The Klinkhamer has made the biggest impact on river fly fishing in my lifetime. It is a universal fly, it copies everything, and nothing in particular! This pattern has an unbelievable ability is to bring fish up out of the blue, a fish fooling fly with few equals.
It is a low maintenance fly, floats superbly, even after been taken by a trout or grayling. It's also a straightforward tying exercise, even for beginners.
There are two more fast water dry fly patterns that you would not be without. Roman Moser's Balloon Caddis and my own Tape Wing Caddis, both can bring fish up in riffles, but really come into their own when fish are keyed on to caddis flies.
