I prefer to use Dannevile's for the majority of my work although I sometimes like to use the uni products on trout fly's and I normally like to use Pearsall's when I am tying classic wet flies or for flies with quill wings just depends on what I am tying I guess.

obviously the real answers are all of the above and more, for certain situations.

 

However, I recently switched my prefence for a general thread. I used to be heavy on Danville and Uni. tied a good majority with those, but I recently switched to UTC 70 and UTC 140. I've also started using Georgio Bennechi * alot, Veevus, Roman Moser Power Silk, Gudebrod, Euro Threads, and many others. But the two I use most now, are UTC and Bennechi.

 

UTC allows a much cleaner, smoother underbody for most of my applications.

I use clear mono line (diameter about 0.1 mm) for most of my flies, except the smallest dries & nymphs.. Mono is a must when making transparent streamers for the clear water (sea), but it works for almost any flies - very forgiving and durable material.

Danville 6/0 Flymaster and Uni 8/0 are great tying threads. I tie all my trout flies with them sizes ranging from 2/0 to 28's.

 

When they start producing hooks in the size 40 range I'll look into the micro-threads :-).

Uni 6/0 and 8/0 for most things but I'm a big fan of Danville Monocord 3/0 for all my bass flies of which I tie a lot of.

Uni, Danville, and Bennechi as much as possible. At the fly-fishing expo this weekend, I just picked up some of Superfly's new Superthread....listed as a 6/0, it is more like a 8/0, and crazy strong.....I think that I will like it.

UNI for most of my trout flies. I use a ton of 8/0 in black, red, olive, and brown. I have come to prefer UTC for anything saltwater or bass, because I like the way it lays down for clouser heads. I also feel that the UTC 140 allows me to torque a bit more than UNI 6/0 while still laying flat.
