Nylon is a strong, lightweight, thin, single continuous fiber and does not absorb water. It is a great material for fly tying but
you will have to search for it in other places than your local fly shop. Once you find it, you are going to have to take a little time and effort getting it ready to use. It would be nice if they sold 100% Nylon as a yarn. They may have done that in the past but every yarn that I have seen with Nylon is 50% or less. Check in your wife’s knitting for some old yarn. She might have some.
