Mr. Patrick Prichard
About me 
I was born and raised in the PNW. I spent 3 years with Uncle Sam in Germany then got an education from the UW and Seattle U. I left paid work after 36 years at the phone company. I engaged with TU during the latter portion of a 15 year excursion to Colorado. At Cherry Creek Anglers I was proud to have been part of the great team that partnered to build Project HEART where trails and bridges allow anglers of all physical abilities, barrier free access to the Middle Fork of the South Platte. I deeply appreciate my mentors and colleagues in Colorado that shared their love of TU. My wife Sandy and I returned to the PNW in 2014 along with our Golden Retrievers to be closer to family and our 3 grandkids. My fishing experiences have been schizophrenic, wavering between endlessly swinging BBF’s on the Sauk, to begging (no, really begging) a 30 inch brown to nibble on a size 26 somethin-somethin, to casting the salt beaches for sea runs. I think I like sea runs the best, they have soul, even if they are a bit crazed.
