    Agree you may want some smaller thread for that size! I have some heads in 1/80 and 1/64. The 1/80 mostly are #8 hooks and a few #6, but the 1/64 I have #4 and #6 Sickle hooks in them, lol!

    Hankill- Nice, but make sure you squeeze close the slightly open hook eye, your line WILL slip out!

    I like fishing 1/64 and 1/80 but still get them with a #8 hook at least if I am fishing crappie. Gills love those small one. I really like just a lightcalf hair in white and pink or white and olive.

    I heat ya on the hook size.

    I lean toward bigger hooks for the smaller size... Since I don't make my own, I'm sorta locked on what can find.
    When I prefer Crappie and I get anything else, it's still fun to reel them in. It's a bonus if I get a gill. Better bonus if it's a Redear!

    Uni-thread 8/0 works for me very well.

    Bay Springs offerings for sure . They may be a little large though as 1/100 are the norm .

    some pine squirrel zonker strips should work great on tiny heads!! Arctic fox tail would be great too!!

    Did you mean for this to be in a different thread talking about the different thread size? I find it interesting for sure and you must have a very good touch/feel for your tying. I have trouble with thread that thin and do wish I had a better feel for that.
    I am going to try tying with more of my threads that I avoid like the plague, lol!

    You have inspired me a little!
