It's a store with the things from their catalog. Maybe if you're into fly fishing it's special. I don't know. But even for that, there wasn't much to see. They advertise a tour of their rod factory, but that's just once a day at 10am....More

My husband is a flyfisherman, so this stop was a no-brainer. He was most interested in the museum so we spent most of our time there. Good stop.

If you are in to fly fishing you know the name and you will have to stop here. It’s a large place with plenty to see. Allow time to walk around and check out the inside and outside stuff.
