Spawn Fly Fish is a fly shop that has evolved quickly over the years all thanks to the support from each and every one of you. The journey began in 2017, in a living room, with an idea that quickly evolved into a massive growth objective. We wanted to be the very best fly shop there is with the largest selection of fly tying and fly fishing materials!

Today, Spawn Fly Fish is one of the nation's premier fly shops, located in Ilwaco, Washington, and offering over ten thousand fly tying and fly fishing products from all your favorite top brands.

One thing that sets Spawn Fly Fish apart from other fly shops is their commitment to giving back to the angler, community, and outdoors. This goal has been at the forefront of the company's mission from the very beginning. Spawn Fly Fish shares their aspirations, values, and community involvement with their customers, and strives to build personal relationships with each and every one. Despite being a small company, Spawn Fly Fish hopes to make a big impact by giving 2% of all profits back to conservation organizations. In time, they hope to give even larger contributions to the outdoor community. Not only do they make monetary donations to organizations they believe in, but they have also helped found and volunteered to teach a fly fishing class at a middle school they attended many years ago. This class is now a regular elective offered two periods a day, introducing dozens of children to this incredible sport.
