Default Sex Dungeon name no longer?

Apparently, Rainy's has been getting so much flack about the name of the fly, and shops not carrying the fly because of the name, that they changed the name to just the 'Dungeon'.

Lame. My Sex Dungeons only perform at their peak when they are referred to by their proper full names, though sometimes for roll call I refer to them as Dungeon, S.

People need to lighten up, its just a name. Live and let live is my motto.

Be careful when searching the internet for this fly recipe, you can find yourself off track, for hours.

Kelly Galloup does have a way with names for his flies.
I'm a fan of the Circus Peanut myself.

The same thing happened with a fly popular to the GL Tribs called Crystal Meth. There was an uproar about the name and at least one merchant changed their name to Crystal Spawn.

Most people I know still refer to it as Crystal Meth.

Bought one, properly named, last weekend. If shops don't want to carry it, folks will shop elsewhere I suppose.

We live in a world where people like to act as if they have never had sex in a damp dark place. I bet most of the baby boomers where created there, I was.

Money is the truest vote. If they continue selling, the name is irrelevant.

I take at risk children (5-13 yrs. old) to fly shops, and fishing, and they are very curious about everything.

With media being what it is today, do we really need sexually provocative names for flies?

I take the kids fishing to show them there is a cleaner side of life.
