    Are they still in the fly tying thread market? I've got a bunch of it, but I couldn't find anything about their products

    They never made the thread they sold. What they did was buy large bulk spools (like 1/2lb to 1lb spools) of thread from Danville and Gudebrod then re-spool it on the normal sized 50 yd, 100 yd, or 200 yr spool every once uses. Their 6/0 thread was Danville Flymaster, their 3/0 was Danville 3/0 monochord, their 210 denier (or Flat Waxed Nylon) was Danville Flat-waxed Nylon 210 denier, their size A was Gudebrod, and their size A monochord was Danville.
