Best thread for the price.
Reviewer: A viewer from MIDLAND, TX USA
Don't hesitate buy all of the colors at once; it is worth every penny. You can put a lot of stress on the thread spinning hair and you never know what color you are going to want next.
Reviewer: A viewer from Fulton, MO US
I was very frustrated with tying egg patterns, as my thread would often break during the high-tension needed to build the egg. A friend suggested Danville. I bought a spool from J. Stockard, and will never use another thread on my egg pattern. I can make two-three very tight wraps on the egg yarn, and it makes a beautiful fly. Great price, too.
Great thread, Terrible color ID
Reviewer: A viewer from Huntington Beach, CA US
I have enjoyed Danville's floss & thread for several years. In fact, I find myself changing the "standard" colors from Uni, more & more to Danville's Flymaster. However, it would make life much easier if Danville would print the color name on the spool label. The color NAME is far more important, when setting up the materials to tie a pattern than telling you it's 200 YDS. Just my 2 cents.
Best thread for all around especially split thread
Reviewer: A viewer from Kenner, LA US
This is the predominant thread I have used over my thirty years of tying. It is the perfect denier combining strength with minimal buildup. If you let the bobbin hang and spin it, you can untwist it to lay a completely smooth layer of thread. Also, by doing that, you can simply split the thread, insert some dubbing or ram's wool, twist back up and dub a nice bug body or wool head minnow. It is the only thread I use for my bass and saltwater flies and when I'm to lazy to change over to 6/0 thread for bream bugs, I don't hesitate to continue using the Plus. It is strong enough to cinch down mylar tubing on a 3/0 hook yet lays flat enough to tie a size 12 Hare's Ear.
