A hybrid between a thread and a 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. When wrapped tight around a fine hook, the strands of tinsel can be opened slightly to give a slightly faceted, gleaming surface.
We developed these threads initially for vibrant buzzers and chironomids. 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.
