Great thread, great buy
Reviewer: A viewer from CLARKSTON, WA USA
In the past I tied mostly with Uni threads. Recently, I have gone to Benecchi and Gordon Griffith's threads for trout flies. I picked up a spool of Danville Flymaster in brown to tie some Serendipities, and was amazed at how strong, smooth and thin this thread goes on the hook. Uni has recently gone to 50-yard spools at the same price they used to charge for 200 yards. The Danville thread is 200 yards at a lower price, so I will definitely be stocking up on several favorite colors.
Soft for your vise, heavy in the river
Reviewer: A viewer from Soria, Soria / Spain ES
A great thread. It's really easy to tie, very soft and with natural colours, and it's almost impossible to break it even if it touches the hook point. It can be used for wet flies, but i think it's better for small dries thanks to the wax, that avoid sinking. Dark colours are great for april and september. Eggshell, yellows and cahill are perfect for 'ephemeras' in may, june, july and august. And olives are allways great, the 'joker' of your tying materials. The length it's also very good for the price and it worths each penny (in my country, euros, hehe). Once wet, the colours darken a bit, but it mantains a natural looking... and sometimes it fishes better. I bougth 11 colours... and i will repeat soon with more.
Great All Around Thread
Reviewer: A viewer from GREENVILLE, SC USA
The Danville 6/0 is a great all around thread for tying smaller trout flies and other patterns. Lays flat with minimal build up and it's easy to work with.
I really wish Danville would print the thread color on their labels like UNI does, but this is a great thread for the money!
My favorite thread
Reviewer: A viewer from West Valley City, UT US
I'm a novice and just acquired my first spool of Danville thread and I'm really impressed. I needed a spool of black in the 70 denier range and had been having a lot of breakage with the brand I was using. This stuff is strong but fine and I feel like it's really easy to control. I'll be purchasing a lot more of this stuff!
Terrific all-around thread
Reviewer: J from MA, US
This is a terrific all-around thread and a great value. I've found it great for everything from streamers to dries down to size 24. It is different from UTC threads in that it doesn't flatten out (like a mini-floss) quite like UTC, though also is easier to control to build really compact, tight heads and doesn't fray as much as UTC. If you're looking to build thread bodies, I'd look at either UTC thread or Gordon Griffith 14/0 for smaller bodies.
