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.
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.
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!
I got this for my husband and am really impressed with the quality of the flies and all of the other great materials. This is a well thought out package and excellent for the novice as well expert fly fishing enthusiast.
Extremely pleased with the customer service. They responded immediately to my inquiry and were very helpful. Excited to receive their product!
What a joyful package to receive! There are a varied selection of patterns that each come with detailed descriptions and high quality flies that are proven winners. A great gift for anglers new to the sport and those who want to add to their collection. I look forward to seeing what is included each month!
I subscribed to this box as Christmas gifts for my son and brother. As avid fishermen and collectors of lures, they thought the contents were great. They were impressed with the quality and variety of the lures. I will definitely be activating this subscription again as their birthdays approach.
This company has great customer service! Peter has been extremely helpful and accommodating. He has responded promptly to all my questions and emails. Thanks Peter!
This subscription was a birthday gift from my wife - I have thoroughly enjoyed every item and look forward to the packages arrival each month. If you have a fisherman in your life, I highly recommend this product!
Got this subscription for my father in law for his birthday. He is really excited to use them and says they will be great for fishing. Also the customer service was beyond excellent. I have had nothing but a good experience here.
I ordered this subscription for my husband. Let me just say, if you are thinking of the perfect gift for the fly fishing lover in your life... This is it! Each fly is made exceptionally well, with a colored, detailed description of all 12 flies. A tips and tricks sheet was provided, and was a welcome surprise. Also included was a free subscription to Trout Unlimited, a great TROUT sticker, a tapered leader, as well as information on the person who made the flies. Ours happened to be a gentleman named Douglas, who is an Army combat veteran. Thank you for the high quality flies, as well as your service to our country, Douglas. Well done, Freestone Fly Fishing Company! A+++
I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband, he has received two boxes, he is extremely excited and has caught several fish with his flies.
I received the subscription as a Father's Day gift. The flies, accessories and detailed information on each of the flies has been outstanding. I have caught a number of fish already. Customer service has been excellent.
I have been a subscriber of the Bug Box since the company started. I have recived a box every month since then (I have lost count). I am always satisfied with the flies and other products as well. The flies are chosen based on the tiers experience and knowledge of what will fish well when you receive it. These flies can be fished over and over and of course you will see some wear, but they aren’t destroyed after a few hard strikes.
I am so pleased and impressed with this product that I will continue to subscribe even though I have a new baby and will have limited time to go out. I know that I will have a stockpile of awesome flies to use when I can and I will continue to support a small, local, Canadian company.
I look forward to getting my flies every month, and am so excited when I see that blue envelope in the mailbox! The flies are high quality, and the gentleman who own Freestone are great genuine guys! I would highly recommend this for your fly subscription box!
Signed up for my first Bug Box last month (with a sweet entry-level discount!), and it was fantastic. I will definitely be renewing my subscription next month. Good stuff Freestone!
Absolutely nothing better than high quality flies showing up at your door every month! 2 months into my subscription and i am always excited for a new month! Flies are incredible quality and the bonus items make this subscription a steal of a deal! MUST HAVE for any avid fly fisherman!!
I have received two Freestone bug boxes so far and they are awesome! The flies are well made and work great. I also love the bonus item that comes with them as well. I love always having new flies to try out! Great work Freestone :) I would definitely recommend them to all fly fishers out there!
Best subscription box out there! Love seeing it every month! Thank you guys for taking care of me and making sure i have what i need to hit the water!
I wanted to write this review to say how happy I am with the product and service of Freestone fly fishing. I loved the variety and quality of the flies I got every month, and the extra item was always something worthwhile! I'll be telling all my angler friends to pick this up :)
