BENEFIT DETAILS

Journal Subscription


When you become a member of the American Museum of Fly Fishing you get to experience history both in person and in print. Since its introduction in 1974, The American Fly Fisher, our award-winning quarterly journal, mixes features on the collection with articles written by some of the most respected fly-fishing historians and scholars in the world today.

Members-Only Events


Once a year we throw back the curtains and allow our members to view some of the most significant artifacts from our collection. The artifacts are accompanied by presentations by the AMFF and special displays from experts featuring rods, reels, or equipment from their personal collections. Don’t miss out on this and other great members-only events in Manchester and abroad!
