Tacky Fishing have applied all they learned in a painstaking process, and this is a rendering of the final product. The Tacky Fly Box is a tough and sleek polycarbonate box with a clear top, a magnet closure system and a patent-pending silicone rubber insert. Box dimensions will be approximately 7″ x 3.5″ x 3/4″, with slots for 168 flies.
Thorough R&D found that most fly boxes are plastic for a reason- plastic is light, inexpensive, and versatile. The Tacky Fly Box is constructed of polycarbonate (the same plastic used in the lenses of most sunglasses) because it is extremely durable and shatter resistant.
Tacky identified the ideal box size for the typical fly fisher's pack. The box is approximately 7″ x 3.5″ x 3/4″ thick and holds 168 Flies. We designed the box with a magnetic closure system to avoid the latch closure mechanism that is prone to damage and failure.
Knowing the limitations and issues with the current boxes in the market, Tacky set out to find a solution. They tested many different materials and a number of different formats to address these problems. After numerous design variations in the inserts over the past two years including variations in materials, dimensions, and cutout formats, they finally identified this patent pending system that utilizes a similar slit-based mechanism using a far superior material and an ideal tear-drop shaped cutout that will ensure excellent functionality and a lifetime of fly-boxing bliss.
