Patrick Black-Dale Bio

Patrick grew up in Colorado Springs, CO, where he explored Garden of the Gods, rode his bike until dark, and wet a line from time to time. When he graduated high school Patrick hopscotched west into the Rockies in search of adventure and purpose in the natural world. While he was attending Colorado Mountain College in Leadville, CO, his passion for guiding was discovered. Pat first started guiding whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River in the summers, and dog mushing in the winters.

Nowadays you can find Patrick on the Gunnison river with clients as a fly fishing guide, just south of Crested Butte, CO. In the wintertime he runs sled dogs in Steamboat Springs, CO. 

 In addition to the outdoors, Patrick loves spending quality time with family and friends, traveling, dabbling in yoga, and eating great food.
