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.

    Mini Sculpin Helmet

    The Mini Sculpin Helmet is a smaller, versatile version of the popular Fish-Skull® Sculpin Helmet that has been specially developed for tying a broad range of freshwater and saltwater flies.

    The “Mini” is the newest addition to the Sculpin Helmet family and is perfect for tying smaller, weighted streamers to target freshwater species such as trout and saltwater “flats” species such as bonefish and redfish.

    The smaller head is much lighter and about the same width as standard size bead-chain eyes. This makes for easier casting and allows the fly to enter the water with less disturbance than heavier versions or dumbbells. In addition, the Mini Sculpin Helmet has an innovative new weed guard feature and is designed to fit a much larger range of hook sizes.

     Key Features:

    • A smaller and lighter Sculpin Helmet.
    • Fits hooks in the #10 up to #2 hook size range.
    • Innovative new weed guard feature.
    • Larger, more bulbous Living Eyes™.
    • Freshwater and saltwater colors — Olive, Brown, and Silver.
    • Realistic flat and broad profile.
    • Innovative front-fitting design makes it quick and easy to tie.
    • Designed with a heavily weighted keel to ensure hook up position.
    • Front slot designed for hooks and tube flies.
    • Made in the USA.

    Mini Sculpin Helmet Q&A:

    Q:        How many sizes are there now in the Sculpin Helmet family? 

    A:         There are now 3 sizes; the new Mini, Small and Large sizes.

    Q:        How big is the new Mini size?

    A:         The Mini size is about 25% smaller than the Small size Sculpin Helmet enabling anglers to tie smaller, lighter flies that are easier to cast. For perspective, it is about the same width as standard bead-chain eyes.

    Q:        What hook sizes can be used?

    A:         The Mini is designed with a specially enlarged front slot to fit a much wider range of hook sizes: typically in the #10, #8, #6, #4 or #2 size range.   This increased flexibility in hook sizes allows the Mini to be used in a wide variety of freshwater and saltwater fly patterns.

    Q:        What are some typical FRESHWATER flies that could be tied?

    A:         The Mini will allow you to tie smaller, weighted trout streamers on a #10, #8 or #6 hook.

    Example:  Smaller sculpin or baitfish imitations for use in shallower streams can easily be cast with a #4 or #5 weight fly rod.

    Q:        What are some typical SALTWATER flies that could be tied?

    A:         The size and “always hook upwards” orientation of the Mini offers a viable alternative to using bead chain eyes or small dumbbells for typical shrimp, crab or toad flies that target saltwater “flats” species such as bonefish, permit and redfish.

    Example: The ability to put an oversized hook (#4 or #2) on the relatively small, lightweight Mini is perfect for tying typical bonefish flies like a Gotcha or a Crazy Charlie.

    Q:        What is the new weed guard feature?

    A:         The Mini has a small hole on top of the head that will allow you to add a simple weed guard if you desire.

    Example: A simple weed-guard can be created using 20 lb or 30 lb mason hard type mono-filament or  titanium wire. This option is sometimes an important feature for flats flies being fished in a weedy area.

    Q:        Does the Mini come with Living Eyes?

    A:         Yes, we include a full set of Fish-Skull® Living Eyes with the Mini.

    Q:        What colors does the Mini Sculpin Helmet come in?

    A:         We offer a choice of 3 colors that should cover most freshwater and saltwater applications namely Olive, Brown and Silver.

    Q:        What is the “weighted keel?”

    A:         Sculpin Helmet flies are designed to be fished deep with the hook riding in the “hook upwards” position to avoid getting caught on the bottom. Therefore, the Sculpin Helmet is designed so that 70% of it’s weight and the center-of-gravity is situated below the shank of the hook. This heavily weight “keel” or bottom gives a “dumbell effect” to the fly which means it will always land and swim in the hook up position.

    Q:        Can I use the Mini Sculpin Helmet for tube flies?

    A:         Yes! The front slot has been designed so that both hooks and tube flies can be tied.

    Q:        What do I get in each pack of Mini  Sculpin Helmets?

    A:         There are 8 helmets in each pack. We also include a full set of Fish-Skull® Living Eyes which eliminates the additional cost of buying the 3D eyes separately.

    Q:        Is the tying method for the Mini the same as the other size Sculpin Helmets or Fish-Skulls?

    A:         Yes. The basic method of tying is exactly the same; i.e. tie in all your materials first and then fit the Sculpin Helmet last from the front of the fly.

    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.
