Tacky Fly Fishing “Original Fly Box” selected as best new product in the Fly Box/Storage System category at the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show
American Fork, UT, July 18, 2014 — Orlando, FL, July 18, 2014: Tacky Fly Fishing, a company founded in late 2013 made its debut at the International Fly Tackle Dealers Show with a new fly box featuring an innovative fly retention mechanism. While slit foam has been the dominant mechanism for retaining flies in boxes, the founders of Tacky Fly Fishing devised a novel 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 mechanism, utilized in the company’s first product “The Original” was voted best new fly box by fly tackle dealers at the 2014 show.
