This is a great time to service all your kit and to get fly tying and load up those boxes ready for when you are back on the water or, if you’ve not tried it before, why not give fly tying it a go?


In order to protect both delivery staff and customers as much as possible, our couriers have policies in place to ensure safe delivery for everyone. Please refer to their latest updates below. Also, please be aware that normal shipping times may be subject to delays as the situation evolves. We cannot offer next day delivery at this time.

If you are an oversees customer, please note that all parcels may be subject to additional delays. This is due to the fact that all parcels are being collected and stored at central depots until there is enough volume of shipments going to the designated country to make it viable. We apologise for this additional delay and thank you for understanding during these difficult times.

Patience and Support


Most fishers are now enjoying a safe and socially-distanced return to lake and river banks. We urge all fishers heading out to do so safely and responsibly and to abide by all current Government guidelines on social distancing and travelling. Fishers should abide by all local regulations and demonstrate that we are ambassadors for our sport, still playing a part in the nationwide battle against coronavirus.
