"Thread: White 8/0 (olive will be used when I get it)"

Untill you get olive colored thread, you can use an olive-green magic marker to color the length of thread you are using...

Just unspool some thread over the point of the marker, then respool it and tie your flies.

You can do this right off of the bobbin, the ink smell of the marker will wear off long before your blue wing olive hits the water.

I do this in a pinch, and it works just fine. :hehe:
