Nano Silk 30D, 50D, 100D, 200D GSP Hints If you rotate Nano Silk anti clockwise to untwist it (it has 100 twists per meter to keep the thread together) it will lay perfectly flat. Nano Silk can be used for foam or split for a dubbing loop with a fine needle.

Use with ceramic bobbins 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 possibili es and can be used for micro flies to large flies. Virtually unbreakable and s ll capable of being split down for dubbing twists. There is no fly tying thread as strong as Nano Silk anywhere. (see page 160 and at h p://globalflyfisher.com/ e‐be er/fly‐tying‐thread‐table) Because Nano Silk lays perfectly flat you get no thread build up. Indeed check out our Youtube video where we put 100 wraps on a thread and you s ll have no head buildup! With Nano Silk you will have confidence that even the smallest of flies can be ed without your thread breaking! Strength 10 mes stronger than high quality stainless steel of the same diameter.

White Nano Silk can be dyed with a simple permanent marker pen for any color you may desire. Alternatively, the last 4” 100mm can be colored with a marker pen for a head. As with ALL GSP type threads Nano Silk must be used with a ceramic bobbin holder. Use a craft blade or razor blade to cut Nano Silk. It is extremely tough, please don’t use your best scissors!
