The Destination Angler Podcast

The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

Dec 3, 2020

Our destination is the lower Gunnison River and our guest is expert guide, Tim Patterson, owner of RIGS Fly Shop & Guide Service.  A veritable bug factory, the lower Gunnison and the Gunnison Gorge is known for eye-popping beauty, large trout, and outstanding fishing.   Opportunities for solitude in a true wilderness setting abound on this Gold Medal stream where only two commercial launches are allowed per day.  Listen while Tim dials us into the great diversity of water, abundant bug life, and top fly patterns for angling success.  Bonus: magical times to fish the Gunnison, upping your game on the Salmon Fly hatch, and how mules can make or break your trip!
