About Good Cheap Flies

Good Cheap Flies was started to provide fly fishers with a way to get good quality flies at a great price. You can buy flies in lots of 3, 6, 9, or by the dozen with discounts as you buy more of each fly pattern and size—never go fishing with only one of each fly! Hopefully you will enjoy the pricing and quality enough that you will want to tell your friends and fellow fishers about it.

The owner, Lee Collett, is a retired civil engineer whose father taught him to fly fish at a single digit age. That love of fishing and a good friend got him into the fly-fishing business over 25 years ago. He has managed a fly shop, traveled as a host with clients to fish both ends of the earth, and has been an innovator in developing fly fishing related items and as an engineering consultant developing equipment and processes for fly tying.

Lee got about 90 pounds of flies from a sporting goods chain trade-out and started garage selling them. With the trade-out flies that he could sell at less than wholesale prices (way less) he found folks that appreciated a good deal and was willing to share this opportunity with others. The word spread and follow up with these folks is how Good Cheap Flies was started.
