    Default Yarn Question

    I know this is going to be a dumb question but Iím looking for a definition of Para-Post Yarn.

    Thanks, Rick

    Any kind of synthetic yarn works fine.
    Natural fiber yarns absorb water, synthetics don't.
    Personally, I have a life time supply of both "Aunt Lydia's" tri-lobal yarns and yarns used for rug hooking.
    There's no need for the marked up stuff from a fly shop

    Thanks Rip, I let the para-post go over my head since I've never tied drys, your answer is great, I only want to use the material as a indicator in the post position on some foam ants I'm playing with and have a ton of synthetic yarns material to work with, no need to buy more.

    All the best, Rick
