I was very pleased with your service. I normally tie my own flies or purchase them locally. However, for my first saltwater trip I needed to go online to get the flies I need. I ordered from Discount Flies and two other budget priced fly shops and found Discount Flies to be far superior. I received your flies quicker and truly appreciate that they were labelled. One of the other shops flies are not consistent in their materials. Your flies look fine to me and I look forward to testing them in Belize in April. Thank you for your service.
I 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.
I 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.
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
I 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.
Hey 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!!!!
Mike 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.
Mike 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.
I 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,
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,
As 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".
Just 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.
I 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.
Hello! 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.
My 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.
I 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!!
I 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.
The 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
a tandem rig with a bead head, they always take the real meal. I'm hoping
five dozen will get me through the year.
I received the flies and all was well.
I really like the quality of them. I've bought some flies through
other discount merchants, but when I got them in I was disappointed in
Received 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?
I 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!
I 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!
I 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.
Excellent 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.
I 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
Just 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
Not 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.
I 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 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
I'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
Your 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!.
Hello 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,
Just 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.
I was very satisfied with my flies. Thanks for
the personal service (and those few extra flies you snuck in to my
I 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
I 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!!!
I 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!
...you filled my order faster than any one else,
Orvis, Cabela's etc
Thank 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.
Everything arrived in good shape. Flies are very
nicely done. Glad (and surprised) you can sell them for what you
To 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.
I 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
I 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.
I 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
Thank 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.
Thanks 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!
I 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 for the great service, you came highly recommended. Have a great
thank you for the great looking flies. If the fish like the looks
anywhere as much as I do, we will have a great time.
Thanks for your quick response. With service like this, I can assure that
I will be doing business with you for a while.
I received your flies today. They're beautiful flies, and I thank you for
your help on tracking the order.
I 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
I have never received such communication and service from any other
company. I'll be back!
Thank you very much for the personalized service/response. It's
truly refreshing in this day and age. You've got yourself a loyal customer because
of it - and I'll pass the word on to my friends. Thanks again.
In only three days of placing my order, I received some of the best flies
I have ever seen. Thank you so much. I will recommend your site to all
my flyfishing friends.
Just want to let you know i think you guys are great. You have one of if not the best
selection of flies i have ever seen. I just placed my second order today and
will continue to give you my business. Thanks a lot.
I wanted to thank you for your prompt service, it has been a pleasure and
I will return.

Thanks for the very prompt delivery of a great
looking bunch of flies (they arrived on Tuesday!) ... I'm sneaking
out early today, so I'll let you know how they do for me.
