Love this super-thin diameter braid!
Reviewer: A viewer from PA
I purchased the smolt blue iridescent veevus thread, and absolutely love it. White core with a super-thin fiber of flash material running parallel with the thread, in an extremely slow helix around the core. It gives off the look of a silver-backed colored tinsel shred for the flash portion. Personally, I use this for the body of a "Patriot" dry fly, which makes the shimmer a little less "flashy" than the original pattern, but which unexpectedly seems to catch more trout on my local waters. The product itself lays like a (two or three 8/0 threads-thick) braid, if not torqued down super-tight when wrapping; don't expect a single-thread-diameter product, but this is in no way as bulky as diamond braid or the likes. I love the stuff, can't praise it enough, and JStockard has some of the best prices and selections I've found (not endorsed to say that, honest).
