Named for the creator of the style the Klinkhammer fly this style of tying can be deadly on the water. Hans Van Klinken developed this fly to give another way to wrap hackle around a parachute post while allowing the abdomen of the pattern to become submerged. Just like a real emerging insect that is trying to break the surface film during its break free from the water into flight. This midge variation is a great pattern during the early emergence of a midge hatch when the majority of the bugs are pushing through to the surface.
Don’t tell anybody you have this fly on point. Just say your hooking up on midge larva or something. They will never know but they will see you filling your net time and time again. Face it, if you were a fish eating midges or baetis all day and then saw a big fat juicy worm headed your way, you would eat it to. The Squirmy Wormy material used is an amazing fish catching material. The movement it provides in the water is unmatched by other worm imitations. Add a Firehole Outdoors Pink Bead and you have a solid pattern!
