Fran Betters

I spent two days last week on the Ausable River. I stopped at Fran's shop to meet him and pick up some of his flies.

The body might not be doing to well but his hands and mind are something. I watched for over two hours while he tied flies.

The fishing was great but it was some thing to watch a master at work.

I read that his shop is for sale due to his failing health. He's a last of his kind.

It is. I believe the asking price is around $600K includes building and some out rooms. Your right about the last of his kind.

While I was there he had folks in from 3 different countries as well as 5 different states.

His orders go all over the world.
