Actually, I had it explained to me that Gudebrod still makes threads, just none that are labeled for "fly-tying". If you contact Chris Helm and his shop, he'll order a 5000 m. spool of the thread of your choice and respool it for you! (Awesome ain't it?) I use the 45 denier Gudebrod and it's slowly becoming my everyday thread - I love it so much! Dennis Potter is also a big advocate of Gudebrod, so I do like the Romans and try to get my hands on as much of it as I can!

Roy; I'm sorry to say I probably can't visit the sportfishingfair this year, too far up north I'm afraid. But who knows, maybe I have a lucky stroke.
Common sense and a tint of moral is long sufficient.

I have been absent from this forum for about two years. I am very glad to be back!
If there are fish to be caught, then I am most likely out on the water!

Currently trying to find a quality Silk that is not so expensive.. Most are about $5ish for like 8Meters so I have been trying to find some quality silk from sewing shops but have yet to find anything useable.
Anyone have any ideas?

I don't know what brands of silk you tried. I can't think of any that are just 8 meters. That seems awfully short. Personally I use YLI #100 or Pearsal's Gossamer silk for wrapping my bamboo rods. Pearsal's is the finest I know of and has very few if any fuzzies. YLI is about 200 meters, I think Pearsal's is only 50. Both are ballpark $5, but you won't find them any cheaper. Sewing shops ***might*** carry YLI. Look for quilting shops. I just buy mine off the internet and pay the shipping.
