The American Museum of Fly Fishing is doing something interesting. They are taking rods from their collection and lettering anglers use them. See the intro below.
In this new film series from the AMFF, we’re taking vintage rods from our collection and putting them in the hands of modern anglers. As we travel to various locations, bamboo rods of yesteryear are put to the test in both salt and fresh water, and our anglers share their take on what it’s like to fish with classic equipment. We think you’ll find the results visually captivating and educational, allowing the observer to reflect on how far we’ve come in the development of equipment while also honoring the beauty and style of the past.
There are 2 episodes out now but go to https://www.amff.org/fishing-the-collection/ to find out more and to see future episodes and to see what the museum has to offer.
