Welcome to Bending Feathers – Fly Tiers and Fly Dressers Symposium

Cancellation of Bending Feathers 2024 and postponement to 2025

Dear friends of Bending Feathers,

Sadly, we have to postpone this year’s fly tying symposium to November 2025. Unfortunately, according to the Public Holidays Act (FTG) in the Bavarian Collection of Laws in the district of Fürstenfeldbruck, the general sale and holding of entertainment events on public holidays (for us this would be the Sunday of the Dead (17 November 2024)) is not permitted.

We had hoped to find a solution, but it would have been difficult to organise the Bending Feathers under the given circumstances. As we have not been able to find a new date and suitable location in the short time available, we will be postponing the Bending Feathers for another year. We will keep you up to date.

Thank you for your understanding.


Extract from the law on the protection of Sundays and public holidays (Public Holidays Act – FTG) in the Bavarian Collection of Laws (BayRS 1131-3-I)
Art. 3 Quiet days
(2) On quiet days, public entertainment events are only permitted if the serious character corresponding to these days is preserved. 2Sports events are, however, permitted, except on Good Friday and on the Day of Prayer and Repentance. 3On Good Friday, musical performances of any kind are also prohibited in rooms with public houses.


Bending Feathers in November 2025

70 fly tyers from all over the world will come together over two days to present their best fly patterns and, of course, to also tie them live.

Look over the shoulders of the fly tyers, learn new techniques, and get tips and tricks from the professionals. Fly patterns of all kinds will be shown, whether dry or wet flies, streamers, nymphs, realistic flies, or salmon flies.

You will also meet many exhibitors offering a wide range of fly tying materials and fly hooks, tools, and tying vices. The materials for the numerous fly patterns that you will see at the tying vices of the fly tyers can be bought from one or more exhibitors.

Equip yourself for the upcoming season!
Some fly fishing accessories suitable for Christmas giving will also be available.

Attractive offers for fly fishing trips worldwide and information on top waters will be presented by travel providers. Get suggestions and ideas for your fishing holiday for the coming season or book your fly fishing trip on the spot.

Actively follow the live fly tying demonstrations in our fly tying theatre. There will be about 7 demonstrations per day on different tying techniques and materials.

Pay a visit with your children and teenagers to the fly tying for children offered especially for our young and enthusiastic fishermen and -women. There you will meet the tried and tested team who will tie a fly or two with the youngsters.

Rod building – also an interesting and appealing activity for the autumn and winter season – pick up all the materials and components to build your own fly rod. Or bring along your broken fishing rods for repair over the winter months.

Of course, your gastronomic needs will also not be neglected on either day. You can get food and drink at two food stalls and there will also be small seating and standing areas that invite you to linger.

And of course it is also a time to meet old friends and make new ones. Look forward to a great weekend of fly tying and more!
