Fly Tying Thread Info

Any of you guys know of a medium gray nylon thread (6/0, 3/0, 210, whatever) with black specks in it?

MJC,

The only thread I know of like this is a rod wrapping thread made by Gudebrod. It is actually silver with black but looks gey and black. It only comes in size 'C', which is way too big for fly tying, unless you are tying on #8/0 hooks.

Maybe DMC Embroidery Thread would work?

I have some DMC Embroidery Thread that is black with gold wire twisted through it so it looks like black and gold speckled thread. It's a double strand thread that can easily be separated into single strands that are still black & gold. The single strand may be too heavy for tying small flies but would work for larger flies, perhaps #12 hook or larger. Maybe they have a color similar to what you are looking for?

I do believe it's rod thread

I'll agree on this one. I used to tie up alot of rods when I was younger. Sounds like some of the newer guidebrod and some older brands (can't remember the name).

Makes an interesting head. But hard to find in small thread size.
