Lakeland Fly-Tying began trading in January 2000 and over the last 16 years we have strived to become the modern, efficient online and mail-order business we pride ourselves on being today. Over the years we have developed a reputation amongst our many valued customers for carefully selecting and stocking high quality products and presenting them at the right price. As we have grown, we have invested a great deal in improving our ability to serve our customers better - introducing sophisticated stock management and order processing systems to ensure your experience of shopping with us is both fast and efficient. This allows us to ensure that all orders received before 1.00pm (GMT) will be winging their way to you that very same day.

Success has not been easy. The last 13 years must have been one of the most testing periods in history for a fledgling business. Outbreaks of the foot and mouth disease in 2001 destroyed our second year of business. This was followed by avian flu and then what seemed like years of severe weather throughout the Summer. It destroyed many of the Game Fairs we attended and, to some degree, depended on not just to sell but to say a fond "hello" to our faithful supporters. Just when you think things can't get much worse we enter the worst recession for a generation. Throughout this period Lakeland has developed and adapted to become a much stronger and driven business; one with a clear and strong business plan that is determined to be here for you for many years to come.

Through hard work and a determination, Lakeland have developed incredibly strong relationships with the world's biggest suppliers and with the support of companies like Whiting FarmsRenzettiHMHDyna-King,WapsiPartridge and Veniards we now stock extensive product ranges from your favourite and most trusted brands. As the economy improves, Lakeland will continue to develop the product ranges so you can enjoy the many new items arriving each and every month. Lakeland's aim over the next few years is to increase product availability and offer our customers an even faster and even more efficient purchasing system with a web site that is both a pleasure to use and browse.

… and don't forget, if you need advice on our service, our products or even how to make the best use of the things that you buy, give Lakeland a call. We're here to help.

    Description

    Season :

    Code : 0117017

    Weight : 0KG

    Wapsi Thin Skin as for a long time, been Nigel’ Favourite product for Czech Nymphs and Thorax Covers and it comes in 28 colours. Check out the patterned sheets the Mottled Bustard LOOKS SO GOOD ON YOUR CZECH NYMPHS! Very easy to use, it comes on a white card and is best cut using a sharp model knife like the Razor Knife we stock. Hot Tip Rib with double strength nylon to get really good segments on the back of your nymphs!

    Thin Skin is a .004″ thick, stretchable and transparent sheet material that has a matte finish on one side and a shiny finish on the other. It is backed with a paper backing which makes it easy to cut into strips of all sizes. When the paper is removed, the transparent sheet can easily be tied onto the fly.The printed patterns on our Thin Skin can create an extremely realistic and/or dramatic look to the fly. Because Thin Skin stretches and compresses when thread or wire is wrapped around it, it is an ideal material to use for shellbacks on flies such as scuds or sowbugs or for wing cases on nymphs of all types. Many bass and saltwater fly tyers often use it to tie segmented crayfish and shrimp patterns.

    • Awesome for wing cases and shellbacks

    Sizing Information

    The Hackle Club

    in partneship with whiting farms, Usa

    For nearly 18 months now, fly-tiers around the world have struggled to get the Whiting Farms hackles they need to pursue their passion for tying. We are 100% committed to you, our prized and trusted customers ... our fly-tying friends. In order to make the very best attempts to ensure that you get what you need; when you need it, we have created the Lakeland Fly-tying Hackle Club.

    Technical Information

    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
