    “Apparently people don't like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, 'Oh! Wait a minute - I was wrong.' I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you” ― Lemmy Kilmister

    Default Klinkhammer

    There are excellent variations of the KH here.

    I have the story of the Klinkhammer at home, will have to get the address, it may be of interest to you.

    Interesting tip I got recently was to turn the fly 90 degree in the jaws to tie the hackle.

    I love the fly and use numerous variations on yellows, the perfect tie for better hook-ups on teh underslung mouths.
