Seen the grizzly. Lived in this town before. Tourism admin helpful. Showed our travel companions the fly rod and bear. Bought some local books. Wish they had more bumper stickers.

Perfect excuse to get out of the car and stretch your legs while enjoying this kitschy claim to fame. We happened to drop by on a Saturday when a farmers market was taking place and it was absolutely worth the stop.

Was a nice stop - just don't drive by!! We enjoyed taking photos and relaxing around the rest area. Good place to check out whats happening in the local area too (information boards).

Yes it's a large fly rod, but one you won't find anywhere else. This attraction is located Amongst well kept gardens of beautiful flowers and the attraction itself is unique.
