Default Icky Fly Works

Has anyone ordered from Icky Fly Works in a while? I am wanting to purchase some new flies and I have bought from him in the past but I notice his website says gone fishing and it has said this for some time. Thank you!

hopefully he is not another small business causaulity he had great selection and fantastic pricing.

I can't even get to their website and their Facebook hasn't had activity since 2014.
I hope they are sti around as well. I actually forgot about them when I found Trick Flies out of Edmonton.

Be Picky - go to Icky. I received their shipment of over 30 flies and was bowled over by the high caliber workmanship. It was as though they could envision the streams and rivers I will be wading through in a few months. Customer service is so good it sets the bar very high indeed.
Thank you Icky!

It appears he has changed his URL from.CA to.COM.

Most likely out of business. About the only thing you can do is email sales@ickyflyworks.ca and see if you get a response.

Tricfklies.ca has a Black Friday Sale starting tomorrow. I would imagine the pricing will be very good and the flies are always top quality.

Just placed a pretty large order with IckyFlyWorks on Friday and now the site is down. Card has been charged too, should I be worried?

I already know how slippery that slope is from reloading... can't take the dive just yet haha

Side note, received both winter packs a couple days ago. Beautiful little nymphs! Thanks Icky.
