Winter Flats Fishing Trip
Let's go!  Join our staff in Ascension Bay this winter.  We host several weeks a year here and would love to take you with us.  This trip is a GREAT value.

Video Tips - Sliding Thingamabober
Here is a great tip, just watch the video and follow along.  You may find this very useful!

Cold Weather Fishing Gear

- Simms Bulkley Jacket - This is the jacket we have been telling you about.  It is a great value plus it is insulated AND Gore-tex!!

Waders That Don't Leak - Get some waders that don't leak for fishing in cold weather.  The Redington Sonic Pro Wader has a zipper which only leaks when you need it to! :) 

Simms Foldover Mitt
- Get some good gloves.  Those all wool things that you have are not doing anyone any good.  Get some Simms gloves and start fishing when its cold... with warm hands.


Early Gift Ideas

Vac Rac by Combi
- This is such a cool gift.  This allows you to leave your rods full length and take them straight from your garage and put them on top of your car.

New John Gierach Book
- Who doesn't LOVE John's writing.  Funny, interesting, and to the point.  Good fishing content and some great laughs at the same time.  Perfect gift!

Sage Quest Insulated Hoody
- This is more of a "lifestyle" jacket perfect for anyone that wants a sporty good looking jacket that is super functional.  It is a multi-purpose jacket that you will wear everywhere, not just fishing.  It looks good both out to dinner with your woman or on the river.

Dear Anglers,

We finally moved into our spectacular new building and now we are planning a big party to celebrate!  A lot has changed here at Red's Fly Shop and Canyon River Ranch over the past decade and we invite you to come see it in person on December 8th and 9th.  As many of you know, Red's has been around for decades and has slowly grown from being operated off the porch of a single wide trailer to one of the best and nicest destination fly shops in the world.  In this process we have never waivered from our undying passion of wanting to see other anglers succeed.  This is what makes Red's different.  Your success is our specialty whether it is a guided trip, fly fishing class, or you simply want some free advice.  We give you everything we've got!  We also need to formally thank our incredible loyal customer base for supporting us throughout the years.  We couldn't have done this without you! 

Please join us for the grand opening festivities and official ribbon cutting.  We will be hosting free lunch, fishing clinics, a  beginner's shooting clinic, and door prizes.  We will have lots of friendly staff on hand to teach, answer fishing questions, and entertain.   It will be a day to remember and we sincerely hope that you can stop by.  The fly shop is complete and the cafe' will open in the spring at which time we'll announce the official name!

Tis the season! Santa Claus will be seated by the fireplace from 11 am - 3 pm both days so bring your wish lists.  Our current inventory is astounding so you will get plenty of ideas!  If you can't make it out to see us in person, take advantage of our online fly shop where we offer free shipping on all orders over $50 and pay sales tax for WA State residents, what a deal!  Gift cards can be purchased and delivered electronically as well.


Fly Rods, fly rods, and more... fly rods
So what’s new at Red’s Fly Shop?



We currently have 222 DIFFERENT models of fly rods ON THE SALES FLOOR!  Whether you’re looking for a 000 weight or a 15’ 10 weight spey, not only can you wave these rods around indoors under the 22’ high ceilings, but you will be able to walk out to the dedicated casting course or even the river to try them out!  Nobody that we know of has a rod selection as deep and diverse as we do.  Many online stores might advertise they carry rods in stock, but Red's does carry them.  We can typically ship rods within 24 hours from the time you order.


Visit Washington State

Celebrate the Pacific Northwest Lifestyle at Red's

Washington is proud to have some very unique and distinct credentials when it comes to comparing things on a national level.  The Evergreen State is famous for the Space Needle, Starbuck’s coffee, world class apples, Mt. Rainier, and award winning Dungeness crab and Pacific oysters along Puget Sound.  Add to these attractions the corporate presence of Microsoft, Amazon, Costco, and Boeing;  and throw in a Seahawks team that is showing playoff potential this year, along with two college football programs working to get back into National contention, and it would be safe to say, Washington is a great place to visit, and also to call home. 


What makes WA such a popular place to visit and live?  In addition to the robust urban scene, there are also incredibly diverse outdoor recreation opportunities.  There must be for companies like Sage fly rods, Patagonia, REI, OR, Ex Officio, Wooldridge boats, and G Loomis to have origins here.  We are blessed with an abundance of resources that are easily accessible and enjoyable for everyone living in and visiting the great State of Washington. 


Red’s Fly Shop at Canyon River Ranch is proud to be part of this NW outdoor lifestyle dating all the way back to the 1960’s when the property was operated as Riverview Campground offering floaters a safe place to camp in the wild and scenic Yakima canyon.  Since then we’ve undergone several major transitions that moved the shop from the porch of a trailer, into a modular home which underwent several remodels, and finally into its’ current location in the center of this spectacular property.  To celebrate this, Red’s will be hosting the grand opening event on the weekend of December 8th and 9th.  This is a great opportunity to check out the new shop which is the largest (and arguably the nicest!) fly shop West of the Mississippi.  Designed by renowned Seattle architect Mithun and nestled on a bend in the famous Yakima River canyon 13 miles South of Ellensburg, the building represents the traditional NW lodge style construction.  The cedar plank siding and basalt chimneys perfectly compliment the arid shrub steppe terrain that surround the property.


Women's Fly Fishing Gear
Finally a GOOD Selection of Women's Gear



We have a HUGE inventory of hard to find items including Women’s and Youth model fishing gear and clothing.  Especially waders, boots, and fishing jackets.  Our new shop is very comfortable with a changing room and a place to try stuff on.  Finally you women can shop someplace that has it all!  We have multiple brands that are sure to fit any size, shape, and budget.


Drift Boat and Raft Sales Floor
New, Used, and Special Order Boats




Indoor Boat Sales showroom in the basement!   Rain or shine, you will be able to come see the latest and greatest in the new and used markets for rafts, drift boats, Water Masters, and even pontoons.  Bring your check book and you can be floating in your new boat that very same day!



Gun Sales and Sporting Clays
Shotguns, Clothing, and Ammo




We sell and rent shotguns at Red's.   Join us for some shooting on our sporting clays course and make your trip easy by simply renting a gun from us.  This also allows you to try before you buy as well.  We are licensed gun seller and can special order most brands including a full line of Beretta firearms.

Wingshooting Adventures
Same Day Pheasants and Clay



Winter fishing isn't for everyone so let's go hunting.  Even if you are a first time shooter Red's will make your experience fun, friendly, and safe.  For seasoned vets, you guys will enjoy the unique opportunities hunting with our staff.  We hunt released Pheasants, wild Chukar, wild Quail, and Waterfowl depending on your interests.  Our most popular trip as of late has been a "Same Day Pheasants and Clay"


Warm up with a 50 shot round of Sporting Clays, eat lunch, then proceed to our Pheasant hunting preserve for a "6 Rooster Cardio Booster".  This will get your blood pumping and keep you warm all day!


The Same Day Pheasants and Clay trip is $368 per person, minimum of 2 hunters, and includes 50 rounds of ammo for the clays course.  It is a fully guided hunt over pointing dogs.  Your guide will clean your birds as well.  Lunch is not included on this trip but can be added upon request for $15 per shooter.
