Why the Klinkhåmer works so well

I met the Klinkhammer fly inventor Hans van Klinken while fly fishing in Kuhmo. He explains why Klinkhamer is so effective fly. The first class fish finder fly has many name variations like Klinkhåmer, Klinkhamer, Klinkhammer and Klinkhåmer Special. It is imitation of a caddis larvae, and the parachute lets the fly float visible while the fish see the fly in the surface film. That makes Klinkhamer so effective fly.

In this video you’ll see:
- Why Klinkhammer fly works so well

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
