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

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).


Red's Fly Shop

Ellensburg, WA

(509) 933-2300

The Yakima River is legendary in Washington and Red's Fly Shop is right in the middle of it. Be sure to read their "About" page to learn about their history. The folks at Red's understand the world of two-handed (Spey) casting and it's application.


Gorge Fly Shop

Hood River, OR

(541) 386-6977

Owner: Travis Duddles

Celebrating 25 years of business, Gorge Fly Shop is a full service company dedicated to providing the best customer service possible. Located in the small town of Hood River, in the heart of Oregon and Washington's Columbia River Gorge.
