danville thread


deeky

Recommended Posts

I have some Danville thread that actually came in an old jig tying kit that has been laying around forever. I have been using it for big bass bugs, particularly for spinning. It is a two strand twist and is strong. All the label says is "Danville Tying Thread, 50 yds." I'm almost out and would like to find some more. Any ideas on what I should be looking for? I was thinking the Flymaster Plus sounds close. Thanks for the help.

Fly Master Plus would be an excellent choice. I've used it for spinning deer hair and it works well. It would be my first choice. Second choice would be Kevlar (some say its hard on bobbins or tht it will cut the hair) and third would be Uni-thread 3/0. Uni makes great threads; I simply have no experience with anything from them heavier than 6/0.

Stick this phrase into a google search box and you will find a size vs. strength comparison of many threads.:

deeky, I don't know if if it is what you are looking for but Cabela's carries some danville threads.

I am just starting to atempt tying fly's and have been looking at the 36 peice body kit Cabela's has for $20. Can anyone give me an opion as to weather it would be a good way to started or not? For me it is a 90 mile drive to the nearest place I have found that carries anything for teying.

Deeky,

I see you are in Alex. If you get to St. Cloud, stop in at Sportsman's Warehouse, they carry Danville & UNI products.

Good tying

I'd piece by piece a fly tying kit instead of a getting a deal. I don't think buying a bunch of stuff you may not even use is worth it.

I've been into the SW in both St. Cloud and Sioux Falls and haven't found any heavy stuff like this, it's all beein 6/0 or lighter. It was interesting to see the difference in products available between the two stores. Same amount, different things.

I think I'm going to order some of the Flymaster Plus and some Kevlar. They're not too bad, and then I can try and compare.

Thanks for the help.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
