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.
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 about 20 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. Lee developed the McKenzie Fly Tying light and the McKenzie Bright Light. He has been an engineering consultant that worked with a fly fishing company developing equipment and processes for fly tying materials
Lee got a hold of a bunch of flies from a sporting goods chain trade-out (about 90 pounds of flies) and started garage selling them. He took the challenge to put together a list of ground floor participants to get the goodcheapflies.com site started. With the trade-out flies that he could sell at less than wholesale prices (way less) he targeted folks that would appreciate a good deal and be willing to share this opportunity with others. Because these good people were excited about fishing and wanted their friends to share in their find, the word spread and follow up with these folks is how Good Cheap Flies was started.
If you have a question or a suggestion about the site there is a Feedback button on the left side of the website which will send an email to me and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
