Klinkhammer and CDC Dry Fly variation

Another little dry fly that I have had some good success with is this Klinkhammer and CDC variation. I normally use it on a long 6x or 7x leader in clear slow flowing pools.


HOOK: Partride Xtreme Klinkhammer hook or Grip14723BL
BODY: Black Hends Body Quill and DMC 4012 thread twisted together
HACKLE: Black hackle and CDC Fibres
THORAX: Peacock hearl
POST: Fl. Red Antron


  1. Yes sir thats one that will be a killer on several little waters I fish. Especially on July evenings.

  2. Simply brilliant. Nice profile and the CDC is sure to mimic movement and the Hends Body Quill looks great. I'll have to order some Hends from a shop in the overseas.

  3. I can see this fly working in the waters I fish and I love CDC.

  4. Thanks guys.

    Simon, I will share a few with you when you are back this side of the pond.

    Fly and Fin, I have tied a few flies with the body quill and like it more and more.
