  1. Congrats to Patrick Fulkrod Guide of the year. Well deserved. My son and I spent a day on the water with Patrick last summer and while we don’t typically count numbers, Patrick put us on ~ 40 of the best trout fishing in a day I had ever experienced. Looking forward to another day with Patrick this August. Way to go Patrick

  2. All of the guides at Rocky Mountain Outfitters are honored to be among these great finalists. We are proud to be apart of the Orvis Family

  3. Congratulations 2014 guide of the year, Patrick Fulkrod!! I don’t know of anyone more deserving of this award. Patrick truly loves what he does and it’s reflected in his performance. This has been not just a love of the sport and adventure of fly fishing, but a passion for it. He has loved all things fly fishing since he was just a little boy. I can tell you this and express my pride in his accomplishments and my great love for him because I am his mother.

  4. Congratulations, Patrick, on Orvis Guide of the Year 2014!!! Well deserved!!!
    Looking forward to fishing with you soon!
