What’s the deal with fly fishermen? Why do they stand there with water up to their crotch, waving a stick with feathers tied to it in all kinds of weather and in the strangest places?
And what about fly tying? Why are there thousands of similar patterns built on the strangest materials and methods?
No fly tyer in the world has missed The Feather Bender’s skills as a fly tyer. He has published a dozen books and contributed to close to 30 others, not to mention written hundreds of articles internationally.
Ord Clarke has more than 7 million views on YouTube as “@Thefeatherbender” and has presented more than 500 patterns.
In The Feather Bender’s Bible, 100 of them are equipped with QR codes so that you can see step-by-step how Barry conjures up world-class flies. The patterns cover trout, sea trout, grayling, char, salmon and pike.
