Lakeland Fly-Tying began trading in January 2000 and since then 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.

    WHAT IS STRAGGLE STRING UV?

    At first glance Straggle String UV may seem like many of the other “fritz” type tying materials... Take a closer look though and you will find Straggle String UV  is a carefully developed fly tying material and NOT just another off the peg product poached from the textiles trade.

    A FEW FACTS ABOUT STRAGGLE STRING UV

    • Finer core than typical “fritz” type materials

    • Widest range of natural fly tying colours available

    • Colours chosen by and dyed by the Semper Fli team

    • Coded colours to integrate with the Semper Fli dubbing system

    • Reduced fibre density (less like a blob more like legs or a hackle)

    • Reflective/refractive fibres provide insect-like iridescence

    • Subtle UV properties give the impression of life-like movement

    WHAT CAN STRAGGLE STRING UV BE USED FOR?

    The fact is it’s really up to you... but here are a few tips and tricks from the Semper Fli team to get you started.

    • The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try SF3300 on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colours under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp.

    • Lower fibre density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.

    • The fine core absorbs much less water than standard fritz meaning Straggle String UV can be used in dry fly patterns

    • Finer material means smaller flies. Sizes 16, 18, and 20 can easily be tied.

    • The wide range of natural colours is great for imitating the natural invertebrates that make up fishes’ diet.

    • Bright and fluoro colours are great for “hot spots” or attractor patterns.

    • Natural colours coupled with Straggle String UV’s life-like illusion of movement means simple flies can be tied without the need for other materials. Check out the JP Straggle Nymph!

    My question about Semperfli UV Straggle String Chenille is...

    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.
