Frequently Asked Questions - Shipping and Online Orders

How does Fish Tales decide on the flat rate for shipping?

  • Fish Tales flat rates are calculated to be a fair average of the actual postage costs for shipping to a region. 
Why isn't shipping always free?

  • Oversized items such as spey rods, nets, and luggage are not eligible for free shipping, nor are items shipped to the USA.
