlife sightings (bears, eagles, beavers and mink), gracious hospitality, comfortable cabins, super guides, excellent food and friendly guests. As always, Rachel insured that our travel needs and expectations were not only met, but were greatly exceeded. Thank you!” - Judith and Peter Brown
