Gut, substitutes and a twisting tool
#1
We're lucky that John, Aaron, and others can provide us with real twisted gut for classics, sized to what we're tying. For folks who aren't so lucky, or beginners that may want to twist their own gut "sub," the links below are a good start:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_uxpiFWZ0s - Monofilament (Davie McPhail, with a twister)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltxSfPBQ5Ig - Monofilament (gut "sub")

 - It can be found on Amazon and other on-line retailers, including embroidery suppliers

Here is Marvin Nolte's take on gut sub. He used this for his Grainger Collection.

Another gut sub material. Strong so good for fishing.

Bill,

Thanks for the additional links.  Trying to make sure that there is information here for any new folks that drop by and decide to join our group.

The correct color for the Coats and Clark thread is natural.
