ABOUT US
The Founder

Since the 1980’s, Brandon Miller has been exploring the North American continent in pursuit of the big game, waterfowl, & fisheries that inhabit its land. Growing up in Texas with all its diversity as his backyard offered up a unique, experience dense, opportunity for Brandon to chase a wide range of game in all sorts of changing environments. After graduating from Texas Tech University, he continued to pursue his outdoor obsession as he moved around the country, from the Pacific Northwest to the East Coast, fly-fishing everything wild that it had to offer. Brandon has always considered his faith in God and deep love for the outdoors as his two biggest drivers in life. With that in mind, he founded The Good Sir and started development with a focus on making high quality outdoor gear & apparel.

A River Runs Through It

“In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman"

Theodore Roosevelt

"There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children's children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred."
