that's what i figured....."stiffness".....i've been told that before by guys 
who make furled leaders. makes perfect sense.......i just wanted to hear your 
reasons and keep the thread goin' for those who are following to learn. there 
are hundreds (or so i'm told) of lurkers out there who follow along to learn 
"Stuff"  yet who never post. i wish they would.....but that's up to them. 
Thankx, you've always been a good one.  btw, of all the different waxes i have, 
and use.....depending, Veniards is one of my favorties.

Mark

yes, 2 reasons

1. nearly 40 years ago I was told always wax silk thread with Veniards wax, to 
protect the silk and improve the durability of the flies, always have always 
will..

2. The furled silk is stiffer and holds the open shape of the eye.

Iain, is there any specific reason you used waxed (silk) thread over non-waxed?

I furled the waxed silk thread to make the eye.

I normally use cream silk but here using red & white thread to show the 
construction

The all cream eyes look fine to frame but I wouldn't fish them
