Very nice for me as a beginner.
While I love Freestone and want to continue to support them, the baggie the flies come in have caused my last order to be utterly smashed and ruined. Not all of them, but the deer hair streamers and the dry flies are mangled and don't fish like they should. My parachute Adams looks like the chute didn't open after jumping out of the plane.
I have had other fly fishing subscriptions in the past but none have compared to the quality of product and service that I have seen with Freestone. I am absolutely in love with these flies! The flies are extremely well built and uphold on the windiest of days and biggest of fish. The customer service is outstanding as well. Even amid some delivery delays the team has always gone above and beyond to make it the best experience! Give these guys a chance! You won’t regret it!
It’s a great deal for the price. I actually ordered 2 different subscriptions from different companies just to compare which one to actually go with thru my new fly fishing journey. I liked Freestone for they gave me more actual fishing supplies and at a good price. One thing I found very handy (for being a rookie in the sport) was the other company gave tips and tricks on how to rig each fly. That was the deal breaker for me.
I am brand new to fly fishing this season. I have been conventional fishing for years and decided to try fly fishing. I chose Freestone as the company to supply me with flies and gear and have never been disappointed. I have learned so much from using their products. I even caught my first trout on a sinker I got from them. They are always around to answer any and all questions. Give this company a chance. You will not be disappointed
