I have purchased a 9', 8wt, Kennedy Fisher GT40 series, 2pc, graphite, fly rod. I started laying out the guide placement and discovered a problem. The 8th guide is too close to the spigot in the rod. I would like to know if any one out there has a placement guide for this particular rod. Also does anyone have any suggestions for guide thread and where to obtain it. I would like to use silk thread if possible but have been unable to locate any.
