    I believe Danville Flymaster was marketed as 6/0, even though it was 70 denier and closer to 8/0. The issue of thread designation has been going round and round for years; there's been...

    For larger flies, I really like the UTC 140; not flossy like their 70 denier, and it's really strong. Haven't tried the MFC in 6/0, but I would imagine it's a quality product, too.

    That's why you apply a thin coat of adhesive (Knotsense seems to work the best) to the tinsel body and wrap the pheasant while it's still wet. When it cures, the herl is pretty much embedded.

    I agree with Bugsy about the UTC 70 being "flossy"; Danville is good stuff and I use it a lot, but for smaller flies I really like MFC 8/0 - lays flat, if you want, but very strong. I hear great...
