We hope this email finds you, your family and friends well. We would like to start by thanking you so much for your continued support, it really does bring a smile to our faces when we receive feedback from you. I've no doubt that both we and the entire fly fishing community will face many challenges over the coming weeks and months.
It seems we are pretty fortunate in that our business is 100% online, and subject to any movement restrictions or government guidance, we will still be accepting orders (even though fly fishing is probably the last thing on anyone's mind right now) - please be aware that deliveries may take longer at this time.
For anyone who is self-isolating, we are really proud to support our friends Oscar & Nell over at Bear Fly Fishing with their Bear Share initiative. If you've not already heard about it, here's the low down:
Bear Fly Fishing are offering you a way to stay connected and part of the wider angling community whilst potentially being isolated or practising social distancing. They will connect you with another angler to form a penpal like relationship. They will try and connect you with someone in your area so you can fish together once this mayhem is over. You can exchange tips and tricks, teach each other different fly patterns, share exciting places to fish or provide a friendly ear for others' worries. It could also be a great way for people looking to learn to fish to connect with someone willing to teach them, even if it is virtually.
Bear Share is a way to come together to support each other in this time of uncertainty. Allowing us to bring some fishing into our lives even at home and continuing to learn from one another. If Bear Share isn’t for you then please share it with someone who it might benefit, we would love to connect older anglers who can’t get outside right now with a younger angler that they can impart their wisdom to. So if you know anyone then please forward this and let them know.
