Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) - Dry Fly

Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) created by Hans Van Klinken.

Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts)

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.

The Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) is an incredible fish catching fly devised by the innovative Dutch fly tyer Hans Van Klinken for trout and grayling. When on a course with Oliver Edwards he said that this fly should be kept in the car glove boxe next to your pack of emergency condoms....... this fly is absolutely incredible, even when fish asre not taking on the surface this fly is known to 'lift' fish.The fly hangs down in the water supported by the parachute hackle. Due to to body of the pupa sitting under the surface while the hackle and wing are on the surface it represents an emerging caddis fly. The Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) is tied with CDC on the post. The Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) is effective on everywhere from English chalk streams to rivers world-wide. At The Essential Fly we tweaked the standard white posted klinkhammer to devise this high visibility variant of the Klinkhammer Olive (Hi Vis Posts) with black and luminous yellow posts.

Great for the job.

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!
