    Anchored Podcast Ep. 196: Ryan Heitz, Behind the Fly Shop Counter

    Ryan Heitz has worked at Michael and Young Fly Shop for over twenty years. For me, Ryan was the shop guy I looked up to when I first started fly fishing. He was—and is—an incredibly knowledgable angler who rarely boasts about his accomplishments, yet offers an open ear to those looking to share their enthusiasm and stories.
    In this episode, I sit down with Ryan to ask him what it’s really like being the man behind BC’s most successful fly shop.
