Hans van Klinken

After a 35-year career, Hans van Klinken left his position as Commander of the Royal Dutch Army Gunnery School 7 years ago. During his working life Hans got himself involved in fly fishing and fly tying, outdoor and travel journalism, publishing, teaching and education. His retirement allowed him to now fully commit to the world of fly fishing, fly tying and environmental issues related. Hans takes part in and organises educational programs and workshops for fly tyers all over the world. He has written for many international club and fly fishing magazines as well as contributing to several fly fishing books. His contribution to the fly tying industry is remarkable and priceless. Many of his flies are used all over the world. Most famous is his Klinkhåmer Special parachute fly.
