Patrick Duke

Patrick Duke is a Colorado born and raised native. His father introduced him to the fly rod at the age of eight and the tying vice and the age of 10. He moved to Gunnison for College where he received his Bachelors’ Degree in Art and Business and a PHD in Fly-Fishing. Patrick has spent the last decade exploring the Gunnison drainage and guiding year-round. He spends his winters and springs chasing trophy rainbow all over the state and tying flies for all his favorite summer hatches. He has an intense passion for the sport of fly-fishing and finds much joy in spreading his infectious addiction to anyone willing to listen. Teaching people the fundamentals and educating anglers at all skill levels is his goal as a full time Fly-Fishing Guide. To learn more about Patrick Duke and to view images of his artwork, visit!
