T.J. Bettis - Owner

T.J. has been catching fish ever since he was old enough to hold onto a rod. His first experience with a fly rod was casting poppers to bluegill on a midwestern pond at age 12. It was clearly an addictive experience as he has now been fly fishing for almost 30 years.  He has a passion for traveling as well as fishing and especially enjoys when the two are mixed. He has fished for many different species in many parts of the world and rarely goes anywhere without a fly rod. His wife, Heidi, even let him take a few rods on their honeymoon, which included stops at some very nice water in Ireland and Austria. He has several children whom you will see in the shop in the years to come.

Favorite local fishing:
  • Hunting shore-crawling reds in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon.
Favorite non-local fishing:
  • Looking for bonefish anywhere they can be found.
  • Drifting dry flies for native brook trout in small, rocky streams in the Appalachian Mountains.
