A few thoughts ...

It has long been apparent that the vast majority of fly tying materials available are of an inferior quality -
which does not suit the needs of the discerning fly dresser. The majority of our materials are sourced, sorted, selected and packaged by us giving 100% quality control.

The Cookshill Guarantee -our aim is to provide a range of mainly natural materials of the highest quality and at a price that is sensible. We appreciate that the needs of each fly dresser are very individual and your idea of a correct feather size or colour may vary from ours.

Cookshill is not about fancy brochures and advertising we simply supply the finest quality natural materials.
