Established in 1968 in Manchester by a group of passionate anglers, the American Museum of Fly Fishing is a nationally accredited, nonprofit, educational institution. The Museum serves as a repository for and conservator to, the world's largest collection of angling and angling-related artifacts, numbering in the tens of thousands, and is one of five museums in the state of Vermont to be accredited by the American Association of Museums. The collections and exhibits document the evolution of fly fishing as a sport, art form, craft and industry in the U.S. and abroad, dating as far back as the 16th Century. Rods, reels, flies, tackle, art, photographs, manuscripts and books form the major portions of the Museum's collections.
