Cord bargain
« on: December 04, 2017, 05:28:54 PM »
   I tagged along with my wife this weekend to Charlotte and Gastonia NC. One of her normal stops is the Long Creek Mills thread factory. She sews and makes quilts and uses lots of thread.  These people make thread for many of the major sewing/fabric companies and they sell partial rolls and such are real bargains. I never thought about them having nylon cord and monofilament/fishing line.

   I found this big ball of what looks like #18 nylon cord like used on construction projects to lay off lots and such and also for making catfish lines. It may be a little small for some of our catfish but should hold up to a 30-35 lb fish if tied to a good limber limb. Would be perfect for the leads on a trotline. I don't know how much is there but looks like several miles. I think a 100 yard roll typically sells for over $3 (I see a 77 yard roll on Amazon for about $5).

    I figure I should have a lifetime supply and this roll cost me $6. I saw what looked like 8-10 lb rolls of about 4-6 lb test monofilament fishing line (used for invisible thread) for about 10.

    Anyway, if any of you sew or have spouses (How is that for political correctness!!!) who sew and you find yourself near Gastonia NC look these guys up. http://longcreekmills.com/location.html

    They even have things there for hairy legged hardtails.
