1lb mono huh?

I'll look into that thanks.

I know the braid gets that small, but I need the stiffness of a mono. Not concerned about strength.

I'll keep brainstorming......

Look for some mono type sewing thread at a fabric store, I think you'll be able to find what you're looking for at a place like that.

Yes there is. Tectan monofilament is sold by Cabelas and you will be able to find it at the Cabelas web site. Their 2# test is .0031 and 3.1# test is 0.0039. It is very good line. I believe the one you want is Premium Plus, probably in clear although I think they sell green also. I use the 3# for trout fishing and it is excellent for the purpose.

Second, if you need just a small amount, use 8x fly fishing tippet material.

May I ask your application for this fine line?

Sure, Rio Powerflex 7x tippet material is .004 in, and 8x is .003 in. Pretty small stuff but needed if you plan on using size 32 trico dry flies.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
