Tying The Tube Klingon

The Klingon is a fly of my own “invention”. It was originally tied to represent a pretty standard belly flap teaser with a pink rubber squid pulled down over it. This is the preferred tease for most fly fishing for sailfish. This fly made its debut at the Broome sailfish comp in 1996 and Danny O’Sullivan named it. Its a now a very popular sailfish fly world wide. My preferred tie is as a tube fly. This allows you to use the most appropriate hooks and hook arrangement and it also means you don’t have valuable flies rusting away between trips.

This tube holder is made from a length of 2.2mm brass rod bent at 90 degrees and which sit in the jaw slot of my Dyna King vice.
