Yeah, that’s how it goes. Some ppl love vanilla ice cream, and some love 
chocolate (I love BOTH). But I too, would go back to Guderbrod if they fired it 
back up for fly tying as well. Seems like it was about the best “all around” 
thread there was and it was a shame they shut it down. I can get all the 
Guderbrod “coat material” I want, because there is a sewing factory only 10 
miles or so from us and they make Joseph E. Banks suits, which is a high dollar 
suit, and that’s all they use in those is guderbrod thread. But I tried it back 
when my wife worked at that place and they’d change out those huge “cones” of 
thread and she’d get the left overs, which still would have 500-1500 yards of 
thread left on them. I tied a few thread bodied flies like ants, and black 
widow spiders, but otherwise it’s a TOTALLY different thread from that that 
they mad for fly tying. Chuck

      So funny, I swear by 6/0 & 8/0 unithread and me don't like Danville. I 
would tie with Gudebrod if it comes back, like that one a lot!

      Gary: I agree. I “swear by” Danville’s Fly master plus.  I’ve heard 
others say they wouldn’t have that “cheap stuff” in their tying room. “Find, 
send it on to ME” is my reply LOL... I use 6/0 on bluegill flies, and 3/0 on 
bass flies. Exception to that is that when I’m tying thread body “fire ants”, 
Flying blac k ants, and Black widow spiders, I use “Big fly” size “B” by Uni 
products. Works for me. I know pp who swear by Unithread sizes 3/0 and 6/0 but 
I wouldn’t habve that in my fly tying room. #1 it’s too expensive for what you 
get, and #2 if frays wayyyy too easily for my taste. So, I guess it’s like 
girlfriends/boyfriends, wives/husbands in that “beauty it in the eye of the 
Tier  er, uh Beholder” LOL.. Chuck

      Whats all the fuss over thread?  Find the ones that work for you and use 
them.  What works for Bill may be the very thread John swears at.  What works 
for you is the one you want.
