Details

From it’s waterproof and breathable nature, to the silicone mat and anchoring system. The box not only looks amazing, but it is packed full of functional innovation.

There are many other aspects of the Flydrophobic SD that set it apart. Here are just a few…

  • Stainless Steel hinge pin
  • Lanyard loop for easy portability and carrying
  • The box itself is made of durable polycarbonate, just like all other Tacky Fly Boxes
  • Hinge stop

Waterproff & Breathable:

Here at Tacky we’ve always been very hesitant to build a waterproof fly box. The reason was simple. Waterproof fly boxes, as they existed prior to the Flydrophobic SD, only keep water out. We’re all guilty of putting wet flies back in our boxes and thus effectively trapping moisture inside. For us to build a waterproof fly box we knew it needed to not only keep moisture out, but it also needed to allow moisture to escape.

Waterproff Seal & Closure:

The patent pending, latchless, waterproof seal is the first of its kind in any fly box. The gasket not only keeps the moisture out, but is engineered with such precision that it securely holds the box closed, acting as the closure system as well.

Frame & Seal:

In order to allow the eVent fabric to do it’s job properly it was crucial that we create a complete seal when adhering the fabric to the lid of the box. Through a combination of compression, adhesive, and ultrasonic welding, the polycarbonate frame creates that seal, holding the eVent fabric securely in place. This mechanism allows the eVent fabric to keep the box free from any outside moisture.

Molded Silicone Insert:

The Flydrophobic SD utilizes the same mat system as our Predator fly box. This system is comprised of molded silicone slits that are compressed and closed shut by the plastic ribs on the bottom of the box. This patent pending mechanism allows us to precisely determine the size of the slits and thus determine the anchoring strength of those slits.

eVent Fabric:

The interior of the box lid is lined with eVent fabric. This fabric keeps moisture out of the box while still allowing moisture to escape. That’s right, it allows the box to breathe.

#WaterproofWithBenefits

What makes the eVent fabric truly unique is the billions of microscopic pores built into it’s proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapor that builds up inside the box.

  • Holds between 66 and 100 flies, depending on size
