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.

Aquatic Worm for Fly Fishing (an option between the San Juan Worm & Finding pink condoms at a porn shop or titty bar restroom)

The standard San Juan Worm in red or brown often works well. I have the recipe for the Vladi Worm (Pink Condom Worm) in my archives as well (query Vladi Condom Worm in search box). But, I know from personal experience and I acknowledge that in certain parts of the world you can probably find pink, red or lime green condoms with ease. Where I live the typical condom is a standard off white latex color. In titty bars there are machines in he restrooms (I have this on good authority) that dispense colorful condoms. Also, I have been told or come to know that porn shops have varied colors of condoms in not only pink, but red and green. So, unless you can walk into your local pharmacy or Walgreens and buy pink condoms you are going to have to enter the world of poles, dollar bills, disco balls, leering men, glory holes etc. to acquire the correctly colored condom…perhaps they can be ordered via mail.

Excuse me ladies, ah can you tell me where the pink condoms are?

To the point, the above pattern combines the brown and red micro chenille into a nice looking worm pattern. Tied similar to the ordinary San Juan Worm, this patter combines two colors and the attractor color of the clitellum:          (http://urbanext.illinois.edu/worms/anatomy/anatomy4.html

     What’s an Aquatic Worm?

“Let’s cut through the BS, learn about aquatic worms, and see how and when to use them to optimize your fishing success.  For the biologic Latin geeks out there, aquatic worms (hereafter just referred to just as “worms”) are members of the phylum Annelida (Annelids) and the Class Oligochaeta (Oligochaetes).  To put it simply, aquatic worms are just a water-breathing version of an earthworm.  Put an earthworm in the water, it drowns.;  Put an aquatic worm in the dirt, and it suffocates.  Water breathing worms live in just about every trout stream; it’s just a question of whether they exist in sufficient numbers to be a significant trout food.  If they do, you should use flies which imitate them!”
