Threads used for fly tying
Bit of an odd one for you guys, maybe you’ve seen this question in the past either on here or other forums.
Thread used for fly tying. This is a unique diameter thread that seems to be very hard to come by in bulk cones.
I’m looking for a multi-filament nylon thread in Tex No. 5-7… seems to be like hens teeth finding a manufacturer for this. It does exist however, I see it throughout the country in fly fishing shops etc.
If anyone would be interesting in chatting, I’ve got open ears.
Thank you for your time.
You can buy Tex 8 monofilament from Wawak.com
Monofilament is a very situational “thread” for fly tying. It is used but, it’s not the same as multi-filament nylon which is what I’m after.
Holland Thread Company made pure silk dye thread. It's a beautiful thin yet strong thread. I understand it is use on fly rods. The colors are gorgeous. They have been out of business for years. I purchased mine at a flea market and use it on garments. It's a very fine thread and adds character to garments. The sheen is very visible. Saw this on ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/374442651878?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110018%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.COMPLISTINGS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D244200%26meid%3Dd356dca6b6724bd7ac69ab39d3238b3a%26pid%3D101196%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D313618960982%26itm%3D374442651878%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DItemStripV101HighAdFeeWithCompV3Ranker&_trksid=p2047675.c101196.m2219&amdata=cksum%3A374442651878d356dca6b6724bd7ac69ab39d3238b3a%7Cenc%3AAQAHAAABAMiCh7AmjLRk7DuPR3%252F9UdvQeXESgPHS%252FZurpFMzoVKwNl9G8%252B1BtUpgKFXvtmFgNbUEMY5TDM4otel8ML238YL2iJPB%252BBGV4adc2wCOcRQGGyttTojpQZ%252Be8%252BRqSJjliMJs9OBuspxFjEDqm8ZP7ruj9byanx7Ys3kWaao4ZoGKWlJbrMTtds2HPjACTvN3Q8y2ch8oYui0NduOOcEaaqzmEC1M%252Fok4nUUg8n%252FimQD6o8VwErOfSCnrj%252B7T2279Sw8sqrUGHogSbtKn%252F3ipKS%252BipyP%252Bb9FlbVAs%252BwWLWJ51KyrNafEWaQGzY5kHWJadB5F%252BLpehRJytT7O0HoBF8VE%253D%7Campid%3APL_CLK%7Cclp%3A2047675
Hopefully you can find it cheaper. Good luck.
