|The Del Brown Merkin, permit beware.|
It seems like the feather hair extension craze started by Steven Tyler that gobbled up all of the size 16 adams hackle from here to china just ended (I've seen them in Montana, which means the trend must be on the way out) and we are already facing a new dilemma as fly tiers: designer merkins. To most fly fisherman the name Merkin makes one think about the famous Del Brown permit fly. Those in the know are aware of the dirtier and slightly less fishy origin of the merkin name, a pubic wig for low-class prostitutes. Leave it to none other than a reality T.V. star (?) to bring about this highly ridiculous use of fly tying materials.
|Designer merkins, vaginas beware.|
Fortunately for fly tiers, it's hard to believe that many women that will shell out $200 to have their lady parts decked out with glued on fox hair. And more importantly, thank god this trend wasn't started by Steven Tyler.
