Had the opportunity to visit the museum this weekend during their annual flyfishing day event. the museum is a classic- exhibits up to modern times. mostly cane rods with only one reference to fibreglass and graphite. the historical pics and the exhibits on famous flyfishermen, babe ruth, ted williams, bing crosby and the fishing presidents up to jimmy carter was especially interesting. the museum is worth the visit if you are ever in the Manchester vermont area. of course there is Orvis too.

I went there. had a good visit. Went to the Orvis factory, where they were building glass rods that day. Went to the store, where they told me to take any rod I was interested in out to the casting pond to try. Took out their Superfine glass rod, and here I am, now with a boatload of glass rods.

oh yes, they had their toys on display at the outdoor portion of the museum. takes a LOT of will power to walk away.
