Hans Van Klinken Patterns
We are absolutely delighted to offer Hans van Klinken flies exclusively here. We are indeed proud that Hans chose The Essential Fly as his exclusive and trusted manufacturer of his highly regarded flies. You can only get Hans van Klinken flies from The Essential Fly!
We have had the pleasure of fishing these flies with Hans on a few occasions now and can assure you these are winning flies. What more would you expect from the Master himself?
However when it came to manufacturing the range, we worked very closely with Hans to ensure these are to his very high standards. So you can be assured that these flies have been approved by the man himself! Look out for the badge 'approved by Hans'!
Initially we have launched the Once and Away, Parapoly Sedge, Caseless Caddis and Leadhead 2.0 Peeping Caddis which are amazing flies. They are available as loose flies or as complete collections. This range will grown in time as we release other patterns. But we could not leave out the famous Klinkhamer of course from this department. The Klinkhamers here are our flies designed around the style developed by the great Dutch fly tyer Hans Van Klinken.
We sincerely hope you enjoy fishing with these flies and they are as lucky for you as they are for Hans (not that he is a top angler as well as a fly tyer of course!)
