We strive to process your order in the quickest possible fashion. Our goal is to ship all in-stock merchandise within 24 hours of receipt of your order.

Back Orders and Out of Stock Items

We try to maintain a complete inventory of all items listed online. If a situation arises where we are unable to fill your entire order, you will be notified to discuss the order status. We can ship in stock items immediately and back ordered items when they all arrive, or hold your order until it is complete and ship at that time. Orders with back ordered items will NOT be charged shipping charges a second time, unless it is an international order.

All back orders are given priority when new merchandise arrives at our shop, so your wait should be a short one, usually 7-14 days. Generally, no back orders will be held longer than 30 days and back orders of less than $10 will be canceled.

Foreign Orders

We welcome the oppportunity to assist fly fishers around the world! If you are an international client there are a few things you should know about our shop...

Actual shipping charges are charged on all international shipments. This means you are charged only the actual cost we incur to ship your order. Shipping charges will be calculated at the time your order is packaged for shipment. You will be notified of these charges and a separate payment for shipping charges will be requested. International shipping charges are not included in your invoice at the time your order is placed online. You will be billed separately for shipping charges.

We never mark up shipping charges to make profit. We also believe small international orders should not bear the same flat-rate shipping cost as large orders. Small orders will, at a minimum, be charged $23.95 for U.S. Priority Mail International charges.

Many countries charge duties or taxes once a package arrives in customs. We have no control of these charges, and these charges (if any) are never included in our shipping charges.

All foreign orders will be shipped via Federal Express, US Postal Service Express Mail International, or US Postal Service Priority Mail International. Each country has their own size restrictions for each method. Therefore, the size and value of your order will help us determine the most reliable method available. For example, a $1000 order would be shipped using Federal Express or USPS Express Mail International as these methods can be fully tracked and insured. We also prefer these methods because they have proven to be the fastest and most reliable in our past experience. A much smaller order may be shipped USPS Priority Mail International in order to keep shipping charges reasonable given the value of the order. The size and value of your order also determines shipping cost. For example, we are unable to ship packages over 42 inches in length to Australia via either US Postal Service method. Therefore packages of this length must be shipped via Federal Express to Australia.

All foreign orders require a phone number.

Not all animal products are able to be shipped outside of the United States. If you order an animal product that we are unable to ship to your home country we will notify you and a refund for that product will be granted.
