Ava Befus has been involved in fly fishing since she was a young girl. Her family has always enjoyed the serenity of slipping away from the daily tasks and responsibilities of life to the peace of enjoying each other’s company while fishing. Today, fly fishing is still one of Ava’s favorite hobbies, alongside teaching friends and youth about the sport–so they, too, are able to enjoy an activity that can take them on many adventures, to many places, and into creation. She also enjoys being a part of her local Trout Unlimited chapter where she is able to learn about the importance of protecting the resource so that the sport of fly fishing can travel through many generations to come. One of Ava’s favorite things about fly fishing is being able to spend time in the outdoors, while creating special moments with family and friends and chasing after different species of fish which always present a new challenge, allowing her to continually learn about the sport.
