Tacky Fly Fishing wins award at IFTD 2015
Tacky Fly Fishing repeats it’s International Fly Tackle Dealers show win with a second “Best of Show” award for the “Big Bug Box”
American Fork, UT—July 16, 2015
Orlando, FL, July 16, 2015: Tacky Fly Fishing, a company founded in late 2013 made its debut at the International Fly Tackle Dealers Show in 2014, where their “Original Fly Box” was voted “Best of Show” in the Fly Box/Storage System category. For a second year in a row, Tacky Fly Fishing won the same category, this time for the “Big Bug Box”, a fly box that features a thicker slit silicone insert, an innovative first-in-the-industry 3-D molded design, and a deeper format for holding larger streamers and dry flies. While slit foam has been the dominant mechanism for retaining flies in boxes, the founders of Tacky Fly Fishing devised a superior mechanism for fly storage that utilizes a slit silicone insert. “The advantages of slit silicone for fly retention include superior holding strength, significantly increased durability, and virtually no memory,” explained Tim Jenkins, a co-founder of Tacky. The young company has demonstrated its legitimacy, taking home the “Best of Show” award 2 years running.
