Are there any recommendations for an online shop that you know uses USPS, particularly Priority Mail? I typically buy all my gear from Orvis, but they donít ship USPS. Iíve even tried amazon, but some of their vendors wonít ship to APO.

Thanks.

I know this isn't exactly the answer you're looking for, but out of curiosity, have tried calling in or e-mailing your order with special instructions to ship USPS? I think if you included the fact that you need it to get to a military base, they would be glad to accommodate you even if costs a few bucks extra.

With that said, I have had incredible experiences shopping with Trident Fly Fishing out of Maine, I would be willing to bet they will do whatever is needed to accommodate.

I am unable to complete the checkout process due to the address. I even thought about calling the local shop and paying over the phone, but donít want to have to ask the guys to make a special trip to the post office and do a customs form.

Iíll create a basket at trident and see how it goes. Thanks!

Cabela's will ship to an APO. Go to Cabela's home page, drop down to bottom of page in right hand corner and look under Customer Service. Go to FAQ's. Instructions for APO/FPO shipping is on page 14 of Frequently Asked Questions. Also tcoflyfishing.com will ship to APO. Also tightlinesflyshop.com. Also look at Bass Pro under Customer Service/FAQ, on page 6.

Another option is Amazon: look under Shipping and Delivery/ General Shipping.

I know these companies will ship to APO addresses. I would presume most of the major online stores will, but you would have to contact them to find out.

I think saltwaterflies.com will, but they only sell saltwater patterns and supplies.

Awesome, thanks for all of the responses. The big stores like Cabelaís and BP had a few items that were drop ship items that are UPS only. Amazon I had the same issues, Amazon wasnít the one filling the order.

Saltwaterflies is just what Iím looking for. Thanks!

Iíve ordered a good amount of tying supplies from them (Chris) over the last few years and have never been disappointed. I havenít ordered any flies from them that I can remember.
