Appropriate uses for this Flat Braid? We have used this material for bodies on salmon, steelhead, and trout flies. The colors are fantastic, and the material is super tough in spite of being super thin. Even though this carded flat braid is the widest offered, We have used this braid as body on hooks from size10 through Intruders that are over four inches long. Of course the Mini Flat Braid and Micro Flat Braid is superior when making bodies and ribs on smaller sized hooks.
How is Lagartun Carded Flat Braid different?
Very thin. At about 0.100mm.
Wide enough At 1/8 inch this braid will cover steelhead and salmon flies as complete bodies or allow you to create a prominent, wide rib.
The material? Carded Flat Braid is "Metaloplastic", which is not quite metal but it is darn tough plastic material that is reflective, a little translucent in some colors, and lays flat as can be imagined. Practically anyway. It does lay flatter than traditional Flat Diamond Braid.
The Quantity per card? Five yards!
How many colors do we stock? We have ordered in roughly 20 colors of the Lagartun Carded Flat Braid.
