Big Better Flys

If you've ever fished an Ausable Wulff, Bomber or a Haystack,
then you've fished with part of Adirondack history.
Big, buggy and buoyant, they were specifically designed for fast turbulent water.
Created by Francis Betters, they epitomize fishing on the West Branch of the Ausable River.
Nestled next to Route 86, by the bridge, in Wilmington, NY, these sculptures stand over 
the West Branch as a tribute and memorial to Fran Betters, an Adirondack legend. 

You can learn more about the ongoing memorial project on their Facebook page.
