Andreas Andersson’s SID by Brian Wise

Swedish streamer tying guru Andreas Andersson’s articulated Sid was probably the fly which opened him up to US streamer addicts, including his spectacular deer hair work.

Our buddy and Streamer Lovefest OG Brian Wise demonstrates his version of the SID. If you want to learn from the originator then there are a couple of spots left in Andreas’ pre Lovefest streamer class on January 28.

This will be Andersson’s long awaited first visit to the world’s best streamer tying party, joining a host of streamer tying masters at Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher for another epic evening celebrating big flies, big rods and big brown trout.

He will will join the Godfather of modern streamer fishing, Kelly Galloup, the ever popular Mike Schmidt, our own streamer addicts and fly designers Chad Johnson, Steve Dally and Alex Lafkas, plus streamer video guru Brian Wise at the Lovefest proper on Saturday night. We also have some surprise guests to be unveiled over the next couple of weeks.

The Lovefest started as an afterthought almost, in 2013 but it evolved into a right of passage for series streamer tyers, with national and international icons like Kelly Galloup, Blane Chocklett, Russ Maddin, Mike Schmidt and Rich Strolis, our own streamer addicts and fly designers Chad Johnson, Steve Dally and Alex Lafkas, plus streamer video guru Brian Wise.

Cost for the Andersson class is $100 a head These classes have traditionally been over subscribed so we require full payment up front. In the event of an emergency, we will endeavor to sell your spot to another class member. In the event we resell and fill your spot, you will get a full refund. Tyers will need to bring some basic tools like vise, scissors(preferably 1 big one small) and (at least) 2 bobbins. Superglue and your favorite streamer thread would be great. Materials and hooks will be included. Call 870 435 6166 to book your spot
