    Default Tacky fly-boxes

    Looking at these boxes from Tacky anyone used them before? Just love innovation! Be sure to check out the Tacky Tube too.

    They are awesome. Only issue is with the front cover getting scratched up.

    Have look at these. New from Orvis and Tacky.

    i have three of these boxes - two standard and one of the large streamer ones. Most flies hold well but i have found the ones that fall out the most are heavily weighted nymphs that maybe just have too much weight from the tungsten bead which pulls them slowly out if the fly boxes are left at the wrong ankle.

    Besides that, they hold fantastically and i just love the look of them. Really really cool boxes.

    The "Big Bug" box is just not gonna work for me...(weedguards et all on my largie flies,etc) the rest looks lekke! I see Mavungana is the local agent.
