Tying the Klinkhamer Special

The Klinkhamer Special needs no introduction. Developed by Hans van Klinken in the 1960s, the pattern has become known as one of the most widely used flies worldwide.

I love this pattern when fishing my home waters in South Wales, UK, and more so on the small, fast-running streams for wild brown trout. This pattern’s buoyancy, visibility and ability to bring fish up when prospecting for trout is exceptional.

In this video, I discuss the environments where I fish the pattern, the materials I use and provide a step-by-step video of its tying process.
