Gone back to basic's with this one,not a synthetic in sight. My last klink was designed to sit ultra low in the film that's why it had a weighted body and upward's hackle. Hope you enjoy it,was a nice fly to tie.:thumbs:

My old art/tech teacher used to say to me "simplicity is the essence of all good design" when my proposed piece of furniture got just too complicated and the same goes for trout flies. This one fills the bill 100%

Very nice indeed, Matt. Just the one minor niggle :D The hackle is just a little too short. Look again at the proportions of Mr Van Klinken's tying...

The rest is spot on. I particularly like the body.

Thank's Rob,the body is Wapsi Ozark Turkey Tail Cinnamon Tip. Like somebody else commented further back on the thread "sometime's simple is better".
