The American Museum of Fly Fishing
Body: 

What do artist Winslow Homer, statesman Daniel Webster, author Ernest Hemmingway and baseball great Ted Williams have in common? They were all avid fishermen, who’s passion for the art of angling with a fly lives on today at the American Museum of Fly Fishing in Manchester, Vermont. From trout flies that were tied back when George Washington was President to Jimmy Carter’s favorite fishing tackle, the museum houses the world’s largest collection of rare, one of a kind fly fishing related objects. Which collectively document the evolution of fly-fishing in to the sport, craft, art form and industry that we know today. A visit to the museum is a great cure for cabin fever in the winter. And during the summer it can easily be combined with some fly fishing on the nearby Battenkill River.
