  1. Greetings, I obtained some old fly tying materials including a variety of thread. The paper tags on the ends of a lot of the spools are missing so I don't know the weight of the thread for some of them. Some seem a little dusty. My main concern is that some of the thread breaks pretty easily if you pull on it. I have tried comparing it to some other 3/0 and 6/0 thread that I have and is seems to break easier then it does. Can thread go bad if it is old? Can it loose it strength, or could this be thinner 8/0 thread. Thanks Ron
  2. Flytire, I would like some yarn. Thanks for doing this. i should qualify as a newbie. I think this is my first post on the site. I have been tying for about a year. Ron
  3. I recently acquired a variety of older mustad hooks. The number system used is not the current one that one can find on all the cross reference tables. Has anyone tried to match these up with the more modern hooks or know of an older table. I should be able to figure out what most of them are correspond to and are used for but there are a few that have me stumped. A pdf of an old catalog might be useful as well. Any help would be appreciated. Ron Durham, NC
