This is the universal thread for fly tying. You can tie most fly patterns (salt water and fresh water) with this thread only exception would be really small midges. That is why you will generally see the best colour selections in this size of thread.
This very strong thread is excellent for tying streamer patterns. It goes transparent and shows the underneath tying materials colours perfectly when head cement is applied. This makes better sense than a black or any other one colour effect that other normal threadswould make. There is also no better thread to ties down hourglass eyes because it actually melts together when drop of crazy glue is appplied to hold eyes in place.
A few wraps of the right size (see below) of this material will increase your flies sink rate considerably. This material also builds out bodies to make them even more life like. Try squeezing this material with flat pliers to make the perfect looking rock crawling nymph of your favourite stream. .

Even though this thread is thin it lays flat on a hook and is very strong for its diameter. This thread ties streamers as well as nymphs but it is most preferred by the steelheaders and salt water tyers because its colours are so vibrant.
This is the original half moon shaped ribbing. This curved on one side and flat on the other side fastens to the hook the best of all these simular products. It also gives a very realistric 3D shape to the wrapped segments. Make sure to buy the right size for best results.
