This is a twist on the original Klinkhammer Special. Both the post and hackle are made from CDC. This pattern sits nicely on the water’s surface. The CDC hackle undulates and adds movement to the fly. The black color scheme works well in mid to late summer when an increasing number of terrestrial insects find their way onto the water’s surface.
