It's not clear, but magnetic closure is nice.

Designed in an exclusive collaboration between Tacky and Orvis. The perfect box to organize flies for dropper fishing. One side has the Original Tacky Mat for small nymphs and the other side has the Big Bug Tacky Mat for larger patterns such as streamers, hoppers, stimulators, parachutes, and larger nymphs. Holds 240 flies total. Tacky silicone mats hold better and are much more durable. The box is a tough polycarbonate that won't warp and closes with a secure magnetic closure. Slim profile takes up less room in your vest. In solid gray. Imported.7"L x 3¾"W x 1¼"D.Perfect box to organize flies for dropper fishing

Nice looking fly box, but $20 seems a bit steep for something like this.

FWIW: there's also this one - https://www.orvis.com/p/tacky-deluxe/2JJA?item_code=2JJA0000&adv=127748&cm_mmc=plas-_-FlyFishing-_-2... [orvis.com]

I'm relatively new to fly fishing so all I've known are the fly boxes with foam padding. I guess the silicone based ones make for an easier time inserting and removing flies?

Yes, and holds things well, doesn't absorb water, more durable than the usual foam. But read some of the reviews of these. Seems that a lot of them aren't quite right as far as the slits being cut properly or 'healing' depending on whose side you want to believe. One thing that I've noticed over the years about stuff on deep clearance from Orvis - there's usually some reason for that. Not always and not necessarily meaning don't buy it in all cases, but worth reading the reviews to understand why it's going cheap if it's something that you're not familiar with.

Orvis does have some good stuff. And they make it easy for someone starting out. But generally VERY expensive. Most everything that they have you can find the same or equal elsewhere for a lot lot less.

I agree with most of those points. You pay the premium for the satisfaction guarantee. The cheapy amazon silicone boxes are hard to judge because the ones I saw have just a few reviews.

I believe these are on clearance because Fishpond recently bought Tacky. It could also be because the insert color is green, and we all now how popular chartreuse flies are Smilie
