dont be duped by pattern recipes that call for specific brands of materials
substitute ultra wire for the hard to find lagartun
google is your friend
flytire, you da, man!!!
I had never come across the vendor you provided a link for. I loaded up on Hends spools of x-fine wire and body quill. That stuff looks awesome for my small midge patterns. I may even dedicate one of my midge patterns after you, but only if it catches a nice, fat 'bow.
We have a Sportsmans Warehouse here in town and I purchased several spools of Ultra Wire SM (the smallest wire they had), but it is too thick for my purposes.
The tarnished wire on the right spool (above) mic's out at 0.05mm-0.06mm. I think I read that Lagartun X-fine gold wire is in the 0.05mm range which is why I was trying to purchase it in the first place, but Henk's 0.09mm wire should work just as well. I hope anyway.
I sincerely appreciate the info. What a great way to start the week. Thanks!!
