A hybrid cross between a thread and fine round tinsel, Iridescent threads are a fine tinsel wrapped around fine monofilament strands as a core. For fly tying it acts like a fine wire. Wrapped tight around a fine hook and the strands of tinsel can be opened slightly if you wish giving a slightly faceted, gleaming surface. We developed these threads initially for vibrant buzzers and chironomids, caenis and corixa water boatmen, what we finished up with is a thread that is ideal for trout, salmon, saltwater and predator flies for bodies, thoraxes and vibrant hot spots.
