Sid

Articulated trout streamer designed and tied by Swedish Andreas Andersson. Sid is named after the funny ground sloth from the movie Ice Age - due to the similarities in head shape. The flat front head and the sharp cut edges makes this fly dive and wiggle. Andreas tied this fly on the Ahrex TP650 – 26 Degree Bent Streamer, that is designed specially for Sid, Drunk & Disorderly and other flies requiring a bend hook shank. Andreas was a vital part of the team that designed this hook.

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.
