Interesting videos...

Not sure who produced these entomology videos, but they are well done. I came accross them on Moldy Chum. The videos feature the life cycle of caddisflies and mayflies.

Tying the CDC Klinkhammer

Klinkhammer Special

This is a twist on the original Klinkhammer Special- the world famous fly created by Hans van Klinken. 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.

Happy Tying
