Tiemco 2487 #14 and #10  (fly shops)
 
Rainy’s Float Foam (small and medium, black)

Local sources – Dec. 2014:  Fin & Fire ($4.95), Patient Angler
 
Black hackle or Whiting 100s (#12 for small Kick-Ass) – fly shops
 
Danville Monocord, Black  (discontinued item, stock up! I also use white.)

Dan from Danville recommended the site below for more monocord.  Their main listing is for 50yd. spools of unwaxed, but Kathy can get almost anything from Danville. Order here if you want to support a small business with good customer service.
