Diamond Body Thread – for micro flies

0 No tags Permalink

I have been asked how thin the Diamond thread is and how small the flies you make can be. In the previous article I forgot to specify this.

So here are some details:

  • 160DEN – that means aprox 6/0
  • metallic yarn reinforced with ultra thin GSP thread
  • 30m of material/spool

The Diamond Body Thread is versatile, it can be used for bodies of nymphs, thoraxes, wet bodies, etc.

A multitude of models can be made in all sizes. For example here is a small perdigon tied on size #22 hook.
