Trout Spey and Switch Rods

When it comes to finding Trout Spey and Switch rod gear in North Georgia, you will be hard pressed to find a shop that even speaks the language or has a basic knowledge-base of the subject. What's the solution to purchase Trout Spey and Switch products?


As a man once said: "Go West, young man, go West!"


The States of Washington and Oregon do not charge sales tax on Internet sales. Nor do most Washington and Oregon fly fishing suppliers charge shipping over a certain dollar amount. This is great news for the North Georgia enthusiast taking up fly fishing "Spey-Style". Since local shops do not carry the products that support this aspect of the sport, my recommendation is to turn to some of the very best shops in the U.S. that "Speak Spey".

Three of the Western-based fly shops that we recommend are listed below:


The Fly Fishing Shop

Welches, OR

(503) 622-4607

Flyfishonly.com

flyfish@flyfishusa.com


Owner: Marc Bachman

Marc is also the primary organizer of the annual Sandy Creek Spey Clave which is the largest gathering of Spey (Two-Handed) enthusiast's and industry suppliers in the nation. There are two other large Spey Claves held in the U.S. but this is the Grand Daddy (usually held in the month of May).

John & Amy Hazel, Owners

The Deschutes Angler and the Deschutes River are legendary. John Hazel, single handily, introduced fly fishing with a Two Handed Rod in the United States long before anyone in the U.S. knew anything about Spey Casting. Amy Hazel is also in a class all by herself. They run guided Steelhead trips on the Deschutes as well as 3-day Spey Camps on the river where you can learn from the very best in the industry. When it comes to fishing the Deschutes and their Steelhead, no one knows more about the subject. Like all other shops in Oregon, they do not charge any sales tax. The folks at Deschutes Angler are wonderful to work with either in person or on the phone and can answer any question that you throw at them. Experts in their field!
