New products, new brands!
I take great pride in the quality and effectiveness of the flies I tie. From the quality of the brand name materials I use to the care and extra attention taken during the tying process, the outgoing quality control and the shipping methods, I know that my reputation rides with every fly delivered.
1) I use 3 coats of head cement on most flies; 1 coat of Sally Hansen, 1
coat of colour and a final clear coat.
2) Wings and tails are cemented BEFORE overwrapping.
3) Butts and tags are cemented.
4) Each fly is personally inspected before shipping. If it's not good enough for
my own fly box it is DISCARDED!
If, in normal use, any of the following should occur, return it to me and
I will replace it with 2 completely FREE OF CHARGE.
1) Heads come unraveled
2) Wings or tails fall out
3) Flies arrive damaged in shipping
Exceptions: Damage caused by striking rocks, vegetation etc, damage caused by failing to take proper care of your flies *(see note below), damage caused by fish - they have sharp teeth and can tear up a fly and at this point you should already be happy with the fly - Order a new one (or two)!!
Certain materials such as marabou, herls, etc are inherently fragile and do at times break down.However, while I take great care in selecting the materials I use, and in some cases have discarded materials that I am not satisfied with, if you should find that the materials I use should fade or in some other way deteriorate *(see note below), LET ME KNOW. I will alert the supplier and STOP using that material.and ship you a new fly free of charge.
*NOTE: proper care should be taken with ALL of your flies. Do not leave them exposed to sunlight or extreme heat for extended periods of time - this can cause fading and breakdown of certain materials. Do not leave wet flies in an enclosed container (such as a fly box) for extended periods - this can cause rust and rot.
Although I do inspect these for acceptable quality, and can offer them at an attractive price, I am not able to offer any guarantee or warranty on these flies. Again, if any of these flies should fail the expectations noted above, LET ME KNOW and I will cease to use this supplier.
