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.

Check out these stunning emergers/dry flies tied with the Whiting exclusive Cinnamon Hen Cape!! Nige of Lakeland as started tying again for the first time in 2-3 years and the flies still look good, they even stand up to Darryl Mooney’s Macro Lens!!! The idea behind this pattern is that the Cinnamon Hen Hackle will allow the fly to sit in the surface film with the body sitting in the surface just were trout expect to see food!!! With the number of cattle around our Cumbrian waters this is the perfect dung fly pattern or cinnamon buzzer emerger!! Fishing flies should be easy and quick to tie and durable when catching trout!!! These patterns are so easy to tie, the Hook any of the Partridge Dry Fly Hooks are very good Nige used the Partridge Supreme Dry Fly Hook on this Emerger Pattern. Tying thread is the Lagartun Extra Strong 50 denier simply because it’s the best for this type of pattern, pure white and VERY,VERY Strong but be warned when you first use the spool take extreme care when taking the thread from the bobbin and make sure you put every fibre into your bobbin holder!!!! When wet this thread will go clear and this shows of the translucency of the Wapsi Stretch Round Rib. Hot spots can be added to the thread with a permanent red marker, trout seem to love them. The wing is the Lakeland Duck CDC in Natural Brown, this is the best CDC we have seen that’s why we buy it in bulk and go through the time consuming process of packing it!! On thing for sure the packets are bigger  and the quality is better than the rubbish CDC  that we see our competitors selling!!! That stunning cinnamon hackle comes from the Whiting Exclusive Hen Cape Range, the idea of the hen cape is that it will allow the fly to sit low with the fibres moving naturally in the surface film as it drifts around !!!Get tying and go fishing!!!!!!!!!!
