Maximizing Your Fly Fishing Success: Why You Should Buy Flies in Bulk | Jackson Hole Fly Company

When it comes to fly fishing, every angler knows the importance of having the right fly at the right time. The diversity of flies allows us to mimic the vast variety of insects and baitfish that fish prey upon, making the selection and use of flies crucial for success. While it may seem convenient to pick up a few flies as needed, there are compelling reasons to consider buying them in bulk. Let’s explore why bulk purchasing can be a game-changer for your fly fishing adventures.


The most immediate and significant advantage of buying flies in bulk is the substantial cost savings. At Jackson Hole Fly Company, we are committed to offering top-of-the-line, hand-tied flies that don't compromise on quality or affordability. Choosing to buy in bulk from us guarantees unparalleled quality at a more cost-effective price. We provide a 15% discount for bulk purchases of 4 or 5 flies of the same size and pattern, and an even more generous 25% discount for orders of 6 or more of the same size and pattern. This pricing strategy significantly reduces the cost per fly, making it an economically wise choice for avid fishermen or those who frequently face the loss or wear and tear of their flies. Over time, the savings from buying in bulk can add up, freeing up your budget for other vital gear or fishing trips.

Ensuring Consistency

When you find a fly that works exceptionally well in a specific environment or for a particular species, consistency becomes key. Buying in bulk ensures that you have a consistent supply of these proven performers. At Jackson Hole Fly Company, we prioritize quality and innovation in our fly designs. However, it's important to note that patterns may be discontinued or undergo changes over time. Securing a bulk purchase of a fly that works ensures that you have a steady supply of that specific design and quality, avoiding the frustration of not being able to find it again.

Preparedness and Variety

Fly fishing is often a game of adaptation. Conditions change, hatches vary, and fish can be picky. Having a well-stocked arsenal of flies at your disposal means you’re better equipped to adapt to these changes on the fly (pun intended). Purchasing flies in bulk builds a diverse collection, ensuring you always have the perfect fly for any situation and preventing shortages if you lose one. This variety not only makes you a more versatile angler but also increases your chances of success across different waters and seasons.

Time Savings and Convenience

Time spent searching for or buying flies individually is time not spent on the water. Bulk purchasing means you’ll have to shop less often, saving you time and hassle. This convenience allows for more spontaneous trips, as you’re less likely to be caught without the right supplies. Moreover, having a bulk stash at home gives you the opportunity to sort and organize your collection, making it easier to find what you need when you’re preparing for a trip.

Sharing and Community

Buying flies in bulk often means you’ll have more than you need for a season or two, which presents a fantastic opportunity to share with fishing buddies or introduce newcomers to the sport. Sharing flies can help strengthen bonds within the fishing community, offer newbies a better start without the initial investment, and even encourage the exchange of fishing tips and spots. It’s a way to give back and foster the camaraderie that fly fishing is known for.

Environmental Considerations

On a broader scale, bulk purchasing can also have environmental benefits. Reduced packaging and shipping for bulk orders mean a smaller carbon footprint compared to multiple smaller purchases. For those conscious about their environmental impact, this is a compelling reason to buy in bulk.

Final Thoughts

While the upfront cost of buying flies in bulk might seem high, the long-term benefits — from cost savings and ensuring consistency to fostering a sense of community — are invaluable. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or new to the sport, consider bulk purchasing your flies. It’s an investment that pays dividends in savings, success, and satisfaction on the water. Remember, in fly fishing, being well-prepared with the right fly can make all the difference. Happy fishing!
