Strong, smooth, flat, lightly waxed, slow building fly tying nylon thread. It has a breaking strength of about 1 lb. and is recommended for size 14 and smaller flies. Same size as Danville 6/0. 100 yd. spools.

Good for small flies, little or no thread build up

Reviewer: from Cumming, GA US

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.

Second To None

Reviewer: from CANON CITY, CO USA

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.

One of the best threads available

Reviewer: from Houston, TX

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!

Terrific for "art flies" or fishing flies

Reviewer: from Barboursville, WV US

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.

Converted to Danville

Reviewer: from West Valley City, UT US

The kit that I started tying with included several spools of this thread and I used to have quite a bit of trouble with fraying and breakage. I have since started using Danville 6/0 Flymaster+ instead and found it to work much better for me. I would be unlikely to go back to Ultra Thread in the 70 denier.
