Rivers across New England will be running at half flow this week with passing of Fran Betters.
Fran is a legend in the Adirondacks and the West Branch of the Ausable River.  Fran was an innovator in fly tying with the Ausable Wulff being his biggest claim to fame. He will be missed sitting at his desk spinning flies talking to everyone at the Adirondack Sport Shop that owned and operated for as long as I know.  Fran has had the greatest influences on my fly tying with technique, which he took the time to show me some and with the materials he used. Heaven has a special place for Fran.
