"The yarn is a bit lighter than I was expecting, but that may just be an issue with my monitor at home. The quality is supreme and I am excited to use the yarn."

Add a Subtle Flash to Your Flies,
January 15, 2014
By: wlittlej
from Knoxville, TN
"This wonderful, versatile material has multiple uses for fly tiers:.
Nymphs: Chop up and blend in with your dubbing to add a subtle flash.
Emergers: Use under a split wing case to imitate a developing wing
Dry Flies: Make a fisherman-friendly visible wing. For example, Orvis uses it for winging on the deadly Orvis ICSI Midge.
Streamers: Blend with other synthetic wing material and add a subtle flash to flies for those shy Brown Trout and for Saltwater species..

Antron Yarn,

By: pitsfordman
from Northampton
"It arrives in a neat press fit bag, and the yarn is neatly wrapped around the card. Its good quality and very clean, I have made nice tidy Shipmans buzzers with it. I now intend to tie up more with different coloured antron yarn breathers so I will be order other colours shortly."

"Nice shiny Antron. Nice bright colors. I will wind some onto an empty spool and dispense it with a bobbin. I only wish it came spooled. Other than that no complaints."

Ideal for dry flies,
December 27, 2012
By: Peter123
from London
"This was an order I have repeated many times. Antron yarn - often called 'dry fly body yarn' is one of the best materials available for dry fly bodies; it forms neat,durable bodies that float all day. It is a pity, though that online tackle dealers tend to give the colours fancy, rather than descriptive names, which makes colour selection tricky."
