Through exhibits and videos, you’ll learn about legendary "Stream Blazers," the evolution of rods and reels, basic knots, fly-tying, types of gear, types of gamefish, regional fishing waters, and the history of fly fishing in the Southeast.
Once considered a sport only for the wealthy, today fly fishing is one of the hottest trends in outdoor activities for both men and women. Whether you are a long-time fly fisherman or have only attempted or never tried fly fishing, you will find something to enjoy and learn from in the museum.
The rustic interior reinforces the outdoor theme of the museum. An entire tobacco barn was dismantled in Surry County, North Carolina. The entire barn and many additional loads of barn wood were used to make exhibit cases, partitions, benches, and other furnishings.
