This is the light olive version of Hans Van Klinken's famous fly pattern. Although primarily invented as a grayling fly, the Klinkhåmer Special has become one of the world’s best trout flies. The Klinkhammer is perfect for fishing on both freestone and chalkstream rivers as a single fly or as part of a "Klink an Dink" duo rig.
When no fish are showing the Klinkhammer special is the perfect searching pattern. The Klinkhammer is designed so that the body sinks below the water surface, whilst the thorax is kept suspended in the surface film by the parachute style cock hackle. The perfect imitation of a emerging insect.
All Klinkhammers are dressed on Daiichi Klinkhammer hooks using:
Fly Rite dubbings and Genetic Cock Hackles
