Solitude Steelhead Guide Service L.L.C is owned and operated by Bob Packey.  He has over 30 years of experience chasing “silver bullets” up and down Steelhead Alley.  From the time he caught his first lake run fish on October 1st 1984 , he has pursued them with relentless obsession.  If you have ever spent a day on the water with Bob, you can attest to his passion, knowledge, and ability to educate.  If he isn’t out on a steelhead tributary somewhere, he is busy running,  tying flies and preparing for his next adventure.  He is a real steelhead addict!
