Wheatley Anniversary Fly Box
British company Richard Wheatley releases a Limited Edition fly box to celebrate 100 years of the first ever printed fly box
Jan 28th 2014/mj
The box itself is a modern version of the original 1913 Loch Leven Eyed Fly Box, which was printed on tin plate and made by Richard Wheatley. This new version uses the original design but is made in aluminum. It's made in a Limited Edition and might very well become as collectable as the original.
To commemorate the history of this fly box, one in every hundred of the new Loch Leven Fly Box will contain a free original Loch Leven Eyed Fly Box.
The modern Loch Leven Fly Box comes with a choice of four interiors:
- Flat foam in base & lid
- Flat foam in lid & ripple foam in base
- Ripple foam in base & lid
- 12 Compartments in base and flat foam in lid
The price will be 42 UKú for the three first models and 58 UKú for the box with compartments.
