Filling The Flybox #9

In this video I'm tying the Klinkhamer and it takes compartment number nine in my flybox for the year. This is a fly I avoided fishing for a long time, while everyone was singing it's praises I was concentrating my efforts elsewhere, once I finally caught up to speed though it was rarely out of my box. It's a very effective pattern and it makes a great indicator fly which is perfect for those starting out with upstream nymph. I prefer to fish it on it's own but if I'm using it as an indicator I'll tie it on a dropper, I find that I get more hookups that way than attaching my dropper onto the hook bend.
