Nano Silk is regarded as the tying thread of choice of professional fly tyers worldwide. Being so super strong and available in such a variety of colors and deniers it has endless possibilities and can be used for micro flies to medium flies. Virtually unbreakable and still capable of being split down for dubbing twists there is no fly tying thread as strong as Nano Silk anywhere.

The combination of strength and small diameter makes this our go-to tying thread. Because Nano Silk lays perfectly flat you get no thread build up. 

  • 18/0 30 denier thread
  • Breaking strain 1,140g / 2.51lb
  • perfect on hook sizes 16 to 32
  • Lays perfectly flat with no build up, regardless of how many loops you put on the hook
  • 10 times stronger than steel of the same diameter

Pro Tips:
  1. rotate anti-clockwise to untwist and lay perfectly flat. With just 2 or 3 light wraps of Nano Silk over foam you can then tighten and tie in foams or materials that would cut easily
  2. use white Nano Silk and simply color the last 4 inches (100mm) of thread for heads in a visible color
  3. with all GSP threads including Nano Silk Ultra 30D 18/0 Black you should always use a ceramic bobbin holder

Size: 18/0 (30 Denier), 50m (54 yards) spool.

The clip below shows just how thin this thread is. It keeps underbodies very slim and allows for precise tapers:

One of the best CDC's on the market, highest quality feathers, hand selected, dyed cold, and carefully packed. Dyed Feathers are from 4 to 6 cm and are mainly used for dubbing, soft hackles (using the clamp tool), or tying big wings like mayflies. All colours are dyed over natural white CDC...we do not start with bleaching!

CDC (Cul de Canard) feathers are feathers near "grease glands" under a duck's tail. Fly tying legend Rene Harrop described CDC in Fly Fisherman Magazine in the following way "CDC (cul de canard) feathers come from the preen gland of ducks. In appearance, they resemble small marabou blood feathers with unconnected fibers that radiate from tapered center stems. Soft yet strong, CDC floats remarkably well; flies tied with CDC are light and delicate on the water, and the fibers seem to pulse with the slightest breeze or motion of current. The ability to float a fly with less material lends a more realistic profile than is possible with conventional materials. Despite its subtlety, even a small amount of CDC is amazingly easy to see on the water."

These finely-fibered duck feathers with unique floating capabilities are often used for tying emergers and dry fly patterns.
