"Ellensburg Washington's Premier Pro-Shop, Professional Guide Service and Online Network Assisting Fly Fishers Worldwide Since 1995"


The Worley-Bugger Fly Co. was founded during the winter of 1995 outside the city of Ellensburg, Washington by entrepreneur, Steve Worley.  It began as a small internet based company (www.worleybuggerflyco.com) selling specialized flies for the Yakima River, while offering a one man Professional Guide Service. 

The internet based web site was the first for the Yakima River, informing anglers world-wide, while compiling detailed, accurate information on the river conditions, hatches, and productive fly patterns.

As the web-site gained popularity with fly fishermen, so did the services of Worley-Bugger.  The one man operation soon grew, and the operators of WBFC could no longer handle the demand for its services.  At this time, Mr. Joe Taller was hired on a part time basis to manage the over-flow of fly fishermen looking to experience the Yakima River for themselves.  The 1997 season kept both of them very busy, logging well over 200 river days on the Yakima.
In 1998 the web-site, now a popular place for Yakima River fly fishers, had a strong following and became an internet based fly shop selling an aray of fly fishing products.  Here, an angler could surf the site and purchase high quality fly fishing products through the securely.  This was quickly becoming more than one man had ever expected.
Days were spent fishing the Yakima through the 1998 season as well as many other Eastern Basin fisheries.  The demand for expansion was imminent and this 2 man team knew that it was only a matter of time before it happened.  In the fall of 1998, a building at 306 S. Main in Ellensburg was acquired and work on Ellensburg's first full service pro/fly shop was being constructed.

During the winter of 1998, hours were spent constructing the new facility to meet the needs of the Yakima River fly fishers and the guests of WBFC.  It took many hours of hard labor and dedication, while still maintaining the web-site and guide services. 
Spring of 1999, work continued on the expansion project for Worley-Bugger Fly Co.  On July 14th, 1999 Worley-Bugger Fly Co. opened its fly shop doors to the public and within 15 minutes had it's very first sale.  Since this time the expansion of the fly shop, guide service and web-services continues to grow to meet the needs of fly fishermen world wide.
During the 2000 season, an additional crew were added to the guiding professionals of Worley Bugger Fly Co.  The professional guide services continues to be built around local individuals who have an intimate knowledge of the rivers and species that live here.  Our guests benefit from this and reaps its rewards.  In 2001, Worley Bugger continued its expansion, branching out from the Yakima and now offers several new and exciting fly fishing adventures.
Worley Bugger Fly Co. offers several exciting fly fishing destinations located throughout Central Washington.  Here, fly fishermen can cast to Steel-Head, Chinook and Coho Salmon as well as trophy rainbow, brown and cutt-throat trout and small mouth bass.  Blackstone Lake, a well know still water fishery is under the exclusive management of Worley Bugger Fly Co. 
The Worley-Bugger Fly Co. web site continues to be built and maintained in house.  To date, it is the most reliable, most comprehensive web site for the Yakima River and Central Washington fly fishermen.  WBFC continues to set the standard of excellence for all professional guide services working the Washington rivers, streams and still waters of the state.
Our company was founded on hard-work and dedication to the sport of fly fishing, while protecting the resources in which we make our living.  WBFC continues to strive for the protection of wild fish and offers the opportunity for everyone to experience fly fishing the Yakima River.
