Jac Ford took up fly fishing in elementary school. By the fifth grade, he was tying his own flies and before graduating from high school, he was an avid fly-tier and fly-fisherman. Jac started fly fishing for steelhead in 1972 before getting the travel bug and setting off to experience other fisheries—including Montana, where he made quite a name for himself.
Jac is a longtime guide, outfitter and conservationist who’s endured a lifetime of lessons that many of us can learn from. In this episode of Anchored, I sit down to learn more about what fly fishing was like all those years ago in Michigan, and to hear more about his new book, The View From the Middle Seat.
This episode is brought to you South Dakota and their incredible hunting opportunities. In South Dakota, hunting is a shared legacy – something everyone can be a part of. See how at www.HunttheGreatestSD.com
