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.
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.
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.
This is my preferred thread for tying saltwater flies. The thread is strong and lies flat -- helps in making great shaped heads. The color selection includes all of the necessary ones and some new colors that I am going to try.
