Ian’s Flies – Fly Manufacturers & Online Sales

The origins of Ian’s Flies, named after its founder Ian Sharp, dates back to June 2008 when Ian and John Sharp started manufacturing and selling fishing flies in bulk to shops and fisheries. 

Tired of constantly listening to anglers complaining about the quality and price of the flies they were buying on the open market, in 2009 Ian and John decided that it was time for them to start their own small on-line store to supply, at least initially, 200 or so of the most popular flies.  Based on the superior quality of their goods and services the store 'took off'.  Before they knew it Ian's Flies soon had more than 3000 fly patterns in stock .... the rest as they say is history.

Today Ian’s Flies, now owned managed by Tracey and Dale Robertson following Ian’s retirement, are one of Scotland’s leading Independent Fly Manufacturers with over 4000 patterns; many available in multiple sizes in Barbed and Barbless. With an ever expanding customer base, in excess of 14,000 and growing weekly, we sell to clients across the UK, Rep of Ireland, Europe, Scandinavia, Iceland, USA, Canada, Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand and Japan.

Our flies are tied using the best quality hooks and materials sourced by ourselves from top companies, such as Flybox, Veniard, FNF, Semperfli, Bill McIlroy, Partridge, Kamasan and Hanak etc.

We are always looking to grow and expand the business and in 2018 we have added Arthur Wilkie Flies, Airflo Lines, Fluorocarbon, Accessories and a range of Fly Tying Materials to our catalogue with plans to add more going forward.

The Ian's Flies Team are constantly looking to expand the variety on offer so if YOU have any ideas regarding fly patterns or stock requests please e-mail us at [email protected]

We look forward to being of service to you in the future. 

We are simply the best!
