Recommendation for James Drummondo, fly fishing instruction

If you want to have some fun, and catch some fish, I suggest you contact James Drummondo of Fintastic Adventures. James took three of us fly fishing in the Cajas. He supplied all the fishing gear, taught us about the equipment and the flies, and then he taught us how to cast. Within an hour, we were all catching large Rainbow Trout (around 3 lbs.). As a retired teacher, I was impressed by the way he taught. He was well prepared and he anticipated what our needs would be. He has an easy-going nature that allowed him to make corrections (and there were quite a few) in a supportive manner without making us feel stupid. If you have ever tried fly fishing, you know how frustrating it can be at first. James talked us through the frustrations, and by the end of the day I felt like I could fly fish at a basic level. For as good of a teacher as he is, perhaps his greatest asset is his personality. He is a genuinely nice person who is fun to be around. By the end of the day we were all joking around like we were old friends. In addition to fly fishing lessons, James leads hikes and fishing trips in Cajas National Park.
