A Vladi Worm of course! Developed by Poland’s Vladi Trzebunia this worm imitation works awesome as an anchor fly when using a multi-fly Czech/Polish nymphing rig.
Ok, this has to be one of the most interesting flies I’ve every seen. I know fly tiers are a resourceful bunch, picking up road kill, shopping at craft stores, making flies out of pipe cleaners (that’s another story) but condoms as a fly tying material?
Once you get over the fact that this trout fly pattern is made from a condom you’ll realize it is a pretty clever design and well suited to High Sticking or Euro style nymphing. Here are a few reasons why:
This fly just looks like something good to eat. If I were a big fat brown trout and getting hungry – I’d eat it! It’s kind of like a Snickers Bar, and who doesn’t like a Snickers. This ‘fly’ flat out catches trout like nobody’s business just like the Squirmy Wormy.
