Generally, the only wheatley fly boxes that are worth any amount are the ones that have the windowed compartments. Also, large salmon fly models that have the large clips and multiple panels are quite collectable. Ebay has lowered the prices of these fly boxes over the years. Take some pics, especially of the flies as not only are full dressed salmon flies worth money, but also flies that can be attributed to certain well known tiers. Also, antique flies that have authentic indian crow feathers that are in excellent shape can have increased value.
