Q: We live in New England. My brother fishes for either trout and/or bass. Which would be the best subscription to get him? I believe he uses a standard fishing pole. Asked by Traci B., December 2020
Hi there Traci,
Thanks for reaching out! I'd definitely recommend the Warmwater Bass option for your brother. He can always switch over to our Freshwater Trout option if he wants to change it up down the road. Do you know if he uses a fly rod at all? Our box caters to anglers that fly fish vs. fishing with lures/bait. If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask. Warm regards, and Happy Holidays!
Q: I love the idea of this the only problem is which one to pick?! Could I subscribe and request the boxes be rotated between freshwater trout and steelhead/salmon? Asked by Jessica S., February 2021
Absolutely! Choose whichever option you'd like for your first month, then just shoot us an email indicating which options you'd like to go with for each subsequent month and we'll make it happen. Feel free to send us a message with any more questions, we're here to help!
Q: My dad is a snow bird! He lives in Ohio during the warm months and in Palmetto Florida during the cold months! He has taken an interest in fly fishing the past few years. Which box do you recommend? Asked by Jenny W., December 2020
I would recommend either the Warmwater Bass or Freshwater Trout options (the latter being our most popular). Both options come with a number of versatile patterns so you won't go wrong with either one. Also, if your Father ever wanted to switch options during his subscription, a short email to us is all it takes!
Let me know if you have any more questions or inquiries and I'd be happy to answer them
Q: What would subscription would you suggest for my grandson who is fishing ponds and lake (shore) fishing in AlabamaAsked by Terri B., December 2020
Hi there Terri,
That's a great question! Based on your grandson's fishing preferences, I'm going to recommend the Warmwater Bass option. He'll get a nice variety of patterns that will be applicable to numerous species in the ponds and lakes of his area. Of course you can tell him that he can switch his monthly box to a new option whenever he pleases, and only requires a quick email to us with the request.
I hope that answers your question. Please let us know if you any more
I got this subscription for my husband and have renewed it several times. He loves getting his package every month. We also just got a 6 month subscription for our son who we are sure will love it just as much as his dad. Thank you for a unique gift with great quality products. If you are considering this, just do it!! You won't be disappointed!
Gift for the husband, been getting for a year and its been awesome
I purchased this box to try it out and it's great! I got a bunch of new flies with tips on how and when to use them. I also got some new leader loops, which are a nice addition. Definitely recommend this box.
I recently ordered the Flyfishing box for my Father's Birthday - and he loved it! From the packaging to the sweet stuff inside he was over the moon and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for something new and exciting for the fly fisher in their life! I had a great experience too with customer service and Peter went out of his way to help.
I purchased a 6 month subscription for my husband for Christmas as something different that he can enjoy for a little longer than just Christmas Day! I know nothing about fly fishing, he really enjoyed receiving his box in the mail every month! We recently moved, so I reached out to Peter to change the shipping address and he got it switched over for us right away. It’s been a great experience with FreeStone!
My experience with Freestone has been amazing. I subscribed to this box for my Fiance for his Christmas gift and he loved receiving it every month. He said that the quality of the flies were great and that he used everything that came in the box each month.
I didn't receive one months box so I reached out to Peter and he happily sent out another box. I highly recommend FreeStone to anyone. What a unique and fun gift!
Hi there Haley,
I'm very sorry the surprise for your gift recipient was ruined, that's the worst. To keep our shipping costs economical, and ultimately offer free shipping across North America, we use a soft envelope vs. a rigid box. I apologize for any disappointment this has caused, but I assure you our flies are top quality, and we do our best to go above and beyond to offer useful bonus items and awesome stickers!
I'd like to offer you a free shipment on top of your prepaid subscription, I hope this helps remedy the situation. Please send us a message and we'll get it set up for you.
All the best,
Edit: I made a mistake while ordering (pregnancy brain) and reached out to the company to see if there was anything we could do to change his subscription. They not only fixed it, but sent him one with the right products in it! Huge thank you to Freestone!!!!! I was beyond impressed!!!!!!!
My husband loved this month's ties! He's been fly-fishing for over ten years, and typically makes his own. We've been looking into the company to become a regular customer outside of this little subscription I got him.
Picked up a gift subscription for hubby, let me just say Peter is awesome to deal with and incredibly prompt with requests/service. I had a peak at what was inside, husband is going to love it! Merry Christmas Peter!
Just received my first shipment, very pleased with the fly selection and the extra goodies are awesome. I'll definitely keep my subscription going, thank you Freestone!
I stumbled upon Freestone whilst looking for a present for my Dad, a fly-fishing aficionado of the most extreme sort. Like many kids of flyfishermen who have everything (in triplicate), I had terrible luck finding presents he would appreciate that I could afford... Well, he's absolutely in love with the diversity and quality of the flies from Freestone and calls me every month when he gets a delivery, happy as a kid! Not to mention the fact that his buddies are envious like kids as well... Great concept, great execution and excellent customer service!
With our July Box we're sending anglers a killer variety of flies and essentials to get their summer fishing season off to the best possible start!

Along with flies, each box will feature products from CHUMS, Phil Rowley, and a few of our very own gear items and stickers!
As we transition into the Fall fishing season and fish start firing up their biological need to feed, we're loading up subscribers with the perfect assortment of late-season bugs. Included in this month are a variety of fish-foolin' midges and nymphs, and a few dries for those late summer nights. Also featured in this months box are two of Loon Outdoors most popular products, along with some essential goodies and our infamous Brook Trout sticker!
If you're anything like us, end of the angling season means a lot of holes in your fly box. That's why we're loading up the November box with tried and true, essential fly patterns. These are the patterns that you just gotta have in your arsenal, the ones you just don't leave home without! Also included in each box is our brand new "River Dweller" vinyl sticker, bottle caddy, velcro fly patch, and more angling essentials to keep you stocked up and ready for the water!
The time has come to release our 2020 Fishmas Box! This year we'll be surprising members with a few bonus "Fishmas" flies and some good old-fashioned holiday cheer (I think we could all do with some right now). Along with our awesome Fishmas fly lineup, we'll be loading up our boxes with an essential set of streamside tools and gear. We're sending off 2020 with one of our most value-packed boxes to date! Merry Fishmas from the Freestone Team!
