    Hogan Brown and Patrick Mackenzie

    Hogan Brown and Patrick Mackenzie

    Hogan Brown hosts this episode and interviews fellow striper and bass guide Patrick MacKenzie on guiding, cooking, and taking the road less traveled. Hogan is a self proclaimed admirer of guides that take the road less traveled by pioneering new fisheries and finding places to guide off the beaten trail.

    Patrick is one of these guides. Growing up in Sonoma the natural course of action to start as a fly fishing guide would be the friendly confines of Putah Creek. Patrick took another route, guiding the Napa River and San Francisco Bay for stripers, and Lake Berryessa, Sonoma, Mendocino for spotted, small mouth, and Large mouth bass.
