At Teton Valley Lodge we pride ourselves on having excellent guides who are experts on our local waters. All of our guides are dedicated to the cause of helping you catch more fish! Passionate fly fishing gurus, they are here to give you the best possible experience. Our guide profile series gives background information on our team, and begins with Lead Guide Patrick Hogan.
Pat is an experienced angler, a husband and a father. When he isn’t guiding he’s better known as Mr. Hogan at our local Middle School. He also coaches girls basketball and their team is darn good! Known for big wins across the state, these girls are a force to be reckoned with under the direction of “Mr. Hogan.”

Taking bets with all the guides that I would be the first one back to the lodge one day. Dave Max got 2 flat tires one on the way to the river and one home, I passed him for the win.

The whole experience but I love watching fish eat dry flies.
Fish do not care about a good cast.. MEND
Practice your cast before coming. Just enjoy the experience. It’s always better yesterday and tomorrow so enjoy the now.
Lower Narrows, just really cool to have your own private Idaho. I really enjoy the water there as well, fun little spots to hit.
Tough question probably my dog, cold beer, and dry flies
