    Default Snips / Nippers

    Im currently making up 8 bags of trout fly tackle and looking for a couple of things so any suggestions most welcome.
    Looking for 8 pairs of snips / nippers to put in the bags and also some Stillwater flies
    lures or dries to make up 8 boxes.
    These will be used this year when I kick off my next round of fishing courses for youngsters which are funded by Perth and District Anglers so at no cost for the newcomers.
    Any assistance would be most appreciated.

    If you're making up multiple sets of stuff and not in a desperate hurry you'll save a bit of cash by bulk purchasing in China on things like snips. I bought a few pairs - I'm always losing them (or loaning them - same thing) for a couple of quid each - same ones you get here for sick squid Zingers are the same.

    I run schools fly fishing courses here in Hereford. We were given a load of Stillwater flies last year, if you PM me your address I will put a handful in the post assuming I can find them after the Christmas tidy up !

    Loads on ebay really cheap if you are willing to wait a couple of weeks. Not sure how much of a delay chinese new year will cause to delivery time though.

    Default Lanyards

    Will have a look and see what I can muster. I am also looking for cheap lanyards to attach them too so any ideas would be helpful.
