Story

We've filled our iconic Limited Edition Richard Wheatley for Best Made Fly Box with 96 hand-tied Dette flies, and are only offering this rare collection in an exclusive edition of ten boxes. Since 1928 the Dette Fly Shop in Roscoe New York has been hand-tying flies, earning them nearly a century's worth of entomological expertise. This Limited Edition Fly Box provides enough bugs for four seasons of fishing the Catskill Rivers and most any river on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Presented in our classic Wheatley aluminum fly box with windowed spring closures, our collection of Dette flies could not have found a more fitting home. There's no better reason to get the waders out of the closet or the drift boat out of dry dock than a chance to test a new fly, and we've got 96 of the best reasons waiting for you.
