Here's just a cool quick and dirty steelhead fly that'll get the job done. Many shank style intruder flies these days are very overly complex and difficult to tie. Jeff Hickman's Sid Fishes isn't one of those. Simplicity is key with this one. What's truly nice also is that all the materials are easy to find and readily available. With a name like Sid Fishes I attempted to keep the Sex Pistols/punk rock theme alive in this quick edit. Anyway, here is the material list for SID FISHES!

Shank: Tiemco 9395 #2
Connection: Econoflex Wire, Fine
Butt: Ice Dub, UV Fluorescent Hot Pink
Rear Collar: Polar Chenille, UV Fluorescent Fuschia

Front Body: Ice Dub, Purple
Front Collar: Guinea, Purple

Thanks for checking it out!
