Default Re: Tying the Early Season Klinkhammer Special

Thanks Flityer, but to make it more expanding, you can use any material for the bodies, even add a tail in the middle while will look normal in the water but give the effect it is much smaller. CDC for a post also. You can do whatever you want to this fly. I use the 200R hook and bent it a little bit behind the eye.
Try this with BIOT, cool looking fly.

A little something I do when tying the hackle around the post, is once i have wrapped it around, I put a little Zap-A-Gap on the tying thread and wrap around the post and hackle with the glue coated thread. Just a little.
Then I make the head and whip finish.
Makes the fly a little more bullet proof.
