Three Rivers Ranch
There are few people lucky enough to be born into great trout country. An even smaller, fortunate few are able to remain in that land for the rest of their lives. Doug Gibson is one of the few.
2014 Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide of the Year
Pat Kane has been a fly-fishing guide in western Montana since the mid 1990’s. Growing up watching his dad fish the great rivers of Northern California and Western Montana, he had his first experience with a fly rod under the Big Sky in 1982. The challenges inherent to guiding keep Pat loving what he does as much today as he did in the 90’s. Customers respond his enthusiasm and, appreciating the great work he puts in day in and day out, return year after year.
A Bristol local, Patrick has been fly fishing since he was 10 years old. His resume reads as a lineup of credentials and accomplishments, including national recognition as a 2012 Orvis-Endorsed Guide of the Year Finalist, a 2006 graduate of the Western Rivers Professional Guide School, Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Guide since 2007, and a ClackaCraft Pro Staff member. For years customers have been raving about the services Patrick provides; his return clientele is a testament to his riverside manner.
