Fran Betters Memorial

Fran Betters Memorial

Fran was an icon in Wilmington and on the Ausable. His fly shop and its signature lady with a hook caught in her skirt was a place to go to find out how the river was fishing and what they were taking…and they were always taking the flies he sold you – Haystack, Ausable Wulff, Bomber among them. He and the shop are gone now but not the memories.

Good friends Nick and Nancy Groudas of Groudas Art were commissioned to create sculpted versions of these flies to decorate the memorial that was dedicated to Fran last weekend.

Congrats to N&N.
