Posts Tagged ‘Gudebrod Thread’

Rumor has it that this company will one again be making its’ tying threads and other products available…

WEL-TEC LLC purchased the assets of Gudebrod Industries LLC in 2010. WEL-TEC is manufacturing all the products that Gudebrod made in their Fishing, Craft/Specialty, and Threads Divisions. The same equipment and a few of the same people making everything the same way. We have all the Rod Building Threads including Nylon, NCP, and HT Metallics in 100yd, 1 ounce and 4oz put-ups. Bait-Rigin’ floss and rod building accesories, including Fish-Grippers and Fold-Away glasses. Our Craft area includes Artificial Sinew, Silk bead stringing and braids. Finally we have the Industrial thread division making MIL-spec threads for the aircraft industry as well as custom coated braids. Everything is Made In The USA.”

At the moment, availability is limited…the threads may be found here:

The 10/0 is available here – in limited colors (5.17.2013):

PERFORMANCE FLIES

 

Their 10/0, 8/0 and 6/0 threads  came in colors one just could not find elsewhere…

 

…Merry XMAS, Andy Baird !!! – “ hang on to your 327 spools of light grey, it may become the Chadwicks 477 of tying thread some day

Yeah, I am working on those MIDGES…

This is a fly pattern that I discovered on The Flies of Yellowstone…it is tied by the locals and, from it’s moniker, seems to have stirred things up on the Madison River…It reminds me of something I saw in a Korean bakery when I was out with the kids, the other night…I like checking out what other tiers are up to…I especially enjoy encountering new patterns that may be easily adapted to areas that I frequent…

YUM…that was good..and from reports, this guy is a yummy for the Trout…

MADISON MAULERS…done with artistic license…

For this place:

The Madison River, MT…

Materials I used for this pattern…

MADISON MAULER

HOOK: Mustad 94842 (up eye) or, Mustad 3096b #14-#22

THREAD: Kevlar in olive was mentioned..I used Gudebrod, 6/0, HEAVILY WAXED

ABDOMEN: Tying thread

THORAX: Antron, 3 colors: Yellow followed by Deep Purple (a single twist of Peacock herl eye is often used), followed by Lime Green… I used yellow Beaver, Peacock Eye Herl twisted around thread that has a thin coat of UV purple Ice Dub, followed by SLF PRISM, Caddis Green

HEAD: Tying thread…running toward messy

WEIGHT: I added 8 turns of .10 lead substitute to this # 16 hook at the abdomen…

It is reported that an argument is currently in progress over the merits of up-eye versus down-eye…I have listed both. The Madison Mauler is a Spring pattern… “This fly isparticularly useful in the seams and long slicks at the heads of pools as well as the long tail-outs”…I plan on tying up some additional Maulers ( I have a sense of what they imitate best) with a muted and dazzle thorax for use in some special locations come late February through April and will post on their effectiveness. I have no doubt they will hammer the fish, most of the patterns created around Yellowstone Park by the tiers there…usually do…
