I use white veevus GSP thread more than anything else as the majority of it gets covered by materials to make the fly. I have a bunch of sharpies to either blend the final wraps or to make a hot spot (red, florescent orange, chartreuse). I've not seen any fading during fishing the flies, but like already alluded to, I will likely lose a fly way before any noticeable loss in color.
Exactly my thoughts. I don't mind taking risks with my flies casting them near to the bank or trees and losing a few on an outing. Makes more room in my box for tying more.
