This stuff is a fly tier's best friend! VERY STRONG! I used this stuff for everything, from #16 adams to #4 woolly boogers. Even spun some deer hair for the ultimate test, and did better than expected. A must have for tier's who focus on small dries.
Only thread to use on very small flies

Does not build up bulk for #18 & smaller flies.
Unit Caenis thread is just too frail 0 Trico is better.Ceramic bobbin a must. Keep as white the make translucent body material shine. Colour with permanent marker for head. I add varnish to thread before whip finishing, rather than varnish after whipping.
No build up...

Impossible to create buildup with this thread (that is a good thing). For small midges and mysis patterns this stuff is really greatl, I use this thread a lot. Only downside is that it will take a little getting used to as it will break on you pretty easily.

I love this thread and it is incredibly strong considering its size. With that said I couldnt believe when I read the review that claimed this thread had been used for everything up to #4 wooly buggers. That gives tyers an unrealistic expectation and honestly would be quite foolish. This is 17/0 thread meant for small dries 22+, not #4 streamers. It does a great job, adds very little bulk, and holds up well when fished. Using a ceramic bobbin is highly recomended.
Perfect for the tinys

This thread is fantastic for keeping jujubee and jujubaetis patterns slim and proportional looking. It will lay very flat, has more than adequate strength, and takes a marker very, very well. Smooth hands are needed as it will fray if caught on a calloused hangnail or ticks the hook point.
