It is a good bet that most fly tiers would agree that one of the most important ingredients in any fly would have to be the thread. Given the wide variety of different threads available to tiers today, it is hard to imagine a time when good thread was hard to find. There was a time when fly tiers relied on common sewing thread to tie their flies. If you have ever experimented with a spool of thread from your wife's sewing basket you know what these tiers were up against.
