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.
