Museum Honors Women Fly Fishers

This summer The American Museum of Fly Fishing opens a first ever exhibit honoring the historic role women have played in fly fishing.

Titled A Graceful Rise, the exhibit opens on June 11, 2011 and will run through April 2012.  The events planned for the opening weekend, June 11 & 12, include presentations, casting workshops, displays and an opportunity to meet some of the women who are the "Who's Who" in fly fishing.

These noted women include the First Lady of Fly Fishing, Joan Wulff; Diana Rudolph,world record holder; Fanny Krieger, founder of the IWFF and the Golden West Women Flyfishers; and noted guide and instructor Lori-Ann Murphy.

The museum has also paired with the Orvis Company to offer two 2-day women only fly fishing schools to be hosted by Molly Seminik, Master Casting Instructor and member of the Federation of Fly Fisher's Casting Board of Governors.

Established in 1968 in Manchester, Vermont, by a group of interested anglers, the American Museum of Fly Fishing serves as a repository for, and conservator to, the world's largest collection of angling and angling-related items.
