Ian Lauerwrote a review of Orvis Tacky Fly Box on February 20, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Having fished 20+ yrs, I have had a few boxes. All of these were given away or retired after Tacky's boxes. The original is perfect for most flies under sz 12 as long as they don't have tall wings. I have a small sized one for nymphs, small dry flys, and wet flies, which is more than enough for most days on the water.
The Dry Fly box is incredible for bigger flies and dries. The molding is raised and angled to give ample room for tails, bushy hackles, and wings to sit naturally in the box without being bent or compressed. Don't spend valuable time or money on gorgeous flies with great wings and hackles only to mash them in a small box.
Like others say, the silicone is durable and magnetic closure makes access easy. I also added some small magnetic strips to the lid for holding those micro patterns and holding a flies for quick access.
