First of all, shame on you, you know better thant to go in there to look for fly tying stuff. ;)

 

Which Gudebrod thread did you buy? I like the 10/0 but that's a little light for your tying needs.

Rich,

 

I have three spools of the 6/0. I have not really had any problems with the stuff.

 

You said you are tying on a size 10 hook. What are you tying? Some large nymph? A crayfish pattern? A smallmouth "secret weapon"? Deer hair?

 

What was the problem you were having with the thread? Was it breaking? untwisting in some odd way? Could not get it to hold dubbing?

 

More later,

Ken

Rich, I was having a similar problem with one particular spool of 3/0 Danville. I couldn't put any tension on the thread while laying a thread base. I stripped off about 10 to 12 feet of thread and it was better, but still not right. Another 10 feet was removed and it's been fine ever since. Makes you wonder why? Dry rot from shelf-life, manufacturing defect,......what?
