Value for Money
Q: What do I get for my money?
A: Whether you order Selectafly’s Original or Pro Range you get unique, quality flies which represent great value for money. These flies are all hand tied using the best quality materials and hooks - tied specifically to our exacting standards - but due to natural variations in the materials used, the flies may vary slightly from the pictures on our website.

Postage and Delivery
Q: How much will postage be?
A: For all online orders of flies only of £20 or more to UK postcodes postage is FREE. Ever increasing postage and packing costs mean that on orders of less than £15 we now must charge £2.45 postage and packing. For bulky items, products and/or boxed selections, which cannot be sent as a large letter, we will now have to charge the small package mailing cost of £4.45. These items include fly boxes, floatants or other heavy and bulky products.
Overseas orders incur air mail costs which will be calculated according to your shipping address. All current postage charges can be found in the Shipping Section.
Q: When will I get my order?
A: We aim to process any order received before 2pm SAME DAY. Should additional Fulling Mill products be required they are usually received overnight and sent out the following working day. However, please note Fulling Mill do not work over the weekend.

A: We offer a range of postal options including guaranteed next day delivery, or, if abroad, an expedited service. Please call us to discuss the options available and allow us to confirm prices.

A: Yes, not a problem. When you order online please complete the shipping address section as well. If you are ordering by any other method please notify us of the address to which you want your order sending .

A: Yes - either order online or please call us on 01753 883366 so we may take all the details we require. Vouchers start from £10 and are available thereafter in either £5 or £10 incremental amounts.
Q: How do I redeem a Gift Voucher?
A: To redeem a voucher simply go shopping! Fill your basket with your chosen items and complete the name, address and contact details as usual. Then make sure to add the Voucher number in the Additional Notes for Selectafly section. Choose to check out via the Sagepay button and when you are directed to the page where you would normally pay for the basket 'abort' your order. This ensures you are not charged but allows us to see all the items ordered, complete with delivery address. If there is any discrepancy between the voucher amount and basket value we will contact you immediately.
Q: Where are your flies tied?
A: The Selectafly Original Range are hand tied in Kenya. The Pro Range are hand tied for us in Sri Lanka. We work closely with all our suppliers to ensure high standards are maintained and to show them personally how to tie the new patterns we introduce.
Q: I want a fly custom tied – can you help?
A: Yes. Selectafly has specialists in the UK who we work with in order to offer you a custom tying service. Call us on 01753 883366 so we can discuss your exact requirements and advise on pricing and timing (usually, although this does depend on time of year, amounts required and the difficulty of each pattern, it may be possible to get your order completed inside three weeks).
Q: Can you explain salmon tube sizes?
A: Tubes are now all measured in millimetres. However if you prefer to think of inches these are the equivalents:
1/4" = 06mm
2/5" = 10mm
1/2" = 13mm
3/4" = 19mm
1" = 25mm
1 3/4" = 32mm
1 1/2" = 38mm
Q: How do you choose the flies for Fly Selections?
A: Our fly selections offer you a discount on buying each fly separately. The individual flies may be subject to change, but will always include the best and most effective range of flies appropriate to their category, providing you a good balance of size and colours.
Q: Some companies offer incentives, do you?
A: We think you’d prefer us to keep postage costs to a minimum and our prices as competitive as possible every time you order, rather than offer extra flies or something you haven’t ordered in the first place!
