Seattle Area (No fishing sadly)

Hey guys,
I'm headed to Seattle in the middle of March with a non-fishing buddy. Sadly I won't be doing any fishing but I would love to be able to poke into a fly shop or two while we're there. I did a quick google search but I was wondering if there were any shops within 2 hours or so that would be really worth seeing? I'm a two hand junky from the cape cod area so anything that's two hand friendly in the Seattle area would greatly appeal to me!
We're also headed to the Hoh Forest area so if there's anything that direction I'll certainly entertain it.
Thanks!
-Josh

Two recommendations

Waters West is not to be missed for their selection of fly tying materials. They also have a good selection of rods. They are in Port Angeles on the way to the Hoh rain forest. Puget Sound Fly in Tacoma speaks 2 handers, and all the guys that man the shop are knowledgeable about fishing and exploring the OP.

In Seattle proper, it's worth a visit to Patrick's on Eastlake. That was the first fly shop that I visited in college. Last summer, I was in Seattle for an extended time and stopped by several times. It was like a window into the past. I also like the fly shop in Gig Harbor because my wife is from there. They are friendly and really in to salt water opportunities.

Awesome thanks guys! I can't wait to check them out. I'm sure it'll kill me to be there and not be able to fish....hopefully the shops will hold me over until I can return with rods in hand.
Thanks again
