What if not all my flies are in stock?
At these prices, we move out a lot of flies. We sometimes run out of patterns and or sizes or color variations. We will ship all the items of your order that are in stock within 48 hours. If your items will be back in stock within 30 days, we backorderthe part of your order is out of stock, and give you the choice to wait for the balance of your order to be shipped or to receive a refund immediately. If you were shorted flies not marked out of stock and choose to wait for your flies, we will add two extra flies per pattern shorted.
At our discretion we may immediately refund the purchase price of out of stock items. This is done if the order was shorted very little product, or if it is going to be a long delay, or if the items were on sale or clearance.

How do you sell flies for so cheap?
The short answer is Big Y Fly Co Inc sells so many, and our entire company strives to be a model of efficiency. From the way we purchase hooks directly from Mustad and Daiichi to the way our advertising is mostly done through word of mouth from our customers. Every aspect of our company is focused on keeping costs down without sacrificing quality. We tie our own flies, and sell many millions of dozens to wholesalers, who mark them up before selling them to fly retailers who mark them up again. By purchasing through Big Y Fly Co Inc. you are bypassing this chain of distribution thereby by passing the additional mark ups. We also do not have the expense of a brick and mortar store, which eliminates the biggest overhead of retail.
