Story

Since 1860, the British-made "Wheatley Box" has been a steadfast icon of the fly fishing world. Our collaboration with Richard Wheatley is a reissue of the classic 1910 design, updated with our signature "Be Optimistic" slogan. The Best Made-Wheatley Fly Box is the ideal river companion, designed to be filled with the bugs of choice for every sortie. Dry flies live in the windowed compartments, each with a spring-loaded release for quick access. With an individual door for each compartment, your collection is protected from an errant gust of wind while selecting your next approach. As wet flies don't get along well in tight spaces, a flat foam insert in the lid offers room aplenty for your nymph collection. The shell of our Fly Box is black anodized aluminum, offering total protection from the challenging fishing environment. The universally recognized Best Made aphorism, "Be Optimistic" is perhaps the most vital detail: while perfecting your false cast or suffering a lost fight, friendly encouragement is sometimes needed to walk the river just a few hours more.
