Saw a roadside sign and decided to stop. Wow, are we glad we did! The museum is full of really special rods that are over 100 years old and many hand tied flies and pictures. Really worth the $2 entry fee.

Great museum to visit, even if you're not into fishing. Loads to learn and see, and the old photos of the area are not to be missed. The lady there is lovely and so full of information.......
