A fraction of the Spey Rod models at The Fly Fishing Shop !!!

Pictured above is the west wall of our show room where 32 different models of Spey rods are on display.  There are many more models in the stock-room that won't fit on the wall.  Steelhead fishing is a passion at The Fly Fishing Shop. We are surrounded by steelhead and salmon rivers; huge rivers, big rivers, medium rivers and small rivers.  These rivers offer a diversity of  angling opportunities and  challenges.  That is why our selection of Spey rods is so large, so you can have just the right rod for every situation.  Other reasons are that we really like fishing with Spey rods.  We like experimenting with Spey rods and learning about Spey rods.  We like playing with Spey rods and talking to other Spey fishers about Spey rods. We might be called Spey obsessed. Spey rods are very cool. And we have cast every rod pictured here and caught fish on most.

With their elegant cosmetics and fast, powerful actions, it's no wonder that Thomas and Thomas Double-Hand Rods have created their own fan club.  These rods are designed to help you facilitate all of the new circle and snake roll casts as well as more traditional Spey and over-head casts.  T&T 2-handers are very versatile.  The hard, crisp actions generate tremendous line speed with with every type of line taper commonly used on two-handers.  Likewise these rods excel with both floating and sinking lines.

Kerry Burkheimer and his crew build very fine graphite fly rods at his plant, located in Washougal, Washington.  Studying under and collaborating with legendary rod designer Russ Peak in the 1980's, Kerry quickly became known as producer of elegantly crafted, high performance fly rods.  Little by little Kerry has increased the production of his small factory.  We can now offer his seven most sought after models.  These rods are built by hand and are in much demand. Production is limited. We have been testing and fishing with Burkheimer rods since 2001.


Winston Spey Rods Boron IIX Spey Rods

Winston introduced their revolutionary BIIX Series of two-handers in 2005 with two models. That same year Winston's head rod designer, Sam Drukman added expert Spey caster, Andre Scholz to the Winston team. Two more models have been added since then. Winston Spey rods are smooth as butter and each model will cast a wide range of line weights and fit a wide range of casting and fishing styles. Winston BIIX rods are very lightweight, but incredibly durable. In 2006 and 2007 the Winston B2X78133 was the single most popular model of Spey rod sold at our store.


Temple Fork Outfitters Spey Rods

Pro Series Deer Creek Series

Temple Fork Outfitters rods are designed in the United States and production of the rods is done in a proprietary plant in South Korea. This approach has some distinct advantages in that the best technology is used, but at reduced production costs, which brings great value to the consumer. Lefty Kreh is the chief designer of the Pro Series. Last year Mike Kinney and Bob Meiser joined the staff and introduced the Deer Creek Series. The Pro Series offers are Plain-Jane rods that are perfect for entry level casters and for guides who furnish gear. The dear Creek Series are muscle rods with refined cosmetics that will appeal to Spey casters of all skill levels. Dear Creek rods offer incredible performance at mid-range prices.

Echo Rods

Classic Rods Dec Hogan Signature Scandinavian Rods

Sometimes it pays to borrow the guide's Echo Classic Spey Rod...

Designed and produced by tournament caster, Tim Rajeff these eight models of beautiful Spey rods spent almost two years in the making. To say that Tim is a perfectionist is an understatement. The Echo "Classic" rods are the culmination of countless hours of tinkering and testing. There are four models of traditional action Spey rods in the Classic Series that range from 12 1/2' to 14', which covers nearly every salmon & steelhead situation in North America. The The Echo2 Scandinavian series of fly rods feature two tips, one for long distance and one for shorter presentations. These Scandi rods are shorter and have much faster actions than the Classic Series. Both series are highly adaptable to many situations.

The newest series of classic action rods were produced in collaboration with popular steelhead angler and writer, Dec Hogan.

The World's Greatest Spey Party is changing!
Ian Gordon. Scott Howell.

Marty Sheppard.

Many folks that attended last years Sandy River Spey Clave noticed a slight change in the format of the presentations. We will be following the same trend this year.

While we will be having casting presentations, as this is at the root of any well presented clave, many of the featured personalities will also be demonstrating fishing techniques as well. We have asked some participants to demonstrate practical applications of the casts they perform. We understand that many of the people who attend are wanting to see basic to advanced casting, but there are those of us who are also want practical advice on spey rod fishing as well. Many of the folks who attend each of our Sandy River Spey Claves want to know what equipment each presenter is using and why. There was some excellent fishing advice that was given at last year's clave that had many of us nodding our heads in both agreement and enlightenment. Expect to see more of that this year.   
There will be some new personalities this year, such as Scottish tournament caster, Ian Gordon and Northwest fishing guides, Scott Howell and Marty Sheppard. Many on-the-water presentations are loaded with cutting edge casting techniques and fishing advice and even a bit about the history and the "why" of spey casting.  As the Sandy River Spey Clave progresses we will see everything from learning the basic cast to landing fish. The enjoyment of sharing the common interest of spey rod fishing with all of you who attend will not change. It's what makes the Sandy River Spey Clave what it is today. We are going to leave that part just the way it is...
You might also wish to know that the river is in perfect condition with steelhead available in good numbers. Chinooks are just starting to arrive. A number of anglers are plotting on winning that Winston B2X Spey rod. The weather forecast is for warm sunshine.


Hardy Demon Reel Hardy Demon Reel with Cassettes...

Whether your fishing demands you use the widest range of fly lines or just a floater, intermediate and sinker, you'll love the new Demon reel. With its tough, low cost spools you can afford to carry all the lines you need. With an innovative touch-button spool release and unique locking system you can change a Demon spool easily - and reliably - in seconds. In any conditions. Every time. The Demon is a high quality, feature filled reel with great looks and even greater performance. We've always thought the "cassette-reel" concept was brilliant. Cassettes are lighter in weight than extra spools and they take up less room. Best of all they cost less. Many new polymers are stronger than metal and won't corrode. Finally there is a premium reel built with interchangeable cassettes. This is the perfect reel for the travelling angler, who neds to keep weight to a minimum in his luggage. It is also the perfect design for stillwater anglers who need a wide selection of fly lines to be most effective.
