Some time ago I bought some invisible mending thread (Nylon) from John Lewis and used it successfully to tie materials onto jig heads for perch fishing.
The nylon is very thin and strong, so a lot of pressure can be applied. Super glue, varnish and wax work well with the nylon.
It proved “good stuff” and held together well even after the attention of pike’s teeth.

As an experiment I decided to try tying a size 10 trout fly to see if it would be difficult to use. It was not. The next move was to try it on a size 14 and that proved a success. I was pleased with the finished result
It can be waxed to avoid materials slipping and I have also discovered it can hold colour from a permanent marker pen. The spool/bobbin fits in a standard bobbin holder, and you get a lot of nylon for you your money.
