Well, we’re down to the last couple of weeks of the season, but we’re not done yet. This week; Glen and John are joined by Al Borchers. Here’s Al’s write up from the Old AuSable fly shop page…
Al was born and raised here in Grayling and literally grew up on the river.
He has deep roots in the fly fishing community, his Grandfather, Al Borchers, Sr. created the Borchers Special (he was also George Mason’s caretaker) and his Great Uncle, Ernie Borchers created the Borchers Drake.
An often heard question in the shop is – “if you could only have one fly what would it be”? The answer is always the same – a Borchers. It’s no wonder that Al starting fly fishing at the age of 6.
As you might expect, Al’s a pro behind the vice too…no one ties a Borchers like a Borchers.
