Barry Ord Clarke - England

Born in England, Barry Ord Clarke is an internationally acclaimed and much published photographer and fly tyer. He has written, Co-written and contributed to more than 30 books about fly tying.  For the past seven years he has been working closely with Marc Petitjean on his definitive book on tying with CDC, that was published in March 2018.

He has won medals in some of the worlds most prestigious fly tying competitions, and his own flies can be seen in the legendary 'Fly fishers club' collection in London and also in the ‘Catskill master fly collection’ in the Catskill Museum in the United States. 
In 2016 Barry was awarded the coveted ‘Claudio D’Angelo award for best International Fly Tyer.

For the past 25 years he has lived in Norway where he works as a professional photographer and a fly tying consultant for The Mustad Hook Company & Veniard Ltd. You can find Barry’s fly tying on his successful blog and You Tube channel, The feather bender.

Barry's new book, 'The Feather Benders flytying techniques' will be published, later this year, in September. This will be a first for fly tying, as each step by step, in the book will be supported by a video of Barry tying each pattern.
