I don't do to much tying but when I try to bend hooks I break them. Even taking the barb down I break the point. I just buy them now and save yelling at the fly for having cheap hooks! I don't know why more American fishermen don't fish this fly, maybe they just haven't been exposed to it.

I fish the KlinkHamer , I use a size 14 Tan KlinkHamer, Red Game Hackle, Use very fine mono on the Body for rib , it keeps body fraying after many fish. white post. great fly for fishing NZ (Klink n Dink). It is a fly that imitates an Emerging Caddis .

Some Rivers like the Derby Wye over here in the UK , they are not allowed as its DRY FLY ONLY ! No Emergers.

My best results are from a size 14 pheasant tail CDC. I fish dries a lot and found this fly watching a Oliver Edwards video on you tube. It is now my go to fly. I have got a number of sizes and colors in this pattern. I have been telling my buddies and others like this forum about this fly, great producer!

I was thinking of tying some up to use as crippled mayfly emergers. I figure a size 14 or 16 light wire scud hook, brown antron or pheasant tail abdomen, and cream dubbing on hot orange or chartreuse thread thorax might make a nice sulphur emerger, or the same thing with a fluorescent yellow or chartreuse thorax might make a nice attractor.
