Testimonials

  • Very helpful will answer any of your questions no matter how silly. I'm not from the area and was looking for some direction and advice and I did not leave disappointed. I will visit this fly shop every time I return to bend from now on. 

    - Mike Myers

  • My husband and I really appreciated Peter's time and, yes, patience today when we took fly fishing 101 with him. I hope that this is the start of a new way of seeing rivers, bugs, and fish!

    - Felice K

  • Always get great service, plus a warm welcome, fishing/casting advice and great stories! Great fly tying tips as well. 

    - John H Eberhard

  • My wife and I visited Bend in early August for a few days of fly fishing. We enjoyed catching our fair share of trout on the Deschutes, the Metolius and the Crooked. A key to our success was the great professional and personal support we received from Peter and eveyone on the staff. The Patient Angler team gave us a detailed briefing of the fishing conditions in each river, the best flies and techniques to use and the best times to fish. We also purchased two superb pairs of wading boots to replace ours, which were badly worn and in a state of disrepair. If you are a fly fisher in Bend, the Patient Angler is a must.
