Temporary Exhibits

New temporary exhibit at the Bella Vista Historical Society Museum features antique and vintage fly fishing reels and bamboo fly rods, one of which was used in the 1992 film "A River Runs Through It". Other display items of note include fresh and saltwater flies, fly boxes, photographs and books. Of special interest is a 1942 Life Magazine issue featuring avid fly fisher/actress Ginger Rogers fly fishing and wearing waders.

Teens can also help by joining our Teen Volunteer Squad.
