Fly Packaging - Protecting Your Investment

We have all ordered flies online before, only to be dissappinted on their arrival with the crushed box with the retailers catalogue wrapped around the flies. Many flies are wedged together often many damaged before we even get to use them.

At The Essential Fly we considered packaging as crucial to the provision of a quality service to the discerning fly fisherman. We went to many different box suppliers before deciding upon the ideal method of delivering flies.

Internal Packaging

Our flies are packaged either in zip wrap bags for lures and wet flies or on cards for salmon flies or in individual boxes for hackled or dry flies.  Our small boxes are designed to perfectly protect your investment in dry flies or other flies with fine hackles. The lure and wet fly bags protect your wet fly wings and restrict movement to protect the flies further.


Box Within Box Concept

One of our biggest rustrations was receiving works of art through the post which had been ruined in the post. Beautiful Klinkhammers had their hackles damaged in single white boxes enclosed in Jiffy Bags from other suppliers.

At The Essential Fly we decided to be different. Firstly we designed boxes to fit our dry flies, we came up with a boxes within boxes concept, absolutely crucial for dry flies. Our Internal boxes are designed to fit perfectly within our postage boxes. Indeed if you order many dry flies from us you will find no better way of protecting the flies. The internal boxes strengthen further the postage boxes. Testing has shown that you wil lhave great difficulty damaging the internal boxes as the box within box concept provide further re-enforcement for each other.

External Packaging 

We found extremely strong but light corrugated cardboard packaging which we could assemble rapidly that would protect the flies from damage in our postal system. These boxes fit exactly on the current 25mm postage limits for large envelopes. This means that we can send the maximum number of flies and still get them through your letterbox with minimum postage costs.
