Thorne Bros Spooling

9 posts in this topic

After I go get my new Curado today from Cabelas I am going to go to Thorne Bros tomorrow to get it spooled up with some line. Do you guys at Thorne spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard or do I just buy a 150 or 300 yard spool and you spool it?

Thanks for the help.

They spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard. If I remember right its one price for the mono backing and then another for the Tuf Line or whatever your having put on.

I was just looking around on the thorne bros HSOforum for the stealth florocarbon leaders but couldn't find them. Do they still stock them in the store? I will be making a run over there about 230 or 3 today to get all spooled up and I need a few of those leaders.

Thanks,

Ryan

I think they have them in the store, if not the Thorne fluoro leaders are a good leader too. 80 & 130 test, something like $4 a piece.

thorne makes their own leaders. they do not carry stealth. the difference between a stealth leader and the ones at thorne are zero beside the name. they both use the same snaps, the same flouro leader materials, and components. brett has been makin them there for a long time and they are put together very well.

Cool, thanks for the clarification!

I've only used the Thorne leaders so I'd never really looked to see what else is there! No need to, as the Thorne leaders are great.

if you decide to get them, be sure to grab the 130# ones. they will help you decide there too, but you dont wanna accidentally grab the 80# ones. i am still using a bunch of mine from three years ago. just needed to change the snaps. awesome leaders.

The Thorne fluoro leaders are crimped only where the Stealth ones are both crimped and tied. They're both excellent fluoro leaders and the only two that I would be willing to put on the end of my line. I've been using the Stealth ones for a couple years now with nothing but great things to say about them.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
