During this lockdown fly tying has been a real help. Most retailers have shut up completely or are taking orders only. TEF not only have had 97% of what I required but got it to me within days. Cannot thank you enough for helping me through these trying times 🤗🤗

At a time when companies and postal services are very erratic in their delivery times my order from Essential Fly arrived the next day - very impressed.

Took up fly tying as a new hobby during lock down, so did not have much idea of what to purchase.
Visited several websites and loaded three baskets.
Ordered what I believe would be good to start me up from Essential Fly as they appeared to have the most items l needed, the others did not supply some items. I found that the prices were competitive also if not cheaper.
On making contact with Essential Fly through email to ask questions, l received very quick responses with a personal touch.
Considering the situation and a bank holiday falling just after l placed the order order, the items all came reasonably quick and more importantly, ALL items were in the package where as my mate ordered from elsewhere and some of his items were missing.
I would definately recommend Essential Fly for your fly tying needs.
Thanks Essential Fly for fulfilling my great new hobby, l can't wait to try out my homemade flies after Covid 19 lock down ends. 😷👍😁

Ordered during this COVID crisis and was my first order with your company. I received a phone call from a very kind lady to discuss my order and was most pleased by this, I have since placed a further order and delivery was excellent.
I will be placing further orders with you as your service is 1st Class.
A special thanks to the lady on the phone.
Kind regards,
