Fly Shop Friday – Troutwater Fly Shop
This weeks Fly Shop Friday goes to the Troutwater Fly Shop, out of Cle Elum, WA. A shop that pretty much gets a stop by every time we roll East to fish Desert creeks, Summer Steelhead, Carp lakes or any of the other countless opportunities throughout Eastern Washington.
Formally the Yakima River Fly Fishers since 2001, the shop did some restructuring, and became Troutwater in 2010, opening a new location in Ellensburg as well as updating their Cle Elum location. Bringing in some top notch talent has helped Troutwater become one of the top shop and guide services, in an area that may be just a little over saturated with them.
From their Website:

I had planned on making Fly Shop Friday a regular kind of thing, but just have not been getting any submissions, and have not been traveling any where new recently. So If you know of an outstanding shop that deserves some recognition drop us a line.
