8/0 Uni Thread
8/0 Uni Thread is by far the most popular thread for tying small flies. This Uni Thread is made of continuous polyester filament that is slighted bonded together, allowing the thread to lay flat on the hook. Uni Thread wraps tightly to ensure true color, even when single layering on midges. 200 yard spools. Uni Thread size: 8/0.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCflyguy Good Thread This is really a pretty good thread. The first time I tried it was for tying up some size 18 Griffith's Gnats and it worked great. I actually prefer it to the 6/0 Uni-Thread, now I use it on all of my trout flies sizes 12 and under. It will occasionally break if you over-tax it though, usually when you're about to do the whip-finish. Other than that, great product for a great price. December 29, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by FlyTie Difficult to work with This thread is 8/0, but the difference between it and 6/0 is marked. It breaks at the drop of a bobbin and constantly lets me get to the tie off and then breaks on me. I have found that I can do about 10 wraps, then let the bobbin hang to allow the thread to unwind for a minute or two and then continue on. I would much prefer to use 6/0, but when I'm tying on a 22 or 24 hook, I can't afford the bulk. It's usable, just be very careful and check your thread constantly. Cannot possibly be used if you are a quick hand at tying. It will also fall apart on your fly after the fish have taken it a few times, so expect that it will only catch 3-4 fish. Have extras in your fly box. July 26, 2010

Rated 1 out of 5 by eangler Size is important This is an excellent tying thread that comes in more than one size. The BP description does not include the size making it impossible to order online. January 5, 2008

Details:$3.49 per spool is pretty expensive: for $3.49, I would expect a 400-500 yard spool.

A:200yd its alot better then the danvill thread and is offered in a better range l like it it feels toughter then others but its really a preference like using energizer over coppertops
A:The Uni-thread product provided by BassPro comes in a 200 yard spool. Remember that this is very small diameter stuff, whether in an 8/0 or 6/0 size. So, it's used for small flies in relatively small quantities. I tie for myself, and find that even a spool of a favorite color lasts more than a year.
