These Gudebrod 10/0 Threads (45 denier) are no longer produced. I was able to obtain them from Chris Helm of Whitetail Fly Tieing Supplies who purchased the remaining spools when Gudebrod discontinued the product. They are dynamite for small fly and midge patterns where unwanted thread bulk is a primary consideration. Ed Engle, author of "Tying Small Flies" wrote "It's a true midge thread, wonderful to tie with. My life is changed."




Giorgio Benecchi Iridescent Threads
New Colors: Blue Peacock, Yellow, Lilac, Olive Rainbow, Orange, and Violet



"FLASH NYMPH DUBBING"
A new nymph blend of alpaca fibers and UV flash. The coarseness of this dubbing makes it suitable for tying buggy flies while the flash fibers lend a subtle glint to any pattern.

"Flash Larva" (Rusty-Orange):



NEW from Giorgio Benecchi Products: Iridescent Thread




NEW: Jack Mickievicz's POLYTEK
Super Fine Poly Dry Fly Dubbing



NEW: Hends Products PATINA TINSEL
This new product from Hends is a matte tinsel -- less flashy than typical mylar tinsels. It lends subtle flash as a body, ribbing, and wingcase material and is ideal for patterns fished in low, clear water conditions and for highly pressured fisheries. It is available in 9 colors.






NEW: Tungsten Wire



The NEW tungsten wire can be used to rib and to weight fly bodies. It can be used with a bobbin to wrap tapered tungsten underbodies on nymphs, especially mikronymphs and midges. It is available in both Fine and XFine gauges.

NEW: Tungsten Teardrops



Tungsten Teardrops are easily slipped around the bend of a hook, add substantial weight to a pattern, and can be used with or without beadheads. They can be applied to both straight and curved-shank hooks. The 'teardrop' or tapered shape of these slotted weights suggests a nymph profile.
They are available in both gold and black nickel.



Coq de Leon Feather Packs
As an alternative to the more costly saddles, these hand-picked packs include 12 shorter spade feathers & 12 longer saddle feathers. The speckled, glassy, and durable barbs from these Coq birds are ideal for both nymph and dry fly tailing. Natural & Dyed colors.
