Description

This new tungsten thread is extremely fine, strong and works well for tiny nymphs. The x-fine will tie a 28 and the fine is good for 12 thru 20. This material is actually wire but can be half hitched and adds a surprising amount of weight on smaller flies where lead creates too much bulk. 25 yards per spool.

Reviewer: from Minneapolis

I like this product but am not overwhelmed. I am unsure if I will buy it again. I like it for one layer of wire on smaller nymphs. It is difficult to get a smooth body with more than one layer of wire. It is stiff enough so that, if your fingers slip or drop the spool, the wire will spring off the spool and become very difficult to respool and work with again. I have klutzy fingers so it happened more than once. One can put it on a bobbin with ceramic or glass inserts but the wire can still spring off the spool if not kept under some tension.
