Pat, Thanks very much for a terrific fishing trip which was a great success. This photo documents the simultaneous catch on The Madison River this morning. We will be talking about this day for a long time. Thanks for doing your part in making it a very special day!

Pat, a guide with 18+ years of experience, was patient, funny and reverent not only of the fly fishing discipline, but of the importance in maintaining the integrity of the fishery as well. I can truly state that he handled the fish caught with more care than most people use to handle babies! And catch fish we did! I had a tiny bit of fly fishing experience, and my 14 year old son had none. He had us landing trout within minutes of launching on the Madison River, and my son hooked a monster Rainbow Trout early on that could have won tournaments! The equipment was top notch, the boat was clean and organized, the lunch was very good, and we fished until our arms fell off. Is it pricey to do a float trip? Yes. But compared to buying everything, or even renting everything, for two people for a whole day with expert instruction and local knowledge and guidance, how can you go wrong? Highly recommended activity for two or three adults, or an adult and interested teenager!

While visiting the Yellowstone area from the Midwest, I was most looking forward to my guided fly fishing trip. It definitely lived up to my expectations. Making the reservation by phone was super easy, and finding the shop was fairly easy as well. It's conveniently right around the corner to the West entrance to Yellowstone park. I went on a half day trip with guide Patrick. It was refreshing to have someone cool, interesting and totally comfortable to talk to, and learn from. We did a quick lesson on land before we got in the boat on the Madison river. We fished for hours and Patrick made sure I caught a good number of fish to really make my learning experience worth while.

Pat is very good at what he does. Considering I am a seriously inexperienced fisherman, he made sure that my technique stayed clean and that I didn't learn any bad habits. He helped make sure that I was always casting in the right spots and that I was enjoying myself too. By the end of the night, I felt a lot more confident in my skills.
