You know what this Nation thing needs? More Glass.

Seele Fly Rods have agreed to be in attendance at Spey Nation.  We’re happy to have another “East of the Mississippi” rod company who are addicted to the same thing we are.

As a young company we have a ton of new rods – all handcrafted (we roll our own graphite and glass blanks) in Bellwood, PA.

Probably most unique rods: Switch and Double Hand Glass rods (100% S-Glass)!
In every single Seele Fly Rod you will feel the essence of more than 60 years of experience in fly fishing – built by fly fishers for fly fishers.  The fly rods with soul.

Check out their entire line of graphite and glass fly rods here and especially pay close attention to these light sabers. 

Loop USA Pencils Us In!

Hoping to improve on our 2014 performance, we have implemented a new push for 2015.  We are trying to get all of our ducks in a row before the winter runs are fully in their taking lies.  So after supporting Swing the Fly Magazine and running an ad, we have had conversations with new companies about why they have missed Spey Nation in the past.  One we have made great strides with have penciled us in for 2015.  Loop USA will have a full line of Loop Products stream side in Pineville next year.  We’re going to hold them to it.



Should be something with the patented Loop Logo in there for you guys to buy tickets for too!

Every once in a while you get reminded as to why we put on Spey Nation for the past 8 years.  It’s October and Spey Nation is mostly put away for the year and we are focussing on 2015.  But in this 24/7 world of Twitter, Facebook and the interwebs, Spey Nation 2014 lives on through you.  AND We got tweeted at.
