The Feather Bender's Flytying Techniques - A comprehensive, lavishly illustrated guide to tying popular trout flies.  A special feature of this one-of-a-kind books is that its the first tying book to have a video link for all the patterns featured. Watch the author tying online, then turn to the matching chapter in the book to follow the step-by-step instructions so that you can tie your own fly in your own time.
The book is aimed at all fly tyers, from new / modest to more advanced skills. Barry's intention is to focus on certain important elementary techniques, and then share some of his favorite contemporary twists on old, tried-and-true techniques. Many of the flies in this book are based in his own techniques and patterns, ones that he has developed in more than thirty-five years of tying. 
The book, arranged in sections giving readers the opportunity to easily locate the pattern or technique they are looking for. Patterns grouped  by technique, e.g.  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. 
If new to fly tying, the opening chapters on materials and special techniques and tricks will familiarize you with some basics and help you get started. Seasoned fly tyers will similarly find information here to help them raise their tying skills to a new level.
Each pattern is listed with a recipe, recommended hook style, size, and fly material, all of which can be purchased from the troutcatchers Fly Tying material pages (we are recommended in Barry's Book who regularly purchases from us) and are listed in the order that Barry uses them, plus illustrated by the book’s step-by-step images. This will help you plan each pattern and assemble materials beforehand.

  • Pheasant tail nymph
  • Klinkhamer
  • Humpy
