We have seen a lot of gimicky fly box ideas float around over the years and hardly any hold up to the standard foam or slotted foam styles we've all used. However, the more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea of using silicon instead of the standard foam that fly boxes have been using for years.
So without having used the Tacky box, I had a few main gripes about my current box setups that I hoped the Tacky box would overcome.
- The slots on slotted foam boxes tend to grow wider as I move flies in and out -- to the point where they won't even hold a fly.
- We have several foam boxes where, after sitting in the hot sun for a time, the foam and adhesive used to glue them to the box would delaminate and the foam would warp or just peel off.
- I've had a few instances where my plastic foam slotted boxes were crushed when I sat on or leaned on my pack or bag.
- Some fly boxes, after long-term use, lose their ability to shut securely. Combine that with foam that doesn't hold flies and you create a recipe for a dropped box that will easily spill its contents. I did that once and spent quite a bit of time picking up small flies from the dirt and rocks. It was awesome.
