Default cream midge / UFO white body thread ?

Getting ready for a juna trip and i want to tie up some of the cream thread midges i usually get from abe's down there but i'm not sure what the heavier white/cream thread they use for the body is. It is essentially the same as the rough rider cream midge here:

I use pearl white floss....when wet, perfect color and just a touch shiny.

It looks like they just twisted it real good before wrapping it around the hook.

Yes HC, you are right on the money.

Tyed Yong style the thread is started at the half way point of the hook, then wrapped forward to the eye, then back over itself to a point just above the barb. Spin your bobbin counter clock wise till the thread is tightly wound, then wrap forward making sure each wrap touches the previous wrap.

The original pattern called for tieing in black thread for the head. I eliminated this step by simply coloring my cream thread with a Black Sharpie, building the head and whip finishing.

Once you have your materials set out in order, you can crank these little patterns out in a couple minutes each, if not in less than a minute if you really try.


Disclaimer: I have never met Mr. Yong. I was given some "Yong Specials" and cut them apart to see how they were tyed. The UFO incorporates his method of twisting thread for a segmented affect.
