Tied together

 

Exhibition Opening August 13, 2022 at the 15th Annual Fly-Fishing Festival

When Joan Salvato and Lee Wulff were joined in marriage, it brought together two luminaries of the fishing world. The significance of the contributions this pairing made to the sport of fly fishing cannot be overstated, providing modern-day anglers with numerous innovations related to both the gear and techniques that have helped shape the sport into what it has become today.

We’re honored to have spent the past year working with Joan to bring this exhibition to AMFF. We’ve gathered film, photos, equipment, and ephemera from across the decades as a tribute to the legacy of Joan and Lee.
