Thread: Thread Strength

  1. #1

    Default Thread Strength

    I saw a thread recently that mentioned a specific thread that had an excellent strength to diameter ratio and I would like to know specific brands of thread that are strong but thin.

    Hi J,

    I'm sure that you'll get connected to the thread thread if you try the search feature. I could look it up for you and paste it but what fun would that be

    I keep it simple, I have a good supply of 8/0 that was marketed under the Orvis label. I've used this for everything from #18 & 20 trout flies (and smaller) to the salmon flies I use here on my home rivers. It seems to work very well. Like everything else you can seek to refine this as far as you wish but the stuff I use will get your tying done if you want. I believe I have some Uni Thread 8/0 that work well also.


    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
