I view this as good news and find it promising that a U.S.-based company has what it takes to save a well established company from another country for a change. With a little luck and smart thinking I hope we can see more manufacturing growth on this side of the ponds. Goodness knows that country that seemed to have gained the worlds manufacturing jobs seems to be doing quite well because of that.
My fingers are firmly crossed in hopes that the Wheatley/REC partnership makes no losers in this deal, from the owners on down to the long-time Wheatley users.
Whole heartedly agree with you on this. It's a wonderful thing to see US based business giving CPR to a well respected and known company outside of the states, especially one steeped in angling history and tradition in the UK. Hopefully this story has a good ending for both countries and both businesses.

What incredible foresight on my part. Yeah, that's the ticket! Foresight! Who knew???

That is probably the most impressive personal collection of fly boxes I have ever seen. I have been in fly shops with less boxes and bins than that!

Very very cool!
