The innovative designers at Tacky Fly Fishing have come up with a neat way of keeping flies secure and avoiding them being detached from a conventional fly patch when moving through brush.
In a different and minimalistic approach to retaining flies, the Tacky Tube replaces the traditional patch by using the same silicone mat used in Tacky fly boxes rolled into a tube. This is housed in a protective, polycarbonate shell that is hinged for easy access.
Flies are simply slid down the end of the tube and anchored firmly in ready-made slits.
“What we really like about the product is that if you are in a hurry or there is a massive hatch going on you can simply bite off the fly and drop it into the tube, where it is held by two powerful magnets,” says Tacky co-founder, Tim Jenkins. “Meanwhile they are exposed to the air to dry off until you are ready to stow them away properly or use them again.”
The American Fork, Utah, company says that the Tacky Tube can be anchored on a lanyard via loops provided on the tube, or on a zinger.
