Thread: Klinkhammer

    Default Klinkhammer

    Sorry, but admin has asked me which account I'd like to keep. So I am having to let braveheart go and since I will no longer have control over my sbs's I have no choice but to delete them.
    However these sbs's and many more are available, free, on ukflydressing and the wild fishing forums.

    Hi scotfly,
    What hooks do you use for your Klinks?

    In the step by step I've used a Kamasan B200R. You can also use the Kamasan B100 and there is the partridge Klinkammer and Klinhammer extreme hooks.

    All new photos for this one.
    I have also changed the hook used in the original step by step and I have slightly changed the way I tie it.

    Which way round do you ite in the Hackle - it looks concave (dull) side down? According to Oliver Edwards apparently Hans VK reckons that part of the secret of this fly is to tie it with the shiny side down (ie concave up). Ive started tying mine like this now and he is correct that the fly sits lower in the film, as its only supposed to be the wing post that is greased up and above the water.

    Do you think it makes a difference?

    I don't really think it would make a difference at all but try tying the klink both ways and see which klink catches more fish or what one works better.

    Hi Scot,

    nice fly. I use the hackle shine side down. It ends up being more surface supporting the fly. However, I find it much more important for your catch rate that the abdomen of the fly has a nice conical shape and is segmented slightly. The fish does not only see the body hanging off the surface, it also sees the mirror image of it in the water film. Here's my steps. They are a bit modified from what is seen on my website. It works a treat. Very durable method. If you want you get a little trailing shuck as a free bonus so to say. Depending on the dubbing you choose you get verious results in the form of the body of course.

    1. Fix thread on hook and tie in wingpost
    2. Wind the thread from the wingpost to the bend and back to the wingpost
    3. apply some head cement to the body
    4. Dub the thread and make sure the material is already conical on the thread. More at the top and than gradually lesser material. This wayyou get the conical body all by itself without trouble. Dub the body starting at the wingpost down to the bend. (reversed so to say)
    5. wind the thread 3 or 4 times on one spot at the end of the body close to the bend and pick out the remeinder dubbing so it forms a tail (if you want - you can also snip that off of course)
    6. rib the body going from the hook bend to the wingpost
    7. Tie in hackle
    8. Tie in peacock herl
    9. wind herl around the thread and tie the thorax
    10. wind hackle around post
    11. fix the hackle with thread around the wingpost
    12. whip finish and

    done
    Cheers & tight lines,
    Thomas

    may the trout be with you .....

    Sorry I should have stated that in the tying.
    I know it doesn't look like it, but that's more down to the hackle, but it is tied in concave (dull) side up. I think the picture in step 10 shows it best.

    TZ. Neat way of tying the body, I'll have to try a few like that. Thanks.

    Thanks. I actually do a lot of patterns like that know. Much easier and better. Better imitation and much sturdier fly. To really see the benefit look at your fly against the sky. The ribbing starts to show than.
