The feather bender is a blog focusing on ﬂy tying & materials for ﬂy-tyers by ﬂy-tyers.
Fly tying for many is a hobby, for others it´s a means of ﬁlling their ﬂy box with ﬁne tuned and well tested patterns, that would be otherwise unavailable. For many of us who read this blog it´s more of a passion, and for some, even a way of life…
Fly fishing flies
The aim of the feather bender is to connect ﬂy-tyers all over the world, to share, techniques, patterns, information and knowledge. To help the new beginner, to our craft, exchange frustration for inspiration, and give the advanced tyer a chance to communicate and enlighten others with tips, tricks, techniques and maybe even, a few well kept secrets.
I will also feature historic patterns along side more contemporary patterns and techniques, with reviews of new tools, materials and books, and not forgetting entomology.
The whole idea of the feather bender concept relies on all you ﬂy-tyers, wherever you are, who are now reading this, We need your input in order to make this work. So don´t be shy, we can´t wait to see your own patterns, ideas and techniques.
So please like and share…
