Every once in a while a product comes along that is so well thought out and simple it stands far above the rest. For us that is the new fly boxes from Tacky Fly Fishing. Their whole thing is that your fly box is such an important piece of your fishing equipment why settle for a cheap plastic and foam box that will fall apart after one season or god forbid leak and rust your hooks? Whether you invest hard earned money into buying flies or precious time tying your own it is a terrible thing to see them destroyed by the elements.
What sets this box apart from the rest is three main things:
1. Quality-high impact plastic case and silicone slotted inserts
2. Design-the offset fly slots make it really easy to organize flies and select them without crushing any materials
3. Fit-slim sized box takes up minimal space in your vest, pack, or boat bag.
The clear lids are nice for a quick peek at what's in your box especially if you have multiple boxes committed to either river specific or fly specific boxes: nymph box, spring creek patterns, Yellowstone bugs....
I also really like to magnetic closure that assures it's tight when you're more focused on the 20" brown finickly sipping PMD spinners as you change patterns.

Right now they come in two different sizes the original and day pack. This is a box actually designed by fishing guides not just a generic mold of plastic that will hold flies.
