“Nice small Museum”
Reviewed May 1, 2017

This is a nice and informative Museum attached to a very good fishing tackle shop.
There are videos playing of Hardy employees making fly rods, the staff are friendly and very helpful,
Take your wallet as there is everything for the fisherman.

“For all Hardy fans”
Reviewed February 5, 2017

If you are a keen fisherman/angler then this place is for you. Interesting display in museum about history of the Hardy family and fishing equipment. Well stocked store of different brands of fishing equipment & accessories. Friendly staff who were happy to chat about 'fishing'. They obviously KNOW what they are talking about and were very pleasant and helpful. Shop's a bit pricey but you are getting top quality products.
