Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) created by Hans Van Klinken.
This is definitely an essential fly. This excellent fish-catching fly was devised by the innovative Dutch fly-tyer Hans Van Klinken. The fly, which hangs down in the water supported by the parachute hackle,could be classed as an emerger, an aquatic insect on the point of hatching; whatever the classification, the trout certainly find it extremely attractive. It has been effective on English chalk streams for both trout and grayling. The hackle has floatant applied with the body taking in water so that it sits low as an emerger.

Small, fast mountain streams with a lot of glint being thrown off the surface by the sun - we are talking about the Pyrenees. Every aid to watching the fly is welcome. These are big, robust and very very visible. I got my leg pulled for using such "oversized" flies for dainty mountain trout - but the last time I went back tto one of the streams I noticed another fly fisherman had tied an "oversized" fly just like the ones I had purchased from Essential Fly. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
Well tied flies on quality hooks
cheers Colin, glad you like them.
