Sticky or otherwise inclined to form clots or clods, as in ‘claggy mud’.  A suitably cloying, clotty, cloddy word.  OED suggests it could be of Scandinavian origin, comparing it with a Danish word for ‘sticky mud’, klag.   

Given all the rain we’ve had, my next weeding session in the garden will leave me with well clagged boots.
