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.

To quote one of Pat’s clients, “Even though the fishing conditions weren’t the greatest or easiest (water starting to drop and 90F+ air temps) our guide worked his hardest to put us on fish and give us a truly great experience. Pat was great with the both of us, letting me roam and enjoy my solitude, while spending the extra time giving my wife the extra pointers and instruction to help her become a better angler.”
