RE:Favorite big-fly thread?
In my humble opinion
a) kevlar, a pain to tie with
b) flat waxed nylon, ok it takes more turns to tie in material than I'd like.
c) monocord, good for most flies.
d) monofilament,haven't tried it, and I dont know why.
e) that braided one with the guys name. Is this Giorgio Benochi? I liked this thread but its expensive at ~ $3.00/spool.
What I've been using this year is Guidbrod 3/0. It's cheap, strong and on nice big spools with a good lip to hold the thread when in the tying kit.
