The American Museum of Fly Fishing is the steward of the history, traditions, and practices of the sport of fly fishing and promotes the conservation of its waters. Established in 1968 in Manchester, Vermont, the Museum serves as the home for the world’s largest historical collection of angling and angling related items including rods, reels, flies, tackle, art, and photographs dating back to the 18th century from the US and abroad. The Museum, a nationally accredited, nonprofit, educational institution, supports a publications program and books, catalogs, prints, art, and a quarterly journal, The American Fly Fisher, are made available to the public.
The Museum’s ongoing programs and exhibitions are supported by membership, events, and contributions. The Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (since 1995) and is one of only 4.5% of the museums in the U.S. with this designation.
