Ultimate Tying Silk
Fish On Ultimate Tying Silk uses a new generation of hi-tech fibre and is manufactured specifically for fly tying. Developed by two members of the Fish On team (scientist John Pearson and England international John Tyzack) UTS is probably the thinnest yet strongest fly tying silk available.
Ultimate Tying Silk was created to allow the tying of the smallest and thinnest of natural looking fly patterns without the inconvenience of thread breakages associated with ultra fine diameter threads. The extra tension afforded by the thread’s strength means more resilient flies and no need to use varnish on your whip finish; a four turn whip finish can be pulled extra tight and won’t come undone.
Ultimate Tying Silk is a multi strand material making it easy to split for dubbing loops but it is spooled with the optimum number of twists per metre making sure the thread won’t separate unless required. With this optimum number of twists per metre UTS is very easy to control; you can open the twists slightly to make it lie flat on the hook giving almost no thread build-up. Alternatively UTS can be spun tight to give an incredibly thin profile that will disappear into the fly’s dressing – this is particularly useful on tiny parachute hackles.
Due to the strength of Ultimate Tying Silk it is recommended to only use ceramic bobbin holders. The thread can only be cut when under tension and we recommend the use of a craft blade or second best scissors as long term use may blunt your best scissors.
