The UTC Ultra Thread 70 Denier fly tying thread is favored by many fly tyers because of it’s abilities. The thread has been engineered and developed specifically with the progressive fly tyer in mind. The thread can easily be tied flat so that wraps are precise and so that unsightly bumps do not form. This is especially important when tying smaller flies and finishing the heads of flies. The thread is not bonded, and that along with the flatness of the thread lends itself to splitting the thread for inserting other materials. items such as dubbing or hackle can be added to create advanced dubbing loops without needing to double over the thread, thus avoiding extra thread bulk. UTC is made from nylon, which has a similar strength as polyester, but has stretch that allows the thread to better grasp the materials being bound. The 70 denier thread is great for tying smaller flies (#12-#26) and can be used as the body material on small midges and mayflies. The UTC 70 comes on standard sized spools in lengths of 100 yards. The spools include an end cap that secures the loose end of thread when not in use.
