UTC Ultra Thread 140 & 210 Denier

29 Reviews
SKU: F10162


Ultra Thread is a strong, flat, smooth, lightly waxed, slow building nylon thread.

UTC 140 is great general purpose thread for trout and other flies in the 6 to 16 size. The breaking strength of this thread is about two pounds. This thread will serve the beginning fly tier well, as it is not too bulky and its strength prevents breaking the thread until proper techniques are learned.

UTC 210 is an excellent for deer hair, steelhead, salmon, saltwater, and other flies in the 1/0 to 12 size. The breaking strength of this thread is about three pounds.

  • Length: 100 yds. spool

The UTC Ultra Thread 140 & 210 Denier is made in the U.S.A.

Excellent Thread

The best thread I have found for tying streamers, wet flies, and nymphs. Does not break easily while tying even with a fair amount of pressure applied.,

I will buy more soon, more colors

by Denny -

I am new to fly tying but this product was recommended to me by a friend who has been tying flies for over 60 years for Trout we have branched out to flies for Bass and Crappie. We live much closer to great Bass and Crappie fishing than Trout and I have not done much Trout fishing but I am learning. For this product to stand up to me it has to be good because I know I pull things pretty tight just not use to the delicate part yet. I get a coupon for $5 for doing the survey but that could not buy a good rating if it did not deserve it.

My favorite type of thread

This thread can be used as is in a tight round braid or allowed to untwist to be flat. Its strands can be easily separated to hold dubbing.
