Betsy Bullard's spirit for fishing has an energy matched by few as seen in this video by Captains for Clean Water

Betsy has made countless memories out on the water, and now she's committed to ensuring everyone can do the same for decades to come. 

An avid fly angler, fishing tournament director, and self-titled "Swamp Witch," Betsy takes every opportunity to encourage those around her to do their part in safeguarding our waters, like the Everglades. 

She's a true leader in the fight for clean water, and with friends like Wesley Locke following in her footsteps (both on and off the water), the community's passion to join the effort is growing fast.
