Tacky Fly Fishing wins award at IFTD 2016
Tacky Fly Fishing’s “Dry Fly Box” voted “Best of Show” at the International Fly Tackle Dealers show – the company’s third win in three years
American Fork, UT—July 15, 2016
Orlando, FL, July 15, 2015: For an impressive third year in a row, Tacky Fly Fishing introduced a new fly box at the International Fly Tackle Dealers show that was voted “Best of Show” in the Fly Box/Storage System category. 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 dry fly box is specifically designed using a 3-D molded, slit silicone insert to keep dry flies looking pristine. The 3-D molding allows the placement of material where it is needed to securely hold the fly and the removal of material that would smash hackles and bend tails. Their 2016 win marks the third straight win for a Tacky Fly Fishing product in the fly box category.
