Story

Our Limited Edition Richard Wheatley Fly Boxes house the greatest living heritage in the fly fishing world: a collection of hand-tied flies from Roscoe, NY, the birthplace of American fly fishing, packed into the finest aluminum cases from Wheatley and adorned with Best Made’s "Be Optimistic" motto. The Richard Wheatley case is a reissue of a classic 1910 design. It features 10 spring-activated, glass-windowed compartments that protect your collection so it can live on as the envy of the river. Dette Trout Flies, the oldest family-run fly shop in the world, has fished the Catskills for generations and has the expertise to show for it. Our two custom Dette collections will have any discerning angler counting the days until spring. The Catskill Dry Flies mimic the mayfly hatch that skims the water in spring and have proven irresistible to trout worldwide. The Wulff Flies are named for legendary angler Lee Wulff, whose Royal Wulff pattern is a tried-and-true classic. The Wulff Flies play on the larger mayfly spring hatch, making them adaptable for salmon and steelhead, as well as trout. For any angler armed with a handsome fly box full of expertly tied mayflies—and a hint of encouragement from Best Made—this spring's trout, salmon, and even the "fish of a thousand casts" are well within reach.
