Sporting travel at its finest…
Founded by Rob McAndrew, we are based in Austin, Texas. Having been an outfitter for nearly two decades in Argentina, Rob maintains strong relationships with our South American partners. Merritt Choate, a native of North Carolina, handles our development efforts on the East Coast. Eugenia Brizuela, our experienced sales and travel coordinator, is in Buenos Aires.
Rob was co-owner for 19 years of one of the most respected outfitting companies in Argentina. He successfully organized and hosted groups at exceptional lodges for duck, dove, pigeon and perdiz shooting and for fly fishing and Red Stag hunting in Patagonia. This is where he and his team learned that an elevated attention to detail should be thoughtfully woven into every aspect of the client’s stay. These details, coupled with the finest sporting, lodging, cuisine and personnel were what kept customers returning year after year.
Rob enjoys the opportunity to personally meet with groups about their objectives and expectations. He and his team personally host many groups during their travels in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay to ensure that every detail is attended to during a group’s stay.
The team also scouts new and existing lodges and travel destinations on the ground to be able to provide in-depth and up to date information on each operation and travel destination. In addition, we have a dedicated team of diligent and professional travel coordinators and guides in Buenos Aires to ensure that each guest enjoys a seamless stay during their travels with us.
Our aim is to deliver the true experience of a lifetime and for each guest to conclude their adventure with the strong passion and desire to return. Many clients started coming in 2003 and have continued to come every year since.
Mayfly Cocker Sporting has gathered extensive knowledge of sporting and travel throughout Argentina, Chile and Uruguay and has a deep passion to share that with others.
We hope to organize an outstanding trip for you soon.
