Thanks Craig,

Excellent flies and excellent service.

Hi Craig,

Thanks very much for the prompt delivery of my order. Also thanks for the free fritz, your fritz is the best out there.

Thanks again

"Hi Craig, just thought id drop you an email regarding the great day I had on Rutland using your buzzers. On 25.04.2010 using a midge tip and long leader i caught 15 Quality Rainbows including a superb overwinterd 6lb fish. I used your buzzers all day which were the crisp packet, red butt UV and the red spot buzzer. Brilliant flies, highly recommended, cheers "

"I have fished with most of Craig’s flies and can vouch for their quality and effectiveness – why bother tying your own when you can buy Buzzers and Blobs as good as these?"

"I would like to offer some comment on Craig Barr Flies. Over the years the only difference between many competition anglers is the materials and appearance of the flies used. Craig Barr’s 'Flash Attack Flies' combinations in Blobs, Lures and Nymph patterns are by far the best flies I have used. They are a must for competition anglers".

Craig Barr’s ‘Black & Yellow Shaggle Fritz Booby’
“The flies are quite simply devastatingly effective in cold water and produce results while ‘more familiar patterns’ failed to catch”.




Great flies, would recommend anyone to buy from Craig Barr

This is just to let you know that I have had great success with your Blobs in saltwater as well as the lakes I usually fish. On a recent trip to Majorca I took fly fishing gear and flies. I caught some good thick lip mullet using Orange Blob Goldheads and Deep Sunburst Blobs. I know this is unusual but the Blobs really do work! Once again thanks for such great flies.

Regards, Stuart Way, Cheshire



I've been out of competitive fishing for several years now and have decided to get back on the scene. Not having the time to tie anymore, I needed a supplier who could bring me up-to-date with the latest patterns and materials to give me a fighting chance. Craig Barr's flies did just that!
1st comp.....1st place, beating several Internationals!
You will not find a better, well tied selection anywhere else.

i recently ordered blobs from yourselves on a Sunday night and had them first thing Tuesday morning, excellent service, i also had a problem with colours and contacted Craig direct by e-mail to which he replied too right away and sorted me out and that is what i call personal service. Many thanks
