If Klinkhammers are not a classic they should be. These are tied with the old guy hi-vis yellow post.

C16T,

 

It seems like a very popular fly in Europe that has been embraced here, too. Great design!

 

You tied them well. Ever try it with yellow CDC tufts instead of poly?

 

When I tie a high-vis post, it's yellow for me, too - easiest to see. Other like orange or - gulp - pink, too. During low light, I like black or very dark dun - the most visible of all!

 

Hope you're well.

 

Than for posting on the dry page.

 

Dale

They look deadly, & will catch just about anywhere.
