MichaelI love your site, your flies, and your prices. Second year in which I have ordered flies for the season from you, and I am completely satisfied. I'd write the same review for every pattern I ordered--exactly what I was looking for, with fine quality and an unbeatable price. Your site is easy to use, and the range of flies is really everything I could possibly imagine trying, here in the northeast at least. Totally no-hassle, with prompt delivery, good packaging, and also some great deals even beyond the good prices you already offer. I recommend you to everyone I know who flyfishes.
MacI just received flies from you and two other online fly shops and directly purchased from a fly shop I know in the SF Bay area on Monday in preparation for a week in Montana starting next week and another week in Wyoming in late June. I think your flies, though different than the others by type, are superior in overall value and superior of excellent quality. Of course the proof is how they perform when wet and their durability to hold up to fish! They are better than the photos in your website. Thank you, I look forward to my next order.
John P.Just got back from boca paila and in one day on the crazy charlie I got 15 bone fish and one 30" permit fly is still good
RussellI wanted to take this moment to provide feedback on my recent purchase. My order was filled, shipped promptly and delivered a day before scheduled. As for the wooly buggers – WOW!!! I am extremely pleased with the quality and the color schemes. The trout go crazy. It is a good thing that I am a catch and release angler because if I was not I would be home by 9 am. You definitely have a repeat customer. Keep up the good work.
Matt WilsonHey guys,---just wanted to drop you a line on my "success" of using you flies. I purchased several fly patterns last year and had great success with them!! Being a Fly-fishing guide myself in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado, and an FFF Master Casting Instructor, I really enjoyed the quality of the ties. I obtained a lot of hook-ups over the season and plan to get more this season. Keep up the Good Work, at prices we all can afford. This current economy demands that we shop around for good prices instead of paying over $2.00 a fly in some cases. Kudo's to You!!!!
MichaelMike and Lee Ann, The quality of your flies are superb. When buying flies from a new business I normally look at the smaller hook sizes (# 20 and smaller) first to determine if the person tying the fly got it right. Your #22 BWO flies are perfect, even under a magnifying glass. I live in eastern Maryland, with a fair number of fly shops in the Maryland and Pennsylvania area (including Orvis shops) and your flies are by far the better quality. I'm mostly impressed with your Eastern Collection, every fly is perfectly tied and the hoppers are standouts. The March Brown and Red Humpy dries are also beautifully tied. Many thanks for the follow-up.
JohnMike and Lee Ann: OK, OK, I tried another online fly shop. Three things worth noting. Whoever designed your web site architecture really knows what they are doing. Second, the flies I received from your competitor were poorly & inconsistently tied, unraveling with maddening predictability. Finally the cascading discount along with the "Frequent Flyer" program makes the cost of your flies better than the straight ahead “cheap fly” proposition your competitor uses because at least in their case, the flies are, in fact, cheap! Cheaply made and poorly tied from what appears to be inferior materials. Keep up the good work. I won’t stray again...My only suggestion is more midge patterns.
HenryI absolutely love discountflies.com !! You have superior flies and insanely low prices. I have since recommended your site to at least 10 to 12 friends and just about anyone I run into on the stream. I have had great success on your wooly buggers as well as your copper john patterns. Thank you so much for such a great site and service to the fly-fishing community. You guys are the real deal and you have a life long customer. Best Regards,
J.R.Thank you for your flies. I especially like, that is an understatement, I love the flash fry. I have been on the river twice since buying them and both times, have experienced strike after strike. I will definitely be ordering flies from you again soon. Thank You for all the fun,
JustinAs always the flies were excellent and much better quality than I've found other places. Add the quality to your lower than anybody else's price, and how can I go wrong if I keep coming back. Thanks and "Go fishing tomorrow".
StevenJust wanted to let you know that I have been very satisfied with the flies I've bought from Discount Flies. The quality is very good and the patterns are well represented on your website. I just returned from a trip to the Bahamas and the Squimp was a fantastic fly. Even our guide commented about how excited the bonefish got when they saw the fly.
Thanks, NickI was completely satisfied with my purchase from Discountflies! Your flies are exceptional quality; far better than other flies purchased on-line from other sources. I am looking forward to purchases in the future.
WaltHello! Mike and Lee Ann! Got the flies in good time. I have been having an absolute ball catching fish with these flies. I haven't even gotten around to trying a couple of them yet, as I am catching so many on the ones I have tried. Just a couple evenings ago, I tried the brown wire SFN for the first time and on the second cast hooked into a 33" hen that took me nearly 20 mins. to land, on the next cast in the same hole I hooked into a 36 1/4 " male and fought him for 18 mins. That is the biggest steelie I have caught on this river. The next night I hooked 3 fish in 22 mins. on the Conehead bite me bugger black color, I had to stop because of darkness. I have been fortunate to have landed 98 fish so far and hope to hit the century mark in the next few days. I don't fly fish for these steelies, but instead use a sliding float with 36" of leader and the fly on a fly snap. It sure works and your flies are the biggest reason for my success.
Thanks alot, DanMy fishing buddy and I used the flies this weekend on the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho (our home waters) and they were smokin'. 15+ brown trout over 20" and a few over 24" (along with countless smaller fish). We fished them in Chile in January with great results. We also used them a couple of weeks on the Big Hole river in Montana and they were on fire. They are extremely durable and fish love them. We'll be ordering more for our summer trip up to the Bow River in Alberta. Haven't tried the Bug Eye Black Bunny yet, hopefully this weekend.
DaveI take an annual fly fishing trip to Brittish Columbia and every year, part of the preparation frenzy with all of us gearhounds out here is getting the right patterns. Between our group we have tied, purchased from the big retailers and bought from various sources on line. This year I thought I would try a couple on-line providers (buy some flies from each to test out the quality) Well, YOU WIN in grand fashion...I must say I was very impressed with all the patterns I recieved on the first shipment and have already placed a second order. I was also very impressed with the website, the follow-up emails and the turn around time...oh yes and the prices! Can't wait to get these bugs wet!!
ScottI just wanted to let you know that it's so refreshing to work with a business that is so fast and easy to work with. You are very professional and know how to treat your customers. I had an incredible day out on the river last Friday and wanted to show my appreciation, so I will be coming back to your online store for all my flies and have already recommended you to my fly fishing friends.
KevinThe Gummy Stonefly - Golden were killers on the Deschutes mid June at the end of the salmon fly hatch. Unfortunately, I only had six with me and between the bottom and the big fish, they didn't last the whole trip.
Here in PA late season, I can't keep the trout off the Real Meal Nymphs. On a tandem rig with a bead head, they always take the real meal. I'm hoping five dozen will get me through the year.
BaronReceived my order today. The quality of all the flies is excellent. At this price, I may have tied my last fly. You guys interested in buying a used vice?
NickI ordered some other stuff from Orvis the same day as I ordered from you, and received it 5 days after yours. Thought you'd like to know you are beating the big boys on service!
DaveI bought some size 14 Mosquitos from you last year and took them to Alaska last September. They proved to be irresistable to the Arctic Grayling. I must have caught 2 dozen Grayling on your mosquitos. Then I tried a mosquito that I bought from another shop, and didn't get a bite. The results speak for themselves!
JoeI received my order yesterday and the flies look terrific. I generally tie my own nymphs but lately I haven't had time. In the past I purchased from other online stores and websites but by far your flies are the best quality I have received.
DonaldExcellent flies that have already caught fish for me. I used another discount shop over the internet last year, but your flies are definitely better. I will purchase from you again.
StevenI was completely satisfied with your flies, and thought it was awesome how you separated the fly type by name and container, and marked each container. This is hands-down the best condition I've received flies in from anyone. And the flies look great too. Thanks so much, I will buy from you again!
MikeJust this morning I caught a 1lb wild brown trout in the Clonnard-River, County Roscommon Ireland on a hares ear nymph I purchased from you. Cheers
PatNot only am I pleased ,but actually pleasantly surprised by the quality of the ties, the ease of ordering, and the speed in delivering. I am now going through my dry flies to place another order. Your web page will be added to my favorites. Thank you,
HarryI have been pleased with the flies and the service that you provide. It has been a delight to do business with you. Most businesses out there could take a lesson from the way you run your store. I am not inclined to brag up any business out there but those that I do I will support strongly. I wish most businesses were like yours but that's not always the case. I have only had one problem with your flies and that was an Adams size 22 that got tore up after the sixth brown trout took it and mangled it up (that's a good Problem!) Brown trout seem to be a little rough on flies. I'll have to stock up on more of those on the next order I place. Just to let you know I received the last order of flies today. Again the quality is excellent! Thanks!
RobertThanks for the follow up and all the personal service, it is a nice change. I will definitely be doing business with you for in the future. Thanks For the great flies at a great price.
RyanI've tried a number of different sources for flies and feel that your company offers the best price value relation on the market. Rest assured, I'll be ordering more very soon as our dry fly season approaches. Thanks for the follow up....it's impressive. Kind Regards,
JoeYour flies were wonderful!. I had my dream day on the South Fork of the Walla Walla River in Northeastern Oregon this weekend. 19 and 20 inch Rainbows all day long on a Royal Stimulator. That fly took a beating, but it kept on catching fish. Thank you very much!.
ThorinHello from the Roaring Fork Valley. Your flies and service are great! I have ordered from you 3 times now, and have been very happy. So far, with your flies, I have caught bonefish, permit, rainbows, browns, brookies, greenback cutts, colorado river cutts and hopefully many more species. Thanks,
SteveJust to let you know I received my order today with no problems. The flies look as good as usual. Also, I appreciate the note you put on my copy of the order. I will continue to buy from you. Nobody else even comes close to what you sell your flies for and the service is terrific.
RobertI was very satisfied with my flies. Thanks for the personal service (and those few extra flies you snuck in to my order).
MarkI must say I am pleasantly surprised at my flies. They are good quality. I was not expecting this. My immediate reaction to "Discount Flies" was "Poor quality Flies". But in fact they were quite the opposite. How you sell these at such low prices and maintain your quality I am not sure. Whatever it is you do, by all means keep doing it. You can be assured that you have gained a regular costomer. Also, I liked the personal message in the package- It added a quality of care for the costomer that other companies don't offer. I commend you on your excellence in your products.
WillI just wanted to let you know how great your web site is, and how fast I got my order. Your flies are a lot better and cost less than the flies I was getting at my local sports store. I was really impressed and I will be making all my fly purchases through you guys!!! Great Job
DamonI want to just say that the flies are first class and the service goes without saying. It's nice to know that someone still knows what service is all about. Thanks again!
Bob...you filled my order faster than any one else, Orvis, Cabela's etc
DaveThank you for shipping my flies in such an quick and efficient manner. I'm pleased with both the quality and the price of your merchandise. Good work.
JeffEverything arrived in good shape. Flies are very nicely done. Glad (and surprised) you can sell them for what you do.
JayTo my surprise, I received my flies just 2 days after placing the order and could not be happier with my purchase. Not only with the turn around time but with their exceptional quality. I really couldn't ask for anything more. I may end up moving back east soon, but I will certainly continue to buy flies from you. I have already told some friends about your shop and will do so from now on. Thanks very much and keep up the great work. Sincerely,
RussI just would like to inform you that the shipment has arrived. Thank you for the excellent service. The flies look great :-) I'll be letting my friends know where to purchase their flies from now on.
GeraldI received my order this morning of your flies and I was really impressed with the quality of them. I had a light client day at work and decided to hit the river. I tied on your size eight Black Matuka Red Head. On my second cast I hooked, caught and release. a nineteen inch three pound plus Rainbow. Just wanted to say thanks. I'm sure I'll be buying a lot more all year long. Please E-mail me any newsletters you might put out through the year, your website is forever saved in my system. Thanks again,
PhilI JUST WANTED TO SAY, "GREAT JOB!" I ORDERED FROM YOU PREVIOUSLY AND WAS GREATLY PLEASED WITH YOUR TIMELINESS, AND QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP. I WILL MOST DEFINITELY BE ORDERING FROM YOU IN THE FUTURE, AND WILL BE RECOMMENDING YOU TO ALL MY FLYFISHING BUDDIES. REGARDS,
BARTThank you for your prompt delivery of my last shipment, it arrived just in time for a fishing trip, and your flies did a wonderful job. Thank you.
JerryThanks for the quick turnaround. I actually received the flies in Saturday's mail. Hope to do business with you again. The flies you sent look real good. Now only if they will catch me some trout! Regards...........
JBI have just placed an order and I'm sending this email per your instructions. I received the last order of flies within just 2 days of placing my order and found them of excellent quality. Keep up the great work. Thanks.

StauntThanks for your quick response. With service like this, I can assure that I will be doing business with you for a while.
MorganI received your flies today. They're beautiful flies, and I thank you for your help on tracking the order.
LeonardoI would like to thank your for the personal note that you left on my order. My brother and I understand that sometime you run out of flies. We appreciate the extras that you through in, it more then made you for what you ran out of. I would also like to express how please I am at the quality of your flies. I have just started teaching my brother to fly fish and your courtesy, helped to show him the respect and kinship that flyfishermen have for each other.
Adam and Stephen. Just received my order and was very satisfied with the quality and workmanship of the flies. Kudos to you all for a fine product and rest assured I'll be a repeat customer
RichI have never received such communication and service from any other company. I'll be back!
