The Fly Buyer's Club Lives!

For those of you who have been following along for a while, you may remember the old fly buyer's club. It was an idea I had to help my website visitors save a few bucks by adding their fly orders to mine when I placed by big orders from overseas. Well, without going into a great deal of exposition, I decided it was time to close the club down a couple years ago. Suffice it to say that the supply chain fell apart on us. It became clear that what we needed was a licensed U.S. importer/distributor willing to cut us a deal. Guess what?

Long story short, the Fly Buyer's Club is back in business. Our licensed U.S. distributor is Greg Konar, the owner of East Branch Flies. If we the club members can put together orders of 100 dozen flies or more, he'll offer us his absolute rock bottom price -- the same wholesale price he'd offer to a fly shop. For example, most "normal" trout flies will run you $5.50 per dozen as a member of the Fly Buyer's Club (about 46 cents each).

As you can imagine, Greg's not earning much of anything on this deal, so the question you might ask yourself is "what's it in for Greg?" Well, the Fly Buyer's Club is not for folks that just want to buy a few flies here and there. The typical club members will generally have their boxes filled as well as having extra flies at home, already queued up for the next trip or two. But, we all find ourselves in a bind sometimes and need a quick batch on short-term notice. If you find yourself in that situation, be sure to visit East Branch Flies and give them your retail business as well.

The Fly Buyer's Club will probably place 3 or 4 large orders a year, and our first order will be going in very soon. So, if you're interested in joining up, here's what you do:

(1) Send us an email by clicking HERE asking to join the Fly Buyer's Club.

(2) Wait for further instructions!

How easy is that? Join the club, an you'll never again feel like you have to risk your life trying to retrieve a snagged fly!
