The Lure of Fishing

The Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee recently announced that an exhibit dedicated to Florida’s rich fishing history will open to the public on March 13, 2014 and be on display throughout the month of August.  Artifacts, including artwork, historic images, trophies, fish mounts and tackle tell the tale of sport fishing in the Sunshine State.  Two prestigious trophies, the Mrs. Henry Rea Silver Sailfish Derby trophy from the West Palm Beach Fishing Club and the Metropolitan Miami Fishing Tournament’s Henry H. Hyman Memorial trophy from the International Game Fish Association will be featured in the exhibit.
