:bugeyes: I wish my first attempts at a parachute looked like that, well done!

 

The first thing I would do is make the body longer so it progresses right up to the bend, other than that nothing wrong with em!

Very good looking fly. Agree with others, maybe a little longer body and shuck BUT that fly will catch plenty of fish. Very nice job on a great pattern. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

A piece of brown/transparent 1/8" scud back about 3/16" long makes a really effective trailing shuck on Klink-style patterns. It's pretty neutral buoyant and looks like the real thing.

One trick that i learnt at the British Fly Fair for Klinks, is to wind one turn of bare hackle stem around the post......Somehow this stops any fibres from sticking up.

 

Also.....If you want some seriously good klinks then get your hands on some of that Mirage tinsel (fine), and use it as a rib. Also add some micro krystal flash to the post.......If you tie some of these you will be laughing :hyst:

 

They work great on the chalkstreams, especially the grayling...so guess they will work for where you fish.....

 

Tightlines and smooth wraps

Hi guys!

Thanx for the advices, ill look up the tinsel knoxy!

 

Knoxy, you mean to start winding the bare stem one turn on the top of the post? then wind the hackle down the post?

 

 

MTtyer, you got a picture of a klink tied that way?

 

 

These two are from todays tying. I used Klinkhamer Extreme hooks size #16.

WOW! Nice klink, whats the ribbing material? If I'm right that photo is of a buzzer, there quite small so the imitation needs to be small aswell to get the best out of it. What size did you tie it in?
