We are a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to preserving America’s fly fishing heritage, teaching its younger generations of fly fishers and promoting the future of fly fishing. We carry out this mission by operating a historical and contemporary museum, an education center, and a gathering place for the entire fly fishing community.
The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum is proud to be the home of The Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, The Demarest Rodmakers Gallery, The Poul Jorgensen Golden Hook Award, The Catskill Rodmakers Gathering, The Hardy Cup, and very soon the Wulff Gallery and The Catskill Rodmakers Workshop and Arts of the Angler Craft Center. The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum is also proud to be recognized internationally and is a sister museum to Italy’s International Museum of Fly Fishing, Stanislao Kuckiewicz in Castel di Sangro.
We provide a meeting place for anglers to share their ideas and experiences, improve their skills and enhance their enjoyment of the sport of fly fishing. On behalf of the CFFCM, welcome to our site and we hope to see you at the museum. It’s all about fly fishing.
