Fishing Museum Online
February-2015 - Filed in: Angling History
As many fishing fans know, here in Britain we are no closer to the ideal of a permanent exhibition dedicated to the history of fishing than we were half a century ago. But times change and new opportunities arise, and here's a reminder that Medlar Press designs and sponsors an on-line museum. This is in itself a challenging enough proposition, given the need to add copy, illustrations, design, web knowhow and bandwidth, but the pages we have already established represent a core that will grow into a major resource for anyone interested in the history of British fishing.
This isn't an ordinary museum, so don't plan to spend the day wandering around staring at stuffed fish in glass cases. Instead you'll see high definition photographs, backed up by articles telling the story behind the images. If you just want to relax, drink a beer and chill out to some historical fly tying videos, then click on www.fishingmuseum.org.uk.
