Hmmm! Looks like more research is needed, as well as a few more examples to study.
Incidentally, I’ve just pulled more of the white (silk?) line off and there it’s a dark green thinner line under that.

That would probably be the backing! So was the top layer fly line?

I think it must be. Certainly matches fly line in photos of Hardy fly reels of a similar period.
