We found this place quite by surprise while walking through Manchester. I care little about fishing but like museums and this was a gem. It is worth seeing for the architecture and beautiful displays. Fun little gift shop too.

Great place to see if you are interested in fly fishing. Even if you aren't, it is a very visually interesting place. Yoshi, the Deputy Director does most of the design and painting. Very talented guy.

I wrote an article about it for the Albany Times Union, worth checking out even if you are not much into fly fishing, very impressive collection of publications and artifacts.
