Stretch the legs and get a photo. The best time is when the local farmers market is on. You can see everything from the road, but it is still a good place to stretch the legs

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.

This was a random stop on our drive back to Alaska. It's surrounded my a pretty nice park, and makes a great place to stretch your legs and take a cool photo.

Pretty neat to see. Nice walk in the general area of the fishing rod. I can only imagine the size of fish you could catch with this.

You're going right by so get out, stretch your legs and take a few pictures. You'll have bragging rights and something interesting to show all your friends! There are some other great things to see in this roadside park and the information center, with a huge stuffed grizzly, is a helpful place too.

This tourist stop is a quick one. It is located in the same parking lot as the visitor info centre, which is right along highway 16. The world's largest fly rod stands 60 feet high and weighs about 800 pounds. It is also illuminated at night. It is located right by Steelhead Park, which is a great place to stretch... More
