🇬🇧 Brexit & Latest news 🇬🇧
UPDATE 6 - 14/05/2021
After a first successful drop in April, we're back for the final spring drop.
See you tonight boys!
UPDATE 5 - 25/04/2021
I am so glad to say, we are back on track, doing the Forgotten Flavours thing.
What I am even more excited about, is the new brand we set up here in Belgium. From scratch, our ideas to work out 'On Point' were to take the same approach as with Forgotten Flavours, being unique, in it's own way and right.
Although I do understand there is a over saturated market, I think we can still find our way into this just like we did with FF, with quality over quantity, and especially, with labor of love, all being done over here in Belgium.
Our goal is not to compete with the big dogs, but instead, get into the tackle boxes of high profile anglers who prefer the rather small, distinctive approach to carp fishing. No fancy colors, just the basics and quality of quantity, again, just like with FF.
In the mad world we currently -and unfortunately!- still live in, our customer base being at least 80% UK, aqcuiring this all throughout the hiccups, Covid and rough circumstances all around the world, we are sooo proud to finally announce we can launch the first of May!
Sharpening hooks and high quality terminal tackle has been pretty much a standard in my tackle box, fishing extremely tight swims on snaggy pits or rough canals over here in Belgium.
The extra trigger to start 'On Point' really came when my better half insisted we should do it and we made the dream into a reality.
I am no stranger to sharpening hooks myself, and when I saw the extreme new rules coming into play from the 1st of January, I knew, basically unknown, but with a gut-feeling predicting the future a bit, Belgium and Europe needed an extra high end tackle brand. Our tackle shops are getting emptier by the day!
So, without further a do, On Point is launching 1.05.2021 | 6.30pm EU | 5.30pm UK.
This same evening, we will also drop Redesmere Specials, Mulberry and re-stocking all foodbait corkballs.
These are dropping 1.05.2021 | 7pm EU | 6pm UK.
Note: Redes & Mulbs will get 2 drops in May, because we can't process all orders in one week otherwise. 2nd drop will be 14th of May.
See you at the drop ;-)
UPDATE 4 - 5/03/2021
Nearly all parcels got delivered within a week (for those abroad). Local deliveries within 24hrs of purchase (if ordered on working days), so I am glad we are back. Thank you for your continuous support. I am hungry for 2021, there's a fire lit in my belly and I can't wait to show you guys!
About 90% of parcels to the UK have been delivered within 2 weeks of purchase. So I suppose we're back on track!
Keep in mind that parcels with a value of about +- €150 will get stung with custom duties and import tax, which calculates to quite a considerable amount. Unfortunately this is out of my control and I can't take any responsibility for this, although I will always try my absolute best to make sure this doesn't happen... :-)
First parcels to the UK have been delivered, others are still on their way somewhere between Holland and the UK.
Covid, Brexit, and the weather aren't in favour of our couriers.
You can follow your parcel with your tracking number sent to your email address on the ParcelForce website as well:
As soon as it lands in the UK you'll be able to follow it from there. 🙂👍🏻
We are currently back on track with all orders worldwide.
If you are in the UK, the situation is still quite unstable for now but I am positive this will change in the near future.
Hi Forgotten Flavours fanatics and all fans around the globe,
First of all, thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being friendly, being a constant support. You guys were there and were ready to talk about anything carp or non-carp related. <3
Second of all, I am writing this part of the page with mixed feelings.
Together, we have grown so much as a brand, as a icon, a symbol. Without any single one of you I couldn't have done what I did and I wouldn't be standing where I'm standing now. That's just the truth.
Covid played quite a big role in all of our lives last year, but together, once again, we made it through. We finished the year on a high being the Hutchie collab. We did it! 2020 was finished and that would be that.
Until... There was very complicated rules regarding in and export from the EU to the UK and vice versa.
All major couriers in Belgium and I'm sure in other countries as well are working around the clock to solve the mysteries and making sure all of our parcels get back and forth again to the Kingdom.
There might be hiccups along the way, and customs might or might not hold it. Currently we have no clue what's about to happen. I had one parcel that was sent the 29th of December of last year, which got deliverd fine... but as it stands, I just can't get anything out to you guys. I'm sorry.
As soon as it changes, and positive news can be brought to you guys, I'll notify you through email if you're subscribed to our newsletter.
Thank you for your continuous support,
