UNI-Thread 8/0 Waxed
8/0 UNI-Thread is a thin yet strong, continuous polyester filament fly tying thread. It is an excellent choice for midge to medium sized flies when 6/0 is too much. UNI-Thread comes pre-waxed, ties flat on the hook, and is available in a wide assortment of colors.
- 72 denier
- 200 yd. spool
I use this thread for almost every fly I tie besides big streamers for steelhead, and I do not see why you could not use it for those either. Works great and have no complaints!
This thread is simply the best! It's got a great breaking strength, lies flat, and is very durable. Tie anything from spey flies to a size 20 zebra midge.
I use UNI Thread 95% of the time when tying flies. The 8/0 works great for size 16 and smaller flies. I like the vast assortment of colors that is offered in this thread.
