Durex condom Pike streamer

About a month ago I read an article from the WAtoday.com.au which said that despite Australia's best efforts to supply safe-sex aids to AIDS-ravaged Papua New Guinea, there's no stopping local creativity in finding unusual uses for condoms. Local fisherman cut them up for lures, and women find the lubricant good for their hair and beauty regime.

It’s a fact that pike can be fooled into taking all manner of materials found on lures and flies, if presented to them correctly. It was only a few years back when I was in Russia that I witnessed a bloke catch a pike with just tin foil molded onto his hook. Which got me thinking 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..

So I’ve come up with the Durex condom pike streamer.


Not that I think you’ll want to tie one but here’s a step by step tutorial


Tie a small clump of mullet brown SF Flash blend onto the back of the hook


Add the condom next over the SF Flash blend. I used an extra ribbed one here


I then added 6 Peacock plumes for lateral lines


Next, palmer black and red hackle feathers on, & add stick on eyes and cover with clear resin.

That's ridiculous. You could also inflate it and use it as a popper.
