Who is Pat's Premium Flies and what do I have to offer the fly fisher.

Hello. My name is Patrick Gilmore, the creator of Pat's Premium Flies.

For the last 40 years I have fly fished all over US, Canada and Mexico with most of my days fly fishing the Rocky Mountain Rivers and the Interior Lakes of BC. 


I have also spent many years in the fly fishing industry designing, manufacturing and supplying Canada with many top brands including Outcast, Scott Rods, Umpqua, Wapsi, Redington, Hook and Hackle, Water Skeeter and Filson Clothing just to name a few.

"Using all this experience I hope to help make shopping for your fly fishing essentials easier and give you the confidence you need to succeed while on the water."

There will be many new products to offer the fly fisher on my site as the months go by so please stop by often, refresh your browser and subscribe below for updates.

Tight Lines to you all and
thank you all for supporting local businesses.

On a personal note I have been battling Cancer for the past 10 years and hoping the last treatment has offered me a chance to continue to make a positive impact in people's lives.

Thank you for your ongoing support. 

Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society from sales of my products are made annually.

Please donate if you can.
