Default Re: What Size/Brand Thread for size 24 dry flies

I've used 17/0 Uni thread for small flies. It's white so I use a marker if I want to color it. I've also used 12/0, which is a bit stronger and comes colored. I think I got Orvis, but don't know that it's better than other brands. I really learned thread control with the 17/0 thread, and I enjoy tying with it. doesn't build up bulk on small flies and being able to color it, I can use it for bodies.
