Interview: Tyler Befus

February 12, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

In 2011 MidCurrent will be doing a lot more to help kids learn to fly fish. There’s no better role model than 12-year-old Tyler Befus, who has not only written two books on fly fishing but who also teaches other young anglers whenever and wherever he can. Aleksandar Vrtaric interviews Tyler for us this week.
“ALTHOUGH HE IS only 12 years old, Tyler Befus keeps amazing fly anglers from all around the world, whether they are just kids or adults with decades of experience. Young Tyler has every right to say that fly fishing is his life. Instead of crying in his crib, he watched and stalked fish from a backpack with his father Brad Befus, who is sales manager of Ross Reels/3M Sports and Leisure.”
