  1. I was wondering if someone was going to ask.

    Sulky Thread: In Rochester MN it can be found at Joann Fabrics and Hancock Fabric, I’m sure you can find it at most fabric stores. The spools are 250yrds for about $3.50. I took empty thread spools and my drill and re-spooled it to use with my bobbin. The colors they have are great, I plan to get back there for a few others, for sure the dark Red. The thread is called HoloShimmer.

    Some notes about working with it:
    1. it compares to a 70 denier thread as far as strenght so you have to go easy with it.
    2. perhaps it was how I wound the spools with my drill but it seemed to want to curl a bit and I would have to spin my bobbin to lay the thread flat again before it broke.
    3. I also applied it by tying in a section of it and wrapping the body forward very tightly to form a gapless finish.

    I think it has it’s place at my bench, the blues, greens, reds, yellow, gold, white gold. They have alot of possibilities. It is thin and is pretty much like tying with the smallest tinsel that you can buy at a fly shop. Plus 250 yards should last you until you can’t tie flies anymore.

    Brian, let me know if you can’t find it and I will ship you some pronto.
