Meet the Feather Bender!

Come along to our Open Weekend in September and meet the Feather Bender himself, Mr Barry Ord Clarke! Barry Ord Clarke will be signing new copies of his book and tying all weekend on the Fly Tyres Row. As an added bonus, if you buy his book at our Open Weekend, you will be entered into a prize draw to win all the flies that he ties during the event!

The Feather Bender Techniques is a fresh take on Fly Tying Books, more than just a set of ingredients and instructions by combining the information on the page with easily accessed tutorials online this is more like having Barry sitting alongside you explaining the techniques and skills as well as just the usual How-To.

The book is arranged in sections to give readers the opportunity to easily locate the pattern or technique they are looking for. Patterns are not grouped alphabetically but by technique. For example, the section on dry flies has categories demonstrating a particular dry fly style or technique such as mastering the use of deer hair, parachute, CDC, and so on.
