Explore Our Art Collection


Everyone knows about the Museum’s outstanding collection of rods, reels, and flies, but our collection of art, photographs, and other media offer us another method of documenting and preserving fly-fishing history.

Our holdings contain over 700 prints and paintings, 90 linear feet of photographs and archival materials, and 1700 pieces of ephemera. Our most recent project was to interview, record, and film nine saltwater fly-fishing pioneers as they recounted the changes in the saltwater field during its explosive growth during the mid-twentieth century. This film will soon be available for scholars and researchers to access.
