This is for those fly tiers who love to tie the
"No See Em" flies, you know who you are, you always
enjoy sharing how you just tied up 12 dozen size 32
I found a great thread to use when you're peering
thru your electron microscope tying those intricate
flies nobody can see. Coats & Clark has nylon thread
that is .004 inch diameter. It is available in clear,
and gray, is twisted braid nylon thread, with tension
strength of 0.5 lb/.22 kg (my estimates). It is very
soft and limp, and should do the trick, for those tiny
flies you tie.
I just want to know how you transport that electronic
microscope when you're on the stream trying to put one
of those "No See Em's" on a tippet? At least I can see
this thread when it is still wrapped on the spool. For
all of you who do not have a electron microscope, the
nylon thread also come in .005 inch diameter.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the Bulletin Board, here at FAOL too.
