This is the Team of Aluco Lures,
your Specialists in Bluewater, Inshore and Destination Flies
We are dedicated to providing you with the most effective flies and lures which have been rigorously tested over a number of years by both ourselves and some of the top names in the game. From our clifftop studio overlooking the rich Madeira Blue Marlin fishery, our high-quality, durable and effective flies are meticulously hand-crafted by tournament-winning angler Andy Scott using only the very best hooks and finest materials he and the Team of Aluco Lures can source.
Whether chasing the mighty Blue Marlin and Sailfish offshore, the humble Bonefish, Permit and Triggerfish in skinny-water flats, Peacock Bass in the Amazon or casting a fly towards Giant Trevally, Tarpon, Tuna, Mahi, Cobia, Stripers, Bluefish etc., Aluco Lures has flies and lures which will ensure a better chance of catching that fish of a lifetime. Andy has almost four decades of destination fly-fishing experience and, combined with our clients and product testers, we have accounted for over 60 species in 26 countries and as many islands, including the Eastern Atlantic islands of Madeira, Cape Verdes, Azores, Canaries along with Cuba, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Margarita and many other Caribbean islands.
We are also very excited at some of the recent catches being reported from the Pacific islands, from double-digit bonefish and 50kg+ Yellowfin to 100kg+ Blue Marlin!
Anglers as far afield as the Kola peninsula, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Iceland, Canada, United States,Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mongolia, Thailand, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia wet our flies, with some tremendous catches!
Throughout the shop, you will find a selection of our most popular flies and lures for sale. These listings are by no means comprehensive and, if you can't find what you're looking for please contact our Team and we'll do our best to help you out. Also, check back from time to time as we are adding to the site regularly. With the rising popularity of Salty fly-fishing in the UK and Northern Europe too, we also cater for salmon, sea trout, European bass, pollack, coalfish, mackerel, etc. both from shore and boat.
We also provide a bespoke fly-tying service too, and can copy flies from good-quality photos, or tie them to your own specifics. This means you'll never run out of your favourite flies again!
(Minimum quantity applies. 50% deposit required on all bespoke orders.)
We aim to ensure our clients receive the best possible service, providing them with the highest quality flies in preparation for that trip of a lifetime! One thing I have learned over these past three decades destination fishing is that there is rarely a tackle shop close by. Often the nearest fly shop will be tens, even hundreds of miles from where you will be fishing. Even if there is a tackle shop on-site, their flies can be more than 5-6 times the cost of flies bought before your trip.
In some guided locations, the guides will use pliers to remove your fly from the fish. Even the best-tied flies suffer damage this way, meaning you'll have to buy expensive flies from the site shop. Take a few extra flies with you, and use the money saved for a celebratory beer or three after a hard days fishing instead! You'll have earned it!
Unsure of which flies to take with you? Have a look at our boxed selections, which will provide you with several deadly patterns for each species you will encounter on your travels. We can even add extra flies based on your wishes.

Although we generally have a swift turnaround, please don't leave ordering from us to the last minute. We can and will do our best to provide flies at very short notice but the more notice we have, the better it is for all involved.
We try to keep postage costs to a minimum for our clients. Orders under 100 euros, postage is 5,00 euros. I offer free worldwide tracked shipping on all orders over 100 Euros.
If any further information is required, please do not hesitate to contact us.
