American Museum of Fly Fishing Exhibits Ogden Pleissner

If you weren’t aware of it already, the non-profit American Museum of Fly Fishing, located in Manchester, Vermont, has amassed an incredible collection of fly fishing art, artifacts and literature. They also highlight their offerings with regular exhibits of gear, personal histories and media and until October 31, 2008 will be exhibiting the art of Ogden Pleissner (1928-1976). Pleissner was very influential in mid-20th century sporting art, and his works represent some of the very best depictions of fly fishing to come out of North America (though he also traveled and painted extensively in Europe).
You can read more about the exhibit on the Museum Web site, and even purchase an exhibit catalog. Better yet, take a trip to Manchester and see the exhibit and the Museum in person.
