  1. Thanks for all the help! I'm back in action now. Tied four flys today that turned out pretty darn good in my opinion. Figured out that my bobbin was just too tight and the thread wasn't spooling out smoothly enough. I had to put too much tension on it and was just snapping it. Think I might upgrade to a ceramic bobbin though... Now just to get those whip finishes down pat! Thanks again!
  2. Hello, I'm a new kid on the block and need some advice on thread. The thread I'm using now came from a Cabela's kit and it keeps fraying. I'm tying small flies for Virginia trout streams. Drys, wets, nymphs, and terrestrials. What is the best thread and in what sizes? Where do I get it? When the thread breaks while tying a fly is it because I'm putting too much tension on it or is the thread cheap? Thanks for any help! virginiaangler
