  3. thank you for the education regarding fly tying thread. good stuff for beginners my problem is not about different brands of thread and how they wrap around a hook shank my problem was about veevus thread. so i'll try again i have been using veevus thread for a number of years. after finishing a spool of 12/0 black veevus thread, i tied a new fly with a new spool of thread. it was then that I noticed the thread was a little bit larger the previous thread i had tied with. the spool is labeled 12/0 but i dont feel it is 12/0. in my visual inspection it is bigger. it even feels thicker when extracting thread from the bobbin holder to tie it onto the hook shank its quite possible the spool is mislabeled. threads are manufactured in the same factory regardless of sizes. its quite possible spools got mislabeled to veevus thread users - have you noticed any thickness differences from one spool to another of a particular size (12/0) in thread thickness? thank you norm

  7. When you tie with one brand of thread long enough you get a feel for that thread I use veevus 12/0 threads for most of the flies I tie but I have noticed lately it seems like it is much larger than 12/0, more like 6/0 or 8/0 It builds up faster than 12/0 thread should Maybe the spools are mislabeled? I don't know Do I stick with veevus but use 14/0 or 16/0? Anybody else have that experience with the brand of thread you use? Time to switch brands? Ultra-thread? Nano silk?

  20. I basically follow the order of materials as written in a fly recipe why hackles are before or after a wing, i have no idea but maybe the hackle in front of the wing may push more water and give the fly a little wiggle to attract a fish why is it a beard hackle or wrapped hackle i have no idea i prefer a tying a beard/throat hackle under the hook shank rather than wrapping the hackle and then pulling it down under the hook shank to resemble a beard/throat. it basically gives the same appearance. at least to me thats my story and i'm sticking to it πŸ˜ƒ
