Patrick Badovinac


Patrick Badovinac has explored the Rocky Mountain west since his childhood days in southern Colorado. Often trading snowshoes for hiking boots or a horse, he’s bushwhacked over little known passes with camera and note pad to find gems sparkling in the form of trout streams or bugling elk.
With the keen inner compass of an explorer and the eye of an artist, he’s captured the nuances that nature only reveals to those silly enough to awaken before dawn to stumble along in the dark on an uneven trail.
His articles have appeared in several magazines and he has penned two books on the subject with many more to come. Patrick has won numerous photography awards including some from the Professional Photographers of America.
• Professional photographer and graphic artist
• Lectures on fly fishing and entomology
• May 2003 he released his first book, Fly Fishing Montana’s Missouri River.
• May 2006 released his second book, Fly Fishing the Solitude–Montana which follows the format of his Missouri River book giving pragmatic advice coupled with beautiful photography and illustrations
• Fly fishing guide for eleven years, nine of them on the Missouri, Smith, and Blackfoot rivers in Montana
• Tied flies commercially for shops in Colorado and Montana and still ties all his own flies
• Lives in rural Montana
