Buyers Guide To Foam in Fly Boxes
We use a large variety of foams to provide our customers with the maximum choice. Our foam is made in the U.K. as this gives much better performance over imported foam.
Great all-purpose foam that suits dry flies, spiders, wets and nymphs. Exceedingly small nymphs can be accommodated either side of the foam. Available to fit a 6" box, in black or white.
General purpose foams can be used for most flies, but is less good for hackled and larger spider flies. A huge number of flies can be accommodated in a box, available for all our Richard Wheatley boxes.
1. 6" Low profile good for hackled and spider flies as the hook is supported leaving the hackle free. Also suitable for nymphs, wets and lures or streamer flies. Suitable for small and mid sized flies.
2. 10" High profile ripple foam with a high profile is good for large, dressed or salmon flies. Needs to be in a 1.5-inch box. Not as suitable for smaller flies.
For small nymph and wet flies, can use both sides of the slot so the box holds plenty. Larger flies use just one side.
EASY SLOT FOAM

EASY GRIP FOAM
1. Standard - Good for holding flies upright with more space between them. Can be used with both smaller and medium-sized flies.
