The Wall Street Journal on The American Museum of Fly Fishing

“Benny Goodman’s Paul Young rod is here; also Babe Ruth’s Payne. And there’s a Shakespeare glass rod that belonged to Ted Williams, who was as skilled and single-minded on a bonefish flat or salmon pool as he was on the baseball diamond. Williams, according his plaque, liked to tie flies after a game. ‘It releases me,’ he said, ‘ . . . Come in after a game, all taut and nervous, tie a few flies and, boom, right to sleep.'” Geoffrey Norman describes the restful charm of the American Museum of Fly Fishing in Manchester, Vermont. In the Wall Street Journal.
