Using Tying Threads

Our threads come ready to use and fit all standard fly tying bobbins holders. With a massive range of colours we are certain you will find exactly what you need in stock. However if you what a unique colour we have an answer for you, use a thread like Nano Silk which is a GSP (Gel Spun Polypropylene) and permanent marker pens. Using a technique like this you can simply order white thread, tie you fly accordingly, and colour the last few inches of thread before you whip finish your fishing fly. Apply a coat of varnish and you are done!

Denier and Thread Sizing For Fly Tyers

Thread diameters were created in the 1930s. In the past fly tyers have been using 6/0, 8/0, 12/0  fly tying threads plus many others, however in 1988 WAPSI Fly introduced a thread called 70 UTC and 140 UTC for their UTC threads based on denier sizing. There has been confusion since and of course some manufacturers sizing is not always accurate making it even more difficult. Some materials stretch, which can be useful or a problem for the fly tyer. For example; nylon has about 25% stretch, polyester around 15% stretch and gel spun only 3% stretch. Check our thread comparison blog post here

Not used this wire, and several other colours purchased at the same time, as I am putting together materials to do some tying when the weathers bad. However the service was excellent as usual, and the items as decribed, will be using Essential Fly a lot more in the coming months.
