Cody Coyote
Great Thread   (from prior model)
Pros: Wide range of colors
Comments: Like most tyers, I've tried a wide range of threads but my favorite remains Ultra Thread. My local shops carry some, but not all colors and sizes so I was pleased to find everything I need at FishUSA and bought myself a "lifetime" supply. Great product, works best if you match the thread size to your fly sizes. Lays flat or you can spin it for a narrower look.
