Hook: Partridge Klinkhamer X-treme #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 white
Body: Fly-Rite #18 Rusty Orange
Thorax: Peacock
Wingpost: Poly yarn
Wing: Whiting Bronze

Time to tie up a row or two of the Klinkhamer (a good article about it here), a good patter for trout or grayling. The original pattern has peacock for thorax, but I also tie up with dubbing in different colors.


Other variants:


Dust Broom Colors Knapek Midge Pupae #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Blaock
Tail: Mallard Flank
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly Rust
Rib: Sybai Holgraphic Black
Thorax: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly Rust
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
Wing Post: Dust Broom in different colors

I always test out different combination, and again today: the dust broom have got some very long and light fibers that needed to be tested out in all color combination to see how they come together.

Pink: together:

Thread: UNI Trico 17/0
Body: Hends Superfine
Thorax: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly Rust
Wing: Wapsi Polypropylene, Whiting Hackle

Another one for a swap targeting Caenis. This time a parachute emerger  on one of my favorite tiny hooks: the gamakatsu C12-BM, great big eye that really helps when tying it on a 7x tippet.
