If your a tyer that has to build up a plain thread body and hates the time and all the wraps it takes to do so, Well my friend your prayers have been answered. Take less wraps on the shank and still get a tight compressed body. great for tying simple midge bodies. would not recommend using it on the whole fly half hitch after your body is done. the material is like a lycra spandex material. would recommend to anyone with a heartbeat
This is a nice alternative to thread bodies. It also is a reasonable alternative to floss that is significantly easier to work with, however I find it lacks the shine and translucency of floss. This is also a great way to build up a slim body on dry flies instead of dubbing, I really like the look of the body this makes on a stimulator or elk-hair caddis.
This is such a pleasant material to work with, I find myself looking for ways to use it. It makes nice tapered bodies, as well as being good for tags, tails, and wings. A well rounded selection of colors a good price.
