From Fulling Mill:
Fulling Mill, Europe’s premier manufacturer of fishing flies, has been appointed the exclusive distributor for the award winning Tacky Fly Box for the whole of Europe. The Tacky Fly Box was the brain child of Tim Jenkins and Ki Aston, two American fishing entrepreneurs who had long been frustrated in their search for the “perfect” fly box. Not being able to find what they were looking for, Jenkins and Aston decided to design the “perfect” fly box themselves.
Two years in the making, the Tacky Fly Box was launched in the USA in early 2014 to great acclaim, and has already picked up numerous awards – Fly Fusion Magazine “Editors choice award”; Fly Tyer Magazine 2014 “Editors choice award”, Outdoor Canada Magazine 2014 “best new fly gear” and most notably IFTD’s 2014 New Product Best of Show Award.
The Tacky Fly Box is a tough and sleek polycarbonate box with a clear top, a magnet closure system and a patent-pending silicone rubber insert. It is the insert that is attracting all the interest in that, unlike many of the boxes currently on the market, it has little memory and therefore holds flies securely over a much longer time frame.
More sizes and designs of The Tacky Fly Box are expected in 2015.
“I am delighted that Fulling Mill has agreed to represent us in Europe,” commented Tim Jenkins. “Given that Fulling Mill makes some of the best flies in the world, our association with them makes absolute sense. The Tacky Fly Box has taken the US by storm, and we look forward to building a significant business with Fulling Mill throughout Europe over the next few years.”
“Teaming up with Tacky fits our strategy of identifying innovative, excellent quality, complementary products and bringing them into our growing stable of world class brands. We are really excited with this initiative, as we feel there is a gap in the market for The Tacky Fly Box” remarked William Landale, Managing Director of Fulling Mill.
