Tacky Tube is a newest addition to the Tacky fly family. It is an innovative way of storing flies designed for super-easy and convenient access to flies at any time, at the same time providing protection and preventing damage to the flies by shrubs or brush. The core shape of the tube with open sides allows for constant airflow that dries your flies, while keeping them safe and protected. For those looking for a minimalistic and convenient fly storage, with easy access to flies at any time – this would be a perfect choice.
The Tube is constructed from extra durable poly-carbonate. The inside features Tacky’s famous patent-pending silicone mat that has slits with step-downs that can hold a fly in virtually any direction. You simply guide the fly into those slits and anchor them. This system has extremely tight hold, unlike any other material on the market. The silicone can withstand extreme temperatures and is made in vibrant, light blue color for high contrast which makes flies easy to spot.
A very cool feature is a drop-storage capability which enables you to simply drop your fly inside the Tube. All you have to do is to place the Tube at a 45 degree angle, drop the fly and it will instantly be anchored to one of the 2 extra strong neodymium magnets placed on tube sides.
The smooth magnetic closure with no latch gives this box incredible, long lasting strength. The tube has four lanyard loops that allow you to easily anchor your Tube wherever fits best.
Tacky Tube has the following dimensions: 5 x 4 x 4 cm (2″ x 1 3/5″ x 1 3/5″).
