PATRICK F. DUKE
ANGLING ADVENTURE TRAVEL

Choosing a fly-fishing destination can be an intimidating endeavor, and planning for one is even more so. I have fished from RUSSIA to TIERRA DEL FUEGO, and finding new and exotic fishing destinations is a passion of mine. I know and understand the tribulations of destination angling, so let me guide you through your next angling adventure. Always remember that my hosting and booking services are %100 free, which means that whether you book a lodge directly or book with me, the prices are exactly the same.
That’s my promise to you.

    the Russian Far East and the worlds largest Rainbow Trout

  • GOLDEN DORADO 2021

    Tsimane, the premier Amazon destination for giant Golden Dorado

  • PALOMETA CLUB, MEXICO 2020

  • LOUISIANA REDFISH 2020

    the best saltwater fly fishing destination in the lower 48

PALOMETA CLUB, ASCENSION BAY

the #1 permit large in the WORLD

PALOMETA CLUB

the #1 Permit lodge in the World

Palometa Club_ hands down the best fly fishing program in Ascension Bay, and maybe the World for catching Permit on the fly. The fishery and guide crew are some of the best in business for accommodating ALL skill levels. Whether this is your first trip to the salt or you’re a legend on the bow, you will have an incredible week.

Every year I look forward to sipping margaritas from the beachfront bar, indulging in authentic regional food, and fishing with some of the most skilled and good-hearted guides in the game.

The Palometa Club has built a reputation as perhaps the most respected fishing lodge in the Caribbean. While recognized as the planet’s premier Permit fishing program, the flats of Ascension Bay offer anglers consistent opportunities for double-digit Bonefish days, Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, and more.

As host, my role is to use my seven years of travel/fishing experience with Palometa Club to assist in any pre-trip gear preparation and booking your travel itinerary. On location, I will act as your liaison between lodge management and guide staff, all of which have become family over the years, if anything should come up during our week of fishing I will make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. I will also help out with rigging and guiding when I can, but anglers will be fishing with two local guides every day.

TSIMANE, BOLIVIA

the primer Amazon destination for giant Golden Dorado

BOLIVIA'S GOLDEN DORADO

Tsimane is undoubtedly the best dorado fishery on earth.

Tsimane_   I can tell you from personal experience that this is one of the most incredible, one-of-a-kind angling adventures in existence. I am so thrilled to be given the opportunity to introduce six guests, during such a prime week, to possibly the finest Golden Dorado fishery in the world, Untamed Angling’s Secure Lodge.  The Golden Dorado as a species is powerful, beautiful, and entirely indigenous to this region and Secure Lodge system is as good as it gets.  The remote nature of the fishing in this area, the exotic wildlife, and the overwhelming beauty of the region all combine to create an unforgettable angling and travel experience that is without a doubt one of the most interesting and unique in the world of destination fly fishing.
   I find Dorado fishing incredibly unique because it offers a scenario that combines freshwater trout fishing challenges with saltwater big game excitement. These saltwater sized fish act much like a trout in where they lie and how they feed, and the river sizes will remind you of most western trout streams.  I still remember the first giant Golden Dorado I ever hooked, as this 25lb+ golden fish started jumping like a tarpon, three Emerald Macaws flew over my head, and hundreds of yellow and blue butterflies surrounded me while I walked down the bank to land my fish.  I was in complete awe and I still am. This experience, aside from the phenomenal fishing, and world-class lodging will make this trip something you will certainly never forget.
   Why June 4th – 11th? This Golden Dorado fishery is on a similar schedule as any American trout or salmon run river system.  Summer is the typical season to see large numbers of fish but as the season progresses the river drops and the fish become more inactive.  June is springtime or the beginning of the fishable season. Due to the cancellation of the entire 2020 season the week I have reserved will be the first week of fishing for the 2021 season.  We will be the first anglers to cast a fly into these waters in almost a year and a half. This will be a trip of a lifetime.
   The 6 days fishing and 7 night cost for Sécure Lodge program is $5,800 per angler plus $570 of Indian Association and National Park Entrance fees. The total cost of $6,370 per angler is based on shared double room and shared boat.  Please message me if you would like additional information on travel, gear requirements, and additional targeted species.
JUNE 4th – 11th

LOUISIANA REDFISH

world class Redfish destination, on the fly!

LOUISIANA MARSHLAND

The best Redfish on the planet with world class guides

This year’s Louisiana hosted trip was an absolute success. We were blessed with great weather, and the tides couldn’t have been better. We had three anglers on their first saltwater fly fishing trip ever, and nearly all twelve anglers caught their personal best Redfish on the fly! Our guides, our chef, our house all combined for an unforgettable experience.

FINALLY, the perfect program brought to you to experience one of the most underrated fisheries in the lower 48. For the last six years, fishing the Southern Louisiana marsh has become an annual tradition of mine, and I would love to show you what the hype is all about. I have teamed up with a legendary guide crew to catch the world’s largest Bull Reds during the absolute best time of year. I have secured the same dates and tides for 2020 to provide a killer 3-day/3-night package for ten anglers.

This 3-day/3-night stay with a personal chef based on shared rooms and shared skiff is only $2,360 per angler. If chasing huge fish in 1-3 feet of clean water sounds like your jam, this is the trip for you. Experience the Louisiana Delta with one of the strongest guide crews in the best fishery of Southern Louisiana and find out what catching 20-30lb Redfish on fly is all about.

WHAT’S INCLUDED
Accomadations, Guided Fishing,  Breakfasts, Cattored dinners, Wireless Internet; Laundry.
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED
Commercial air to New Orleans, Louisiana; Alcoholic beverages; Boat Lunches; Guide and staff gratuities; Fishing Tackle & Flies; Transportation from Airport to Lodge.
.  3-day / 3-night $2,360 based on shared boat and shared room  .
KAMCHATKA, RUSSIA 2021

Helicopters, Tanks and the biggest Rainbow Trout in the World

RUSSIA'S FAR EAST

Zendzur Lodge on the Zupanova River.

Last year’s adventure to the Kamchatka Peninsula was an absolute eye-opener to what truly untouched wilderness and angling adventure means. Since the moment we boarded the helicopter to return home, I have been thinking about my next cast on the Zhupanova River. Zendzur lodge is one of a kind experience, and words cannot describe the world-class trout fishing, the adventure, or the cultural experienced on a trip like the Kamchatka Peninsula. You have to see it to believe it. It is impossible to describe the feeling of excitement when the engines fire on the Russian made Mi-8 helicopter bound for one of the most remote and seldom fished trout streams on the planet. It is an emotion not felt with any other exotic angling adventure I have ever experienced.
As you may know, I have locked down a return trip week to Zendzur Lodge for August 24th-30th of 2021. There are only four spots left, and they will go fast. We are asking for a $1,000 refundable deposit per angler to hold our week in 2021.

The week-long Zendzur Hot Springs Lodge package is $6995 per person. Included in your angling package at the Zendzur Hot Springs Lodge are all ground and air transportation once in Kamchatka and all food, accommodation, and guides. Not included in your angling package at Zendzur are airfare and travel expenses from your home to Kamchatka, fishing license($100), medical evacuation insurance (required), and alcohol.
