Martín Aylwin was born in Santiago, Chile. Early in his life he discovered Fly Fishing in the little creeks and lakes of Chilean Northern Patagonia, in the Lakes Region. He started Fly Fishing at the age of 10 and it has become its passion since then.
He started exploring Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia with a rod in his hand at the age of 18. During University, he worked as a fly-fishing guide in Patagonia. Soon he fell in love of the breathtaking landscapes and adventures involved in fly-fishing and realized that photography was the only way of keeping memories for eternity, and so became a passionate photographer since then.
Martin is now a Fly Fishing Instructor, Certified Casting Instructor (CCI) and Master Caster Instructor (MCI) of the International Federation of Fly Fishers and RIO Ambassador. He travels the world with his wife Valentina, with a rod in one hand and his camera in the other looking for new fishing experiences to live, photograph and share. He has travelled to fish in Chile, Argentina, United States, Mexico, Honduras, Australia and New Zealand.
Part of his work has been published in Fly Stream magazine, Fly Dreamers magazine, RIO website blog, midcurrent.com, The Loop Magazine and FlyMage.
