Default Re: Wet fly bodies with nylon thread?

Another great fly body option is biots from the primary feathers of larger birds. I use them on alot of my flies. I don't have a picture handy, but this previous post contains some good photos (and discussion), if you're interested -

What’s a Biot?

You can easily (and quickly) fashion a smooth segmented body, or add a bit of dimension to the body based on how you wind on the biot.

I have to agree. Try tying with silk before you decide against it. For many, if not all, flies silk looks awesome when wet...
