If you are in to fly fishing you know the name and you will have to stop here. It’s a large place with plenty to see. Allow time to walk around and check out the inside and outside stuff.

You can test the rods and equipment in the main pool outside the shop, but not actually fish it, I don't think. They attached a hookless tag when I tested the new Helios rod.
