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
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!
season! Santa Claus will be seated by the fireplace from 11 am - 3 pm

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
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.
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!

Same Day Pheasants and Clay
