    Lame. I order on 27 March, I get a two confirmations via e-mail, and I get shorted SEVEN DOZEN flies on my order with the comment "OUT" hand written on the order form when the partial order shows up.

    So much for the comment that states: "This sale will last until the end of the work day on april 1st. Once a pattern is sold out we will remove the size or the pattern from the monthly specials."

    I tried to get some stuff off the 'spring cleaning' link but there were no hotlinks - couldn't put it into an order. All I could find were the 'sale items' which were a lot different than the original link. Bummer. I would have bought a bunch of stuff.

    I got 2 dozen but "out" on the other two. Still $6 shipping and half the flies. Oh well. Would have been nice to know they were out.

    I put in a huge order and got a small box today. I'm HAPPY that the nine dozen I got will keep me from having to tie those nine dozen. I'm saddened because now my dry boxes will be only a fraction of how full I thought they were before I got the OUT message on so many of my line items. I guess I'll have to schedule some tying time.

    Yeah, the flies I most wanted were all out.

    I still got 5 or 6 dozen at about $1.50 per doz, so no complaints.

    Due to the over whelming amount of order placed on the 26th, Hill's inventory tracker shut down and failed to remove sold out items. I am truly sorry to anyone who did not get there complete order. Right now we are working on fixing the problem and will notify those who's order were missing the most flies with replacement flies.
    Truly Sorry

    Rats, I ordered about $50 worth, and just found out I won't get ANY. You guys who received part of your order should consider yourselves lucky!

    Brandon,

    Thanks for the reply to my ordering question...When I went back to start my order, I had missed the boat on a few of my choices, but I placed an order anyway; Sale & non-Sale flies.

    I haven't received my order yet, but just wanted to say Thanks for putting an incredible fly deal out there. Not being a tyer myself, any flies I can get at a good price are worth the effort.
    Thanks for stepping up to try to make things right!!! :thumb:

    Hopefully everyone who ordered got a great deal on what they received.

    The Interwebs. They're not perfect.

    I too only recieved 4 of 13 items ordered, but just wanted to put a good word in for Brandon and the others at Hill's. Another large order that I put in with them in the last couple of years had some inventory/stock problems, but these guys really jumped through some hoops to get it corrected so that I got the bugs I needed before a big trip. Aside from their order/inventory system, the attitude and customer service has been top-notch and I was really impressed.

    Brandon - thanks for offering a great deal for what I got.
