Big Y is the best on planet earth...love it! Greg Levad
This by far, the best confirmation letter ever written. I
read the letter and I now have complete confidence in both your products and
your company. Well done!
My order arrive today and I couldn't have been more pleased. I added your site
to my favorites and will let my friends know about you. They're a little
reluctant to order flies on line but a Royal Wulff is a Royal Wulff no matter
where you but it. Not being an avoid fisherman if you put a Royal Wulff on
a table in front of me I couldn't tell you what was to save my life. Offering
different colors and sizes was a great help.
When I standing in the Madison River in Yellowstone this year I'll
remember where I bought these when I catch the big one. :-)
Thanks for the great speed and service.
Thanks! I just wanted to let you know that the flies I got about a week ago are
very nice! I used them up on the Rangeley river last weekend and the Brookies
couldn't help themselves!
was recommended by a friend of mine who is a guide here in WNY. I am taking a
trip to C.O. in 3 weeks and needed some flies stat. I don't have the time to
tie them all or even have the resources to do so. Thank you so much for the
speediness of my order. I will be fishing the Blue river, Frying Pan River,
Taylor River, Gunnison River, Animas River and the San Juan River in my week roadtrip
from Denver to Durango. Should be a blast. I will def. use you guys for my fly
fishing purchases, and of course tell all my tight line brothers.
Just got my order in, everything
looks great, im gonna go get them wet after the weekend. Thanks again, and for
the sticker too! That way when I'm hauling in a striper all I gotta do is point
at my basket. :D James
Received the prince nymphs and if I need more
flies I definitely will let you know. I am very, very happy with the
quality of prince nymphs you sent.
Not much need for the prince nymphs here on the
beach in South Carolina right now, but we will be fishing the Smokey Mountains
for a week in June of this year and we have rented a cabin in West Yellowstone
MT, for a couple of weeks this September too. So they will get a
good workout in the streams around West Yellowstone and in the ones in the
Smokey mountains of North Carolina.
I have been spending a whole lot of time at my
vise tying flies for both trips: hoppers, hares ears, stone fly nymphs, Adams, PMD’s,
hair wing Rio Grande kings (my favorite fly for searching) and just didn’t have
the time to do the princes.
I am sure my wife and I will be releasing some
great fish and will send you pictures of them and the streams we fish on both
Good Afternoon Mr. Larsen,
Thank you for the quick turn on shipping my order, I truly
appreciate it. Of course, I waited 'til the last minute to purchase the
flies and you came through in the clutch as advertised. I will definitely
pass the word along to my fishin' buddies.
Any fish I get into I will be more than happy to share with
y'all, but... don't expect much, my fly fishing technique contains plenty of
L.O.F.T (Lack Of Flippin' Talent).
Have a great day Mr. Larsen and I look forward to ordering
from you in the near future,
WOW , now that's what i call SERVICE .
Thank you so much , got my fly order delivered to the
office here today. That's great turn-around time.
Everything looks GREAT . Can't wait to go try'em
We will be doing business again , plus i'm going to
snap some pictures of my new fly order and
email and recommend you guy's to it to my buddy ( Charlie
Hughes , a.k.a. The Trout Boss ) in Kansas City that run's our trout camps
, we have 3 a year we go on , over in Missouri .
Can't wait to refill my boxes. I place a large order every
Spring and I am thrilled having found an affordable source.
Please don't tell the local shops.
I know you probably get some complaints so I thought I
would express my appreciation for the terrific quality of the flies I have
received from you this Spring. Out of the several hundred flies I have received
from you, there were only two defective flies, one with a head unwrapping and
the other with a broken barb. I view this as outstanding quality assurance on
your part. Also, every order was correctly packed, no shortages or wrong sizes.
Kudos to the pickers and checkers. On top of that, the price can't be
beat....way to go Big Y! -Russel
The flies are beautiful; the quality is as good as any
fly costing $2.00 or more.
I can't believe that you were able to fill my order and
get them to Pennsylvania in TWO days.Amazing!!
Thanks,I'll definitely be ordering more.
Just received my first order from BIG Y FLY. I ordered small as I was not sure of the
quality or service. What a great
surprise! Quality flies, great service,
personal touch. You will be the only
supplier of my fly fishing needs. BTW,
I'm teaching a couple of young ladies to FF, They will be ordering from your
company as well.
Best advertising is word of mouth, and I have a BIG
Just wanted to take the time and thank you for the recent
I order I received from you. Prompt shipping and most importantly excellent quality
flies. Unbelievable the quality of flies at the prices you sell them for. You
definetly have a repeat customer. When it's time to reload you will be
definetly getting my business. Again, can't thank you enough for the
outstanding service and excellent quality. If you would lie to use my comments
as a testimional on your Web Site it would indeed be my pleasure for you to do
so. Regards Mark
KUDOS to you. I'm a veteran tyer who has gotten away from
trout patterns for probably 20 years. Recently I decided to tie some catskill
flies so when I go to visit my daughter at college I could take some time to sample the blue ribbon
waters in that region. After several moves and assorted household calamities my
supplys where not in the shape I had remembered. I started off with march
browns, only to remember my dubbing supply had been ruined in a fire sprinkler
mis hap.My cat than supplied the the make shift dubbing. Not knowing where my
pattern books were,I refered to the internet for a refresher of what a
hendrickson should looked like, and thats how I stumbled onto your web site.After
scrolling threw your extensive inventory and seeing how rediculusly low the
prices where, I knew there and then, that it didnt pay for me to resupply and
tie again.My only concern was the quality. Today I recieved my order,and very
quickly I might add,and I am thrilled with the quality of these flies. The
hackle is firm and the proportions are correct! flies in this price range are
generaly from China with oversized soft webby hackle that would be hard to fool
a bluegill with.Anyway I hope your business flurishes and I can continue to
access your opperation. In addition to dry flies, I also sampled some salt
water flies and some large mouth hair bugs, they all look spectacular.No
question that they are going to work...... cant wait for spring to give them a
try. thank for a cheap alternative to
tying myself! Paul
I just wanted to take a second to tell everyone at Big Y
Fly how much I like the great products and GREAT customer service.In todays
world customer service takes a back seat to the almighty dollar,but I believe
you folks have done it right.I will continue to purchase from your company and
hope to find you in business for many years to come.Tight lines to you all from
Georgia and hope to be sending some more money your way soon.
You guys are awesome.
Thanks for providing such a great service and product
Thanks a lot – some of the flies
arrived yesterday before I took off for the week and I really appreciate your
quick turnaround. Be well, always,
BUMP Williams Consulting Company
It has always been a pleasure
doing business with Big Y Fly. I still enjoy tying and creating new
patterns, but your quality and prices have definitely freed up a good deal of
time that I used to dedicate to the tying bench. My most recent purchase
was made for a friend who knew nothing about fly fishing but who needed
to put together a Christmas present for a family member who lives in
Virginia (so both cold water and warm water patterns were required). I
was happy to help with the fly selections. I have recommended Big Y Fly
to 5 fishing buddies. They are now regular customers.
I’m a very small business
owner. I know the importance of providing an excellent product at an fair
price and then following up with exceptional support. It seems that
we often take the time to complain if something is wrong but never take the
time to let someone know when they are doing a great job. You are doing a
I'm not sure I
understand how you provide quality flies at such great prices, but I'll take
it, whether I understand it or not. I do Alaska wilderness trips every
year, give presentations to fly clubs and outdoor organizations. So far,
these trips have just been for myself, friends and family, but it looks
like it's going to lead to some sort of guide business, although extremely
limited. I have another profession that pays substantially more (and
is easier) than the guide business. But I love fly fishing, Alaska,
wilderness,wildlife, wilderness photography, so we'll see what profession wins
out. Obviously, I will be needing a lot of Alaska fly patterns, so I
feel fortunate to have found your company. Thank you for providing
quality flies at a more-than-reasonable rate. John Squires
I will, I recommend you guys to all my friends for cost
effective, good quality flies. Been a loyal customer for 2 years now and
hopefully I send you a erie pa steelhead photo soon

Hey just wanted to let you know that I used the flies I
purchased from your business when I took my 8 and 11 year old fly fishing and
they are hooked. We had a blast and this was their first time fishing
with a fly rod.
Craig F. Bolling
You guys are the real deal. I live and fish in
Northwestern Montana for Cutthroat, Rainbows and Browns. I am a dry fly
fisherman and no dropper fly however effective they are. Big cutthroat love
your March Browns as Rainbows love the large stimulators. Your Salmonflies are
outstanding as are your green drakes which, during their hatch, catch the
larger browns. Your prices are perfect and I cannot thank you enough for
keeping them down.
Just wanted to say thank you. The flies were execellent
and better than expected. Shipping was fast. I was worried they would not get
her before by birthday fishing trip. You had hand written thank you on the
invoice. It is I who should thank you.
Thank you for expediting my order.
The flies arrived moments ago, and shortly will be on their way to the Colorado
Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for
the very nice flys at a really nice price! I know the bass are going to
Also thanks for the amazing delivery.
Ordered on Thursday and arrived in my mail box in Indiana on Saturday!
I will definitely be ordering from you again.
Thanks again, John
wanted to let you know that I received the order Friday evening when I arrived
not the main reason I wanted to reply.
want to commend your customer service. I'm very impressed that I received a
phone call from you early the morning following my email to you. Most companies
take days to send an email reply and would probably not even consider calling
the customer. I wanted to return the call but your number did not show up on my
phone and I was not near email to late in the day.
I'm very impressed with the fact that you were willing to do whatever it took
to see that I received the flies that I had ordered and that my fishing trip
plans remained in tact. The fact is that I can order similar products, at
similar prices from any number of places. What I believe sets a company apart
is how they treat their customers. The big test is how they react when there is
a problem. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the way you handled
this situation. The flies look good and hopefully they fish and hold up as good
as they look. I will be happy and confident ordering from you again and telling
friends about your stand up company.
you again for the wonderful service.
for understanding my frustration.
sure you realize that when an order is not received, you will be the one the
customer holds responsible. After all, we send you our money, not the post
office. I fully understand that this is not fair to your company when you have
fulfilled all of your obligations, but that is our knee jerk reaction as a
customer. In spite of the problems with the post office you went above and
beyond to take care of me as your customer. Thanks again.
Thanks for the outstanding service!
I wanted to send this e-mail and say "thank
you" for the flies I ordered. I
used them on the South Fork of the Holston River, in Southwest Virginia. Landed several good trout using the Jennsen

Just wanted to say thank you for your integrity, and your
continued efforts towards customer satisfaction.
I got the McSalmon flies in the mail yesterday. Thank you.
Didn't really expect them to be sent, as I know things happen when
filling large orders.....but thank you again.
You folks are the best !
Just a note to let you know I have told several of my
friends about you and at least one of them has ordered flies from Big Y Fly
Co. As an aside a well known sporting goods/fly fishing company has sent
me coupons in the past for free flies. I've tried them and found them to
be inferior to the Big Y flies. Although I don't get a chance to fish
that often and therefore don't lose many flies, you will always have my business.
Just wanted to send a short note. I
can not tell you how pleased I have been with the flies I have received from
you this Spring! I have been fly fishing for over 30 years and your prices and
quality have made an "old Maine fisherman" extremely happy. I now
live in Salt Lake City and have been adapting my ,somewhat stubborn old Yankee
habits and ideas, to to this great Western fishing. I have passed your name on
to all my old and new fishing
again, Ron Fotos
I have been happy with the products
you have provided on my behalf. I have told my friends and family all ove the U
S about your service. Keep up the good work.
Don Hesse Sr3/21/2011
I love the easy site and your flys are the
best. Thanks for all your hard work!!3/11/2011
It's quick consumer service, along with compettive
pricing, that will keep me coming back to the Big Y.
It has been a privilege to continue ordering
these high-quality American made flies from Big Y Fly. The materials and
craftsmanship in each fly I have received surpass most other flies I have
seen/bought at brand name retail chains for double the price.
Thank you for offering these superb flies to us at such a reasonable price! I
look forward to landing many fish with them.
At 70 I'm new to fly fishing so I have some
comments to make.3/7/2011
Your website was one of the clearest and easy-to-use I have come across. Living
in the mountains, far from any store, I use the web a lot and you have made it
easy for me to spend my Social Security. Absolutely no frustration (try buying
seeds, ammo or women on line sometime).
New Pine Creek, OR
I have all ready started telling my fishing
friends ,all about your web-site. Colorado,Maryland, West Virginia and of
course North Carolina here. It`s cheaper to buy from you, then make them
today.You can quote me on your web or catolog. Thanks for being there for
fisherman. Jim Shipe
writing to tell you how happy I am with your products and your service.
We;ve spread the word around here and have gotten your company seven new
customers and one fly shop. We appreciate your 2/22/2011
speedy turnaround and attention to orders. you are the most problem free online
company I've dealt with, thank you for making it easy!! more customers to come,
love your flies. Photo's comin. Fran LaFlash
The flies arrived and they look great-thanks!
I was looking over your web site and flies
which I must say are very nice and reasonable in price . I can't begin to thank
you enough for the Hatch Charts for the Maine rivers . I have lived in Maine my
whole life ( 51 yrs ) and this is my second year fly fishing and I LOVE IT . My
first fish on a gray ghost was a 7lb brookie ( A former breeder from the
hatchery but released into the wild ) what a battle and I released it to
continue to live and possibly make someone elses day ! Again Thank you Dan2/21/2011
this is my second order with you guys and im
very pleased. i have told my friends and family about you. i cant tie flies for
how how much you sell them for ha ha thanks so much and looking forward to
many more orders with you Erik Crone :)
I just received my order and am very pleased with the overall shopping
experience. Your prices are outstanding as was the shipping time.
Thanks for the extra woolly worm. I'll throw it this weekend and see if
the trout will take it. Hopefully, I'll have some pictures to send soon.
Thank you very much. Appreciate your quick response to the
email. Look forward to the receipt of
the flies, and even more, the opportunity to use them.
Thanks once again for your fast transaction
and great dry flies. I appreciate it every time.9/19/2010
Thank you. Love you flies will be placing another big order
in Feb or May. Have a great Holiday season. Another happy fly fisherman.
Thanks for the notification. I look forward to the fly order
arriving. I have purchased 2 or 3 orders last year and was very pleased with
the quality and how well the flys worked in catching the rainbow trout near us.
Can you believe that only two hours north of Dallas TX, there is a spring fed
river that is lined with rock and bolder bottom in Oklahoma. They stock
rainbows from October to April. It gives us the feel of a mountain river with
pools, falls, ripples and deep runs.
I have let all my fly fishing buddies know about you…and I am sure
some of them have placed orders as well. I will continue to promote your great
service. And, I will send some photos this year when we get started this fall.
P.S. I only wish we had access to the type of places that are
around you in Oregon. Maybe we will plan a trip that way sometime…and we can
let you know so you can give us tips on where to go and what to use.
My shipment arrived today just in time for my trip.
Thank you so much for your prompt service and excellent selection.
Thanks for your quick service. I did not get any pictures of the
cutthroats I caught on Rock Creek on Aug 17 near Phillipsburg MT as I was
fishing by myself. The spruce fly imitations I bought from you worked
great. I fished for about two hours, landed 12 cutts from 10-16 inches and
had that many more on. The real live spuce moths were all over the place and
the fish were eating them up. Your flies held up to the abuse they were
receiving from the trout. I have told several of my fishing companions about
your company and they all ask, in reference to the low price, how well the
flies hold up. I can honestly tell them that those I have used so far hold
up as good as any $2.00 flies I have purchased elsewhere. Terrific price for
quality flies. The order I just placed is the third one and you can be assured
there will be more orders in the future. Maybe I'll have some pictures to go
along with my next fishing tale.
Cameron, got my fly order today and they look
Old Hickory, TN8/27/2010
Flies arrived today, looking great. Thanks for everything, and if my luck ever
changes and I catch a fish worth talking about, I'll let you know! ;)
