Travis Duddles
Travis was born and raised in Hood River Oregon, where he still resides. Growing up with some of the best Steelhead fishing in the world, Travisís love for pursuing Steelhead started at an early age.

This passion for the sport of fly fishing and chasing Steelhead with a fly rod developed into a career in 1992 when Travis opened the doors February 29th to The Gorge Fly Shop. Shortly after Travis started guiding clients for summer and winter Steelhead on many of the great tributaries to the Columbia River in the area.

For the last 15 years Travis has operated Gorge Fly Shop and guided clients from all over the world, helping them fill their dreams of catching Steelhead on a fly rod.


As the angling thought process, technology, and products advance, steelhead fishing is no longer considered a game of chuck and chance. We now have rods designed for specific fishing situations. Open up any fly rod companyís catalog and you will find a vast variety of Spey rods, single hand rods, and now switch rods. As anglers, we can find a weapon perfectly suited to our fisheries. Additionally, the fly line companies have stepped up to the plate with lines built to perform with the new rod designs. Skagit shooting heads for sink-tips and big flies, Scandinavian tapers for a more efficient casting stroke, multi-tip lines for versatility. Additionally, the fly companies have finally realized the need to offer flies designed by the cutting edge anglers of today. More so, the outerwear available today is more advanced than ever. Manufactures are producing more comfortable, longer lasting garments designed with the steelheader in mind. was created for the serious steelhead angler. The idea was spawned from an obvious need for a species specific web site that catered to those obsessed by the greatest game fish in the world.

A mix of Bass lovers to Steelhead Finatics. Outside of running the fly shop while Travis is out chasing steelhead, elk, or his children, they are the folks who keep the wheels turning. This site wouldn't be possible without their dedicated work.
