Fly Tying, Porn Shops & the Worm

I have touched upon this before when I highlighted how to tie a version of the Vladi Worm using a Pink Condom. At the time, I remarked that it was hard to find a pink condom without walking into a porn arcade and perusing the lubes, toys, etc. and maybe having to sort through the color offerings of available condoms. Mail order options seemed limited and sketchy.

Earlier today, I was answering a comment question about the materials make up of a fly pattern. I recalled I had purchased a nice material from Performance Flies in Ohio. I went to PF to find the link to the materials section for the commenter. While doing so, I noticed that Performance Flies now offers Pink Condoms for the Vladi Worm. No more walking into the porn arcade for pink condoms.

The weighted Vladi Worm is a great dredging pattern to get down and perhaps take another pattern deeper.
