Sand Fly

This sand fly imitation is one of two that are listed in John Reid's Clyde Style flies. It's a great fly for early to mid season fishing and well worth having in your box. John Reid's book is available here:​
Robert C Sharp's books "Let's Fish the Clyde" & " Let's Fish Again" are currently very difficult to come by.

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.
