Straight eye, modified shank with elbow near eye, black nickel finish. This hook is now exactly as designed by Hans van Klinken; the extra bend at the eye is designed to ensure that wing and thorax are positioned and proportioned to the original pattern. The thorax should be both in front and behind the wing. Hans ties the thorax exactly to the bend. This allows fishing the fly even deeper. Uses: Klinkhamer Special.

Just bought these hooks recently and they are great to tie on. Not only Klinkhamer patterns, but I have tied hackle stacker emergers and some caddis nymphs on them as well. The hook design makes it so easy to attach the post for the parachute hackle. It also aids in tying the whip finish to the post to end the fly. If you tie Klinkhamers or if you are thinking about learning to tie them this is the hook for you.
