Threads used for fly tying

Smuggler87 | Posted in Fiber Arts on


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

    Hello IN2,

    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.
