Shipping and Handling Rates and Policies: Shipping within the United States is by The United States Postal Service or UPS (United Parcel Service). Shipping to addresses outside of the United States is by the US Postal Service. We offer flat rates on shipping:

Domestic Orders (within the United States):

USPS "Priority Mail": $6.95. (Estimated Delivery time: 3-4 days). US Mail delivers to post office boxes and many street addresses. If US Mail does not deliver to the address you wish to have your package sent to, please use UPS (see below). We now include tracking services for all domestic packages sent by US Priority Mail.

UPS "Ground": $9.95. UPS Ground delivers quickly from our location to many East Coast USA cities - New England states take 1-2 days, Mid-atlantic 2-3 days, Southern states 4-5 days, Midwest 3-5 days, Rocky Mountains, Southwest, and West coast, 5-6 days. (For specific delivery time via UPS Ground to your address please see: http://www.ups.com/wwtransit/engtimetran.html).
Tracking services are included for all domestic packages sent by UPS. We can supply any other service that UPS offers, including Next Day, 2 Day, and 3 Day Select. If you need overnight delivery, or some other special service, please e-mail us or contact us at 413 274-6143 and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Canada: We prefer to ship to Canada by US Priority Mail International; cost is $24.95. We also make available, but do not recommended US First Class Mail International for $9.95. Estimated delivery time to Canada is 7-20 business/working days for Priority Mail International. We cannot offer any estimate of delivery times for First Class Mail International.

International Deliveries: We prefer to ship all overseas orders by US Priority Mail International; cost is a flat rate of $38.95. Also available is US Express Mail International; cost is a flat rate of $49.95 - this service is advertised by the US Mail Service as the fastest possible method. We also make available, but do not recommended US First Class Mail International for $20.95. Estimated delivery time to most overseas addresses is 10-21 business/working days for Priority Mail International, slightly faster for Express Mail International. We cannot offer any estimate of delivery times for First Class Mail International. Please see www.usps.com for more information on United States International mail services.

Delivery time or time in transit to some specific overseas destinations: According to the US Postal Service, estimated time of delivery for most European countries is 7-14 business days - in our experience, delivery times are usually longer than that. As a practical measure, most of our shipments to the United Kingdom, France, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, etc., take about 2-3 weeks to arrive. A very few packages may arrive sooner, and plenty of others are occasionally delayed for as much as 4-6 weeks - with the current state of customs scrutiny of international mail, we have had a few delays - this situation is beyond our control.

If you are not willing to accept some risk for international shipping, please do not place an order. Thank you for your understanding.

Italy and Mexico are two countries where we have experienced significant delays, and we have had occasional problems with delivery to these countries. Please be advised - we offer no guarantee of delivery to addresses in Italy or Mexico at this time!

We now supply tracking information for international packages shipped by the US Mail! Please note, however, that in our opinion, the tracking services supplied by US Mail offer extremely limited information about the movement of packages.

Tight Lines/Saltwaterflies.com is not responsible for packages once they have been shipped.

All Customs/VAT fees & duties are the sole responsibility of the customer.

PLEASE BE AWARE: We are required by United Sates law to state the value and the contents of all international packages on a customs form attached to the outside of each package. Please do not ask us to misstate the value or contents of your order. If you are not prepared to pay your countries' import duties, please do not place an order. Any discrepancy between the package contents and the description on the customs form on the outside of the package can be a cause for delay by postal or customs authorities.

Delivery by United Parcel Service (UPS) is available to some countries, though the cost is much higher ($75-$125 depending on your location). Tracking services are available when shipping internationally by UPS. We suggest this as an excellent alternative if you have a high-value or time-sensitive order. Contact us if you require international shipping by UPS. More info: www.ups.com.

VERY IMPORTANT: Some countries may restrict the importation of natural fly tying material such as feathers, bucktails, etc... You are responsible for knowing your own countries' restrictions on imports. For a list of restricted or prohibited items for your country, the following webpage is available as a reference: http://pe.usps.gov/text/Imm/immctry.htm
Select your country from the list (countries are listed alphabetically). Tight Lines / Saltwaterflies.com is not responsible for the seizure or destruction by customs or import authorities of any restricted items that you may request on your order, or any delay of your order due to the inclusion of such items. If in doubt, leave it out. Additionally, some of the products that we offer like head cement, or other flammable liquids, are completely prohibited from air shipments. Adhesives like epoxy, etc, can cause problems with spillage during shipment. Please do not request these items if you are ordering from outside the US.

Try the XE.com Personal Currency Assistant to convert US Dollars into Euros, Pounds, Guilders, Francs, Deutchmarks, Canada Dollars, Lira, Pesos, and more! Note: exchange rates vary from day to day - Saltwaterflies.com cannot guarantee rates as we have no control over international exchange rates. This link is provided as a convenience to our customers.

Out of stock items: We do everything in our power to keep a full inventory at all times, but items do occasionally go out of stock. Our website is updated for inventory nearly every day, so our online catalogs are 99.9% accurate as to whether items are in stock (marked with an "Add to Cart" link) or out of stock (marked with a Temporarily out of stock link). We do not hold backorders as a general rule, but we may if it appears as if the particular item was important to your order. If you do or do not want us to backorder items, feel free make a note in the "Special Instructions" box at checkout. A great way to do this is to specify: "Please do not ship without the following item: ----, but alert me by e-mail if this item is not currently available"...this will let us know that a specific item is critical to your order. We do not make substitutions on orders unless specifically requested by the customer.

Return Policy: Your satisfaction is always 100% Guaranteed! Please contact us if you have a problem with your order. We accept returns of any item in original condition within 15 days of receipt. We offer store credit or a full refund on all returned items.
