UTC 70 Thread
Ultra Thread has been engineered as a fly tying thread from the beginning. It is not an ‘off the shelf’ thread as are many others.
All of Ultra Thread’s characteristics were carefully chosen to enhance its tying performance. Here are a few of the thread characteristics that make Ultra Thread ideal for fly tying.
- ties flat
- lightly waxed with a slight twist
- has a small amount of stretch
- builds slowly
- a thread retainer built in (side washer)
- 100 yard spools.
UTC 70 Denier is a great size for tying the smallest of flies and for tying with low bulk on larger fly patterns. It is the ideal choice for dry flies, nymphs and midges size 14 or smaller.
