    I can confirm what Mario is saying. There are NO prices on the stock in the shop, so they can pretty much take you for a ride if they want to, and I'm quite sure they do. Stealth breathable waders (not zipped front) selling for R1000. StreamX are selling them at R999. Not sure if I'm comparing apples with apples, but the ones they had there were definitely not R2000 standard retail.

    I got half wells grips for R12.50 each though, which I thought was a bargain.

    Pretty sure I saw one, not sure what the specs were though. Think it was on the heavier side. Just make sure you know what the actual price is before committing to anything.

    Blue tennis grips are a no no.

    R950.00 was retail less 50%?
    Why are they closing down?
    Because they sell retail less 50%

    National consumer act states all prices need to be visible. Thus, they are not doing things the correct way.. Sounds dodge to me... My 5cents
    Fly fishing, fly tying & rod building.....

    Why isn't your 5 cents 2.5 cents?

Might just have been taken for a nice long ride, but let this serve as a warning to some perhaps.

    Their website shows this: http://www.flyshops.co.za/shop/index...productId=1277 (R1180) so means sale price should have been R590.

    Deluxe RUBBER boot selling for R1160 FULL RETAIL somewhere else ...

    OUCH!
    Pretty sure you have some legal recourse here.
    The Consumer Protection Act should give you a leg to stand. Phone them and tell them to give your money back

    See, the thing is ... the 50% off on all was posted here, buy someone not officially linked to the Fly Shop ...

    Eeek, didn't the page where you checked out your order show a discount?

    I had someone pick up a pair of boots for me ... don't think they are doing web orders at all.
