    Bulk fly drying powder

    In light of your very reasonable comments I have changed the product description to say 'waterproof' rather than 'dry'. The name is staying though because, well it is the name and if you actually say it out loud it doesn't sound quite the same as it reads. We actually do sell genuine Fomes...

    Bulk fly drying powder

    No, he has actually maligned every small business in Britain at a time when we need to be encouraged - saying you can buy everything cheaper elsewhere isn't helpful. If I was selling the powder in bulk as it came to me with a huge mark up then he would have a point. We aren't, there has been...

    You gentleman are having fun aren't you :) Obviously you can find it cheaper in loose bulk quantities on the internet, you can find everything cheaper on the internet as has been mentioned.

    Bulk fly drying powder

    Hi Steven, Bet you never have this much trouble with your furled leaders:) It is amazing how some people are prepared to spend so much effort in a fairly pointless semantic debate. If you fish with flies which have a CdC wing or post you will know that after it has been in a fish drying with...

    Obviously Bill's definition of 'old' depends on how old you are yourself....... (hint: he'll be the one with the 'special eyebrows' :D ) He is right though, you are all obviously more than welcome to pop by and say hello. We will have some special offers for the show and the more you buy the...

    Can't stop loving Enrico Puglisi Fibres

    FlyTek actually have lots of unusual EP fibre things, I'll be honest not all of it is on the website because 'someone' told me no one would buy it. We do have quite a lot of brush though, including the stuff with legs. There will be some on our stand at BFFI or pm me if you need something, £4 a...

    It was a pleasure eosceiriog, I used to live in Chester and I bought a car from a garage in Rosset so I know the area a little. That is a very interesting little village you live in, is there a reason for the design of the houses? I loved it but it is rather unusual. FlyTek are actually on the...

    who uses Giorgio Benecchi Fly Tying Threads

    Hi John, I tie mainly in the 16 to 20 hook size so I use 12/0. For the sizes you tie the 10/0 would be a better bet, it's also easier to split. Yes we have UV epoxy and UV pens. http://www.flytek.co.uk/index.phproute=product/product&product_id=438 FlyTek UV Laser Pen Regards Bill
