    George The older I get, the better I was.

    I prefer the Fireline brand in differing weights. I buy it in bulk rolls from Cabelas which will save lots of money if you get into volume work.

    As far as stitches, there are 3 that you'll hear about in taxidermy. Baseball stitch, hidden stitch, and whip stitch. I prefer the whip stitch to eliminate pucking of the hide FOR ME, but again, it depends on the individual and the technique they personally prefer.

    Fireline for me too, recycle the stuff from your reals when you change it.
