Default Anyone have experience with the Wholesale Fly Company?

Saw a post on Facebook from a guy saying he bought beads from wholesale fly company for ridiculous prices. I went to their website and sure enough the prices are great. Is it too good to be true or are they a good company?

Anyone dealt with them before?

Hokie.

Interesting. Ran the name through two search engines and the one/only hit was a reference to his face page. Someone working out of house?

Update: Small brainstorm and went at it a different way: http://www.wholesaleflycompany.com/

Appears to be a legit firm that's been around since about 2004.

I'm not sure if this helps but this site claims to review other sites and says it is pretty trustworthy.
is wholesaleflycompany.com a scam or legit | wholesaleflycompany.com trust reviews |check wholesaleflycompany.com for fraud and risk | is wholesaleflycompany.com safe or fake

If they're legit, there's a lot of good stuff there...

They're legit. I've dealt with them a number of times in the past. The beads are low quality, but I don't care one bit. For as quickly as I lose flies I don't need beads that will last forever. I don't remember when I last ordered from them, but I do remember the shipping being very quick.

I tried them on Ted's advice last year. I have their barbell eyes, a few bobbins and other consumables. Everything purchased so far is decent quality, especially considering the prices.

Great website and fast shipping. I've noticed their beadheads tarnish easily but I love their coneheads and dumbbells. I've yet to check out their new tungsten beads yet. Their tools are also nice for the price. They're the only bobbins I use.
