Pink Condoms & the Vladi Worm

The Vladi (Vladi Trzebunia) Worm is a weighted imitation of an aquatic worm. It is shown in the tutorial site below. Now, I am faced with searching out bubble gum pink condoms or perhaps lime green ones as well. Never paid much attention to the colorized versions so this will be an interesting search. I wonder if there are alternative materials? Note the one important tip the author gives on leaving the condom rolled up (as it comes out of the wrapper) and then cutting it into halves/quarters, then unrolling it. He didn’t mention lubed/non-lubed. The ‘fly’ looks much more enticing than a San Juan Worm, yet I wonder if this is yet another example of how silly fisherman are in following all manner of unique/obsessive edicts from promoters of the latest and greatest.     http://www.flyguysoutfitting.com/vladiworm.html

    The guys that I talk to who are using this nymph as an anchor on their long line rigs are absolutely cleaning house with it!

    Thank you, Sy. All kidding aside, it is a great looking pattern and definitely appears far superior to the San Juan Worm.

    The pink condom is no joke and the finished fly looks and fishes great. The pink condoms I use are made by Crown and it really an amazing material. Like its creater, Vladi, I use the worm as an anchor fly to get my dropper fly down. It’s a very effective technique and much more fun than adding weight to the line.

    Try it!
