Condom worm

 
tied by troutguy
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: not available Panfish, Trout,
Recommended Region: not available Northeast US, Southeast US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies, Worms,
Material List:
Yellow condom, brownish red thread and softex. Weigh with dental lead sheet.
Tying Instructions: I saw this in a magazine and went ewwwwww. They use red condoms to tie worms. If you are lucky you have sheets of dental lead stashed away like me from a friendly detist. Whe they used to xray using film each film had a thin lead sheet. Cut a pie shaped piece and wrap on hook and cover with brownish thread (or other color, the color showes through). Tie in a strip of condom and twist before wrapping on hook to segment. Cover with Softex. This simple fly will show you some amazing results.
