The Story

A wonderfully designed fly, originated by Hans van Klinken, the Klinkhammer is a dry fly designed to hang down in the film imitating an insect that's trying to emerge. The para-post makes it visible and the different versions allow you to fish this fly very effectively during the early stage of many hatches. A great tip is to apply floatant freely to the top above the hackle of the fly but leave the rear third of the body dry, so it absorbs water and hangs even further down into the water.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New favorite The Klinkhammer is a great fly for a dry/dropper combo. It floats well, is visible to my almost 60 year eyes and fish like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Fly I was i troduced fo rhe Klinkhammer while fishing in Europe. The emerged aspect of this fly allows it to work universally in all kinds of water. The large parachute is a bonus. Orvis has the best tied Klinkhammers available, even better than the ones I tie.
