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.

    The Next Generation of fly tying beads.

    The innovative Nymph-Head™ design significantly improved the common, round fly tying bead when it was launched in 2007. The simple addition of realistic 3D “nymph eyes” created a more realistic fly profile. It also added 15-20% more tungsten weight to the bead which greatly improved the sink rate of the fly. These features were combined with a wide range of vibrant new colors in a scratch-resistant anodized coating to produce an advanced fly tying product that allows fly tiers to make any ordinary fly pattern extraordinary!

    Five reasons why Nymph-Head™ Heavy Metal tungsten beads are better:

    1. A more realistic fly profile.
    2. The fastest sinking tungsten beads on the planet.
    3. The widest range of color options in a superior anodized finish.
    4. In your fly box you can easily tell which beadhead flies are tungsten and which are brass.
    5. Best packaging with step-by-step tying instructions for original fly patterns.

    1. More Realistic Fly Profile

    Nymph-Head™ beads have realistic 3D “nymph eyes” that imitate the eyes of natural insects. This an improvement upon the common round fly tying bead and enables the fly tier to create more effective and realistic imitations of aquatic trout food!

    As an option, eye color can be easily added in seconds by using a fine-tip paint marker, vinyl jig paint or a permanent, waterproof marker to suit the desired nymph pattern. This offers the fly tier an endless range of color combinations and fly variations. See How to add eye color.

    2. Fastest sinking tungsten beads on the planet.

    15-20% extra tungsten material is used in manufacturing resulting in a bead that is significantly heavier than normal round tungsten beads. When fishing you will see a noticeable increase in sink rate as your fly gets down to the “feeding zone” quicker!

    3. The widest range of color options in a superior anodized finish.

    Nymph-Head™ Heavy Metal beads are available in 10 colors giving the fly tier fisherman the widest choice of color options on the market today. There are 15 beads per pack.

    Natural Fly colors includes beads in Caddis Green, Mayfly Brown, Baetis Green-Olive and Stonefly Black colors.

    Nymph Head Heavy Metal Tungsten Beads ,  On

    The Tungsten beads in Green Copper and Gold I have found to be ideal in tying my own Damsel Pattern which I have trialed over 2years at Dever Spring Fishery. The added weight of the tungsten beads tied in as to represent eyes, brings added weight to the fly pattern, which in turn gets the nymph down quickly to where the Trout are feeding on the naturals.

    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.
