Ze Klingon-Moth/Vine Hopper Fly
The Ze Klingon fishing fly is such a neat wee fly; Its unique somewhat spacey name was spawned by a punk rock /rockabilly band/bunch of really Mad & Mental! Irish mates that our founder used to drive around Europe in his black and white, cow-painted van called Daisy. They were called The Klingonz. So this fly is a tribute to them. Bless. Plus, it catches heaps of wary NZ trout- How remarkable- History, eh!
However, the design is from years of fieldwork here on the south Island of New Zealand. Getting up at dawn and Watching and catching trout sipping shipwrecked fluffy moths early morning after becoming stranded and stuck during the night, especially in backwaters and in then on mid-summer days when on missions in the north of the South Island when and where the trout devour vine hoppers (small moth-type things) t daily off the surface in certain areas. And so the Ze Klingon was born to imitate the multitude of these open fan-winged delicate surface-stranged insects. This fly will also be easily taken as an adult caddis fly.
It's easy to see due to the unique little white fluffy CDC duck feather sightpost incorporated within its design. It has spotted guinea fowl wings that sit open like the stuck naturals on the surface, and a fine spindly underbody hides the hook shaft. A light fly that lands gently even if the person casting casts badly. But hey, are we not all perfect?
Remember, Having more than one good fly in the correct size is always good. So, the more significant the pack, the better; that way, you will have a few staple flies doubled and trebled up in the pack selection.
As we know, there's nothing worse than losing the only fly you have that works.
