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.

Burbot Fishing
Body: 

Lake Willoughby has long been known for it's lake trout, salmon and smelt fishing. But there are a handful of Vermonters drilling holes in the spring ice in search of a fish that most locals have never seen, burbot. The only freshwater member of the cod family, these odd looking fish can be found in several of the deep cold northeast kingdom lakes. And they certainly taste a lot better than they look.

Brighton State Park
Body: 

One of the outstanding attractions of Brighton State Park is its remoteness. The wild lands to the northeast and southeast of the town of Island Pond are suited to the angler, the hunter, or the outdoor lover who likes to roam away from developed roads or towns. Brighton State Park is located on the shores of Spectacle Pond. A sandy day use beach and bathhouse is located on Island Pond just a half mile from the campground.
