Ultra Thread 70 denier is great for small flies. There is little or no thread build up, reducing eye crowding. Great for size #18 and smaller, especially midges, allows you to have more say so on how the body looks b/c of the low to 0 thread build up. I recomend this to anyone tying primarily #18 & smaller.
This is the standard to which all thread should be measured. While I tend to switch to a stronger thread for some streamers, this thread is great for dry flies, nymphs, and even strong enough for most streamers.
I can't imagine a better thread than Ultra 70, especially for tying classic wet flies and Atlantic salmon flies. It's strong, lays flat and comes in all the right colors. The only drawback I've found is that Ultra 70 white thread occasionally tangles on the spool. Other colors don't seem to have the problem.
Sits flat on the hook when you need it to and can easily cord up. Easy to split for dubbing loops and comes in a number of colors. This is the thread I usually have on my bobbin. Works well for small flies too!
I tried a spool of this thread after using mostly UNI thread. I love how i can untwist it and make it lay flat for minimal build up, or twist it to make more of a cord. Thread it also pretty strong, i have never broken it and I am a novice flytyer
