Felix Borenstein

I am the General manager & owner of Owen River Lodge. I established Owen River Lodge in 2003, almost 16 years ago.

I’m a passionate fly fisher and passionate about delivering the very best luxury fly fishing experience we can for our guests.

I’ve been fly fishing for over 25 years and have been lucky enough to fly fish in Montana, Idaho, Aitutaki, Kiribati, Australia and French Polynesian. Fly fishing is my passion.
