The Redington Dually Spey Rod teamed with a Waterworks-Lamson Liquid Reel is a Spey outfit that doesn't deserve to be called "beginner", although the price would suggest otherwise. This very popular combination has been packaged with an RIO Skagit Max Skagit head and an Airflo Ridge Running Line. The appropriately sized Skagit head and running line is included with each package (see below for details on each package). We have also included the backing, custom cut Airflo sink-tips in 7-foot and 13-foot lengths, and a RIO 6-foot, 12 lb. Steelhead/Salmon Leader.
Pacific Fly Fishers is the closest full-scale fly shop to the famous Skagit, Skykomish and Stillaguamish rivers.

We guarantee that your new Spey outfit is professionally selected and professionally rigged when it reaches your door. Put a fly on your leader and you'll be ready to fish with these completely packaged outfits. No more guessing and buying the wrong line sizes. We've taken all the guess work out of the equation.

The Redington Dually two-handed rods were designed with the price conscience Spey caster in mind. Redington left off most of the frills found on other rods with their Dually Spey. What they ended up with was a bomber rod at half the cost of others on the market. They handle all but the longest lines and have a sharp matte Burgundy finish. Redington Dually rods are 4-piece rods that come with a rod tube, rod sock, and Redington's Lifetime Warranty. More info.
The Waterworks-Lamson Liquid Reel is perfect for steelhead and salmon rivers and is far superior to most reels you'll find on other inexpensive Spey rod packages. It features a one-piece, large arbor spool, lightweight design, and an easy-to-adjust drag knob. The drag on the Liquid reels is the same as other Waterworks-Lamson reels. It is a sealed drag which keeps the drag consistent even when the reel has been dunked in the river. This is an important benefit when you're relying on the perfect drag setting to set the hook when a steelhead takes your fly on the swing. Retail prices on the Liquid 3.5 and 4 reels is $109.95 and $129.95. More info.
The RIO Skagit Max is by far the best Skagit head that RIO has ever produced. The Max is tremendously easy to cast and will allow you to cast in tight quarters such as when your back is up against the trees. They launch across the river with ease and have the power to turn over your neighbor's cat. The head length ranges from 23 to 25 feet depending on the size included in your package. They come as just the head so we are also including a necessary running line and two sink tips to complete your line setup. More info.
Airflo Ridge Running Lines are super popular and get our vote for the best running lines on the market. They feature a low-stretch core for positive hooks sets even when fishing long casts. Their ridged texture shoots through the guides with ease but is barely noticeable in the hand. Ridge Running Lines also tangle less frequently than other running lines and have excellent durability. More info.
To complete your line setup, we're including two Airflo Custom Cut sink-tips. One sink-tip is cut to 7-feet and is perfect for moderate to shallow steelhead lies. The second tip is 13-feet and is used for moderate to deep water. Each sink-tip has a nicely made loop to easily connect the sink-tip to your Skagit head. We have also built a looped butt section on the other end of each tip so you can quickly add and remove leaders. The sink rate on these tips is 8- to 9-inches per second. More info.
Scientific Anglers' backing is very thin, highly durable and the colors are colorfast. We've been using it for years on everything from trout to billfish and haven't run into a single inconsistency. Your outfit will come with the perfect amount backing already loaded onto the reel and attached to your line. We only use the best knots to rig your setup. We use the Albright Knot with a lock then sealed with glue to connect your backing to your running line. More info.
RIO's Steelhead and Salmon Leaders are perfectly designed for anadromous species such as steelhead and salmon. Its clear, non-glare finish disappears in all water conditions. Its knotless taper has a thicker butt section and uses a slightly stiffer copolymer for abrasion-resistance and for turning over larger flies. The leader already comes with a perfection knot on the butt of the leader and will come in the package already attached to a sink-tip on your reel. Just add fly and go fishing! More info.
The Redington Dually 6126-4 is the smallest rod in the Dually Spey line up. It is a perfect light Summer Run Steelhead, Pink Salmon, and larger trout streamer fishing rod.
The Redington Dually 7130 is a journeyman Spey rod that is well suited to most all Steelhead fishing seasons. The Dually 7130 will always be able to get the job done no matter what you ask of it. From large flies and sink tips on your Skagit, to hairwings on a Scandi, the Dually 7130 is a rod that will never complain about its day of work out on the river.
The Redington Dually 81366 is a fantastic winter steelhead and big summer steelhead rod. It is perfect for medium to large rivers where running into steelhead of 12 to 20+ pounds is common. Rivers like the Hoh, Skagit, Dean, and most of the rivers of the Skeena system in B.C. are where this road is most at home. Throwing sink-tips and a weighted flies is a cinch with the 625 grain Skagit head.
