From the American Museum of Fly Fishing: “Introducing Fishing the Collection! 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. Stay tuned as we release Episode 2 and 3 in the coming weeks!
Featured in this episode: 1973 Orvis Battenkill, 8′, 8wt, 2-piece”
