    I was looking at some patterns on the internet from worldwide tiers and some of them use a product called galaxy wonder thread. I have never seen it or heard of it. Has anybody?? It looks like it would make some pretty good natural colored ribbing for nymphs and what not.

    Josh,

    I've never heard of the stuff myself. I did contact Hans Weillenman in the Netherlands about it. He's checking into it and will let me know as soon as he finds something out.
