This is our signature fly and it represents an emerging caddis larva. The original klinkhamer pattern was invented by a Dutch flyfisherman and flytier, Hans Van Klinken in 1984  along the Glomma River in Norway. The fly is tied onto a scud hook which submerges below the surface but is held up by a  parachute hackle and floatable wingpost.  It is and extremely successful and versatile fly and can be used in conjunction with a nymph suspended from the bend of the hook; New Zealand style. The Blinghamer variation has lots of triggers including a bright red butt, gold-plated hook and pink parachute hackle.
