We are not just another fly supplier or cheap online store. We work with and train individuals that have been or at risk of being trafficked, live in poverty, or have been orphaned or widowed. We believe that by providing trade instead of aid we make a lasting difference that also gives dignity instead of dependance.
We train tyers from scratch to commercial grade with top notch instruction like using nots and glue throughout the fly to make sure your flies catch more fish. Each year we take on at least one new group and help to raise funds that bring jobs into areas that need living wage income. So far we have worked in Kenya, and Nepal and already have visions for the future in both those locations as well as additional SE Asian Countries like Myanmar, Bangladesh, S Korea, Cambodia, and more.
We work with stakeholder groups that help to fund startup and training costs as well as maintain ongoing relationships with the tying groups by traveling to visit at least once a year and regularly communicating to offer business expertise and friendship.
We regularly meet with the tying groups in person and online the leaders and tyers of each group. We work through challenges, provide encouragement, and develop strategies together that benefit tyers with many areas of life. We partner with consulting groups that also help in the areas of personal finances, community development, and counseling for post traumatic stress.Read More
Fair Flies sells direct to the public but we would actually prefer you buy flies from your local dealer. We will sell to you at full suggested retail here but you might find them cheaper at your local fly shop and we think that's good. You can also try our sample boxes and assortments where you get a few different flies in a dozen pack. If your shop does not carry our flies yet, tell them to reach out to us and we would love to set them up with an account. Then you can buy them however you want with a good local selection.
