How do I find a specific item on your site?

Fishlips3 has incorporated a powerful search engine into our site. Simply type the item you're looking for into the Search box (left side) and press the SEARCH button. You can use the search box to find a broad range of products by typing a color, brand or material. But you can also be very specific in order to drill right down to the product you're looking for. You can even search by SKU if you're looking for an item you've previously ordered.

Another way to find items is by using the navigation bar located on the left side of every page. This lists major categories of items while our right hand navigation bar lists items by brand.

Do you sell wholesale?

While not categorically a wholesale site, Fishlips3 in the near future will take into consideration the total merchandise value of your order and will offer everyday discounts:

Consider signing up for the exclusive news of sales! (on the left hand portion of any page)

What if I have a resale license?

For customers located within Iowa who have a valid Iowa resale permit, please email us that information and we will set your account to non-taxable status. If you have already paid for an order, we'll gladly refund the sales tax. Fishlips3 does not collect sales tax from out of state customers.

Do you have a catalog ?

We do not have a traditional printed catalog, (people still do that?), but we think we have a pretty nifty website with more items added every week!
