Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great threads lead to great flies! I have used others ”hot” name brand threads and nothing I have used in 12/0 is as strong as orvis12/0. Orvis sources a great thread!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fabulous Thread for Fly Tying Smaller Flies I first read about this thread in John Gierach's book; "Good Flies", and I decided to try it out. This is a reorder of this product! It is amazingly strong for its size. Close to strength (or stronger) as other popular 8/0 threads. Tying neat, strong heads on smaller flies is no longer an issue!
