Well, it was darning thread for British uniforms, so if there ever was one made it would be pretty pricey.

Re: The Fly Fishing Bible of Nymphing

I also spent part of my weekend researching euro nymph fly rods. They range in price from around $170 to $950 for the Sage ESN euro nymph fly rod. Paul Gaskell told me in his videos he is using Marryat's Tactical Pro Nymph Special, 10ft 3 weight. https://www.tacticalflyfisher.com/marryat-tactical-p...

Re: Permanent Marker Pens - Does anyone use them on hackle?

I have used them for years, before Allen published his book. Joe Fox told me that Mary used them on quill bodies. I have used them on quill bodies and horse hair.

I have used them on hackle but the results were not great. It's something I only pursue using them when I'm messing around.
