- Marc Petitjean to be tying at the 2014 BFFI
Marc will be tying for both days at the BFFI on the FlyTek stand.
He will be introducing his latest innovative fly tying tool, the Magic Tool Stacker – if you thought that stacking fibres was a simple mundane process see how Marc has developed the process to make it more versatile with wider applications than most of us have ever dreamed of.
Also being introduced to the UK market are his range of Premier Swiss Vices; they use the same head as the Master Vices but are focussed on either flies or tubes and are ideal as introductory tools – “your first Petitjean Vice”.
In addition the range of Petitjean tools and accessories will be available and Marc will be tying his latest CDC flies.
