Word has it that Gudebrod is back in business!
I understand the employees purchased the equipment and will be back in production soon, if not already. They will operate under the name Wel-Tec.

Years ago the the flyfishing show in Charlotte was combined with a rod building show. I strolled past the Gudebrod booth in the rod builders area and asked why he had no tying stuff. He said no one had asked and opened a lower cabinet and told me to help myself. They had some neat stuff I nabbed like lead core metallic braid thread and fuzzy thread to duplicate dubbed or dubbing looped bodies.

Yeah, I remember reading that someone had bought the Gudebrod name, so now, more confusion in the market. I'll have to look for Wel-Tec products.

I don't think that they make the tying thread anymore. A few years ago a friend of mine from Arkansas gave me a spool of Gudebrod 8/0 that he said was equal or better than Bennici 12/0.
The break point was so bad that I pitched the spool.
They do make the best rod building thread IMHO.
