I was contacted this morning by Mr. Simon Graham who runs the Pike Fly Fishing blog (http://www.pikeflyfishingarticles.blogspot.com/) with an unusual looking concoction from his vise.
” if local fisherman in Papua New Guinea could catch tuna with condoms then how hard could it be to fool a pike into taking one..”
You’ll need to take a look at the step by step tutorial on how to tie this one. Before you run out to grab a box of this material, you may want to wait to hear back on the effectiveness as the fly has yet to be tested.
This does bring to mind a tying seminar I took a few years ago hosted by Jack Dennis. We were discussing the ins and outs (intended) of Czech nymphing and how one angler had developed a killer fly using pink condoms wrapped over tungsten. I’ll be watching to see how the Durex preforms on the Nordic Pike, and if it works well, the eruption of new patterns to follow. 😉
