When we heard the news that Fishpond acquired Tacky, everyone at the shop was pretty excited to see what kind of spin Fishpond would put on the already robust line of fly storage solutions. Needless to say, we were excited for good reason.
As a BCorp and industry leader in environmentally responsible design, Fishpond introduced recycled materials into the composition of the 2020 lineup of fly storage systems, as spruced up the designs with brand new colors, packaging, and a new range of sizes.
Included in this year's lineup of Fishpond Tacky fly storage solutions are the Fly Dock, Original, Original 2X, Day Pack, Day Pack 2X, Dry Fly, Catch-All, Big Bug, and wildly innovative Flydrophobic Fly Boxes.
Let's take a moment to talk about the new Flydrophobic Fly Boxes. For the longest time, waterproof fly boxes have kept water out. But, they've also kept water in. So, when you store your wet flies in your fly box (we've all done it), you've inevitably experienced some rusting and damage to your flies. This is where the Flydrophobic fly boxes set themselves apart from the rest. They are both waterproof and breathable. Featuring a breathable eVent Fabric, the Flydrophobic Fly Box allows for moisture to dissipate and escape, but prevents moisture from entering the fly box. With an inner gasket forming a precise seal, water is kept out and the Flydrophobic Fly Box features the first latchless closure system on the market.
