Dog-Friendly Manchester, Vermont | The American Museum of Fly Fishing
Our dog-friendly Vermont vacation was originally intended to include my mom and step-dad, Ed. Unfortunately, my step-dad had some business he wasn’t able to get away from. However, throughout our vacation, he was in my heart and I wanted to ensure that Dexter The Dog and I visited some dog-friendly places that Ed would have enjoyed, so we could tell him all about it, in the hopes of visiting Vermont again.
Ed enjoys fishing, and fly fishing has always brought him joy. I thought it would be fun to visit The American Museum of Fly Fishing in Ed’s honor. And guess what? It’s dog-friendly! The fly fishing museum was established in 1968 in Manchester, Vermont by a group of anglers. These passionate fishermen believed that the history of angling was an important part of American tradition and culture and deserved a place to preserve this tradition.
This fishing museum has the world’s largest collection of angling and angling-related items, and that’s something to write home about. With thousands of collections for a visitor to enjoy, the exhibits were very interesting to look at and read about the history. The museum included documentation of the evolution of fly fishing as a sport and art form. Fly fishing flies, tackle, magazines, photographs, rods and reels… this museum had a little bit of everything.
Did I mention that The American Museum of Fly Fishing was dog-friendly? I just think that is so special. I loved the fact that Dexter was able to visit this unique museum in Manchester, Vermont with me. Finding dog-friendly places like this truly makes traveling with your dog a much happier experience. Even if you aren’t a fishing nut, this dog-friendly museum is something to check out.
