Mini Sid

The movement of the fly often has a very big impact on the fly and its ability to fool the fish. The Swedish deer-hair specialist, and streamer-dude Andreas Andersson has been involved in the development of the entire Ahrex Trout Predator series, and the streamer hook with the bent (26 degree Bent Streamer) is his special design. In this video, he ties one of his signature flies "Sid” on this very hook, where the head consists of deer hair - trimmed in the shape for optimal movement in the water.

Thread: Fl. Red UTC and 200D GSP
Tail: Grey rabbitstrip with black barrings

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
