Fly Fishing Museum Has New Website
Continuing to share the legacy of fly fishing as well as to expand the sport, the American Museum of Fly Fishing (AMFF) based in Manchester, Vermont, has launched a new, highly informative web site. The site features highlights of the museum’s exhibitions, permanent collections, educational resources, and upcoming activities.
In order to further serve the fly fishing community, the museum will also host a number of fall events including their annual Museum Free Day, Fly Fishing Festival, and Heritage Award Dinner.
According to Catherine E. Comar, Executive Director, “Over 50 million people fly fish around the world and that number continues to grow. As a steward of angling history, as well as a resource for active participants, the American Museum of Fly Fishing strives to inspire anglers to engage in, advance, and promote the sport.”
Continued Comar, “Additionally, we hope that our new site will be a vehicle to introduce, educate, and inspire more people to discover the joys of fly fishing. As the lead national museum and advocate of fly fishing, we want to be the place people come to learn all there is to know about this great sport.”
The newly launched website can be found at www.amff.com.
The museum will also host several events this fall to further their goal. The annual Fly Fishing Festival kicks off October 13th at the museum grounds in Manchester, Vermont and will
feature casting competitions, fly tying demonstrations, vintage tackle, and educational presentations. This always popular one‐day festival attracts hundreds of enthusiastic fly fishers.
