Author Topic: where do you shop online?

Its hard to get the stuff needed for fly fishing/tying where i live..theres 2 stores on the north island and they just have very basic cheap stuff....I've been getting my lines-polyleaders from Nile Creek...and my cones/beads and such from The Canadian Llama...2 great B.C companies...so where do you all get your materials online? I like to keep my online purchases in Canada....just curious where you all shop..think i need to put in a big order soon !

You may not like my answer, but here you go: I have a US credit card w/ US billing address and shipping address in Blaine, WA. I do most of my fishing related shopping locally; however, for bigger, more expensive stuff I go to:

llbean.com
basspro.com
amazon.com

I don't fly fish, so for my most of my gear I buy locally. In those cases, it's not worth the hassle to save a few bucks and the two local tackle shops I buy from are really nice. For your situation, you might want to try the first two links above. I believe they ship to CAN and have a good selection. Good luck.

A lot of fly shops will sell/ship for you if you get in touch with them. Google and research specific products, then get in touch with a shop and get them to mail it to you.

Searun Fly and Tackle, Pacific Angler, Michael and Young, etc would be more than happy and willing to help.

I appreciate your efforts in trying to keep sales local and within Canada!

I also have an address in Blaine Washington. I can buy stuff cheaper from the USA than Canada. I am in the process of building a boom car stereo. I am doing it for just under 1000 US. Up here, jeez I don't even want to guess. For comparison sake

Same amplifier. Price in Canada 399.99 & 12% tax. price in USA 189.99 I asked Best buy to price match and they said NO. I then emailed them a copy of the receipt and said so how many more stores do you plan to close. I mean twice the cost if sold here. NUTS. i see it as corporate greed. I also told them I would be buying subs, speakers and head unit in the USA. do I feel guilty. NO. My complaint is the stuff is twice the price that it should be. It all came from China not the USA.
