Never tie the Klinkhammer. Need tips

I got some 200R Tiemco hooks and am trying to tie some Klinkhammers just to have around on my next trip.
Would appreciate any helpful suggestions

There is also great info there about the development of the fly and a step by step instruction on the dressing of the fly. Hope this helps.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I bet a grub hook is stronger.

Also, I do believe my dubbing is getting better and better seeing it done so well by you.

the first article I read...
THE (ARISING OF THE) KLINKHÅMER SPECIAL
I couldn't seem to find the article but after some searching found it, actually two different versions of it. The originator of the fly used larger than normal hackle for the fly to assist in floatation. Anyway from what I can tell your latest attempt is the closest one to what he designed it to be. Good work.
