A bit of fire lighting

Fire lighting is a learnt skill, but once learnt you need to keep practicing.  I frequently tell our students to get out and light a fire as often as possible, in as many different weather conditions as possible, different environments, different times of year, different times of day.  This will all lead to increased competency.

So yesterday I decided to take a walk around the woods and see what tinder I could find and use it to light a fire.

Fire lighting is something we teach on many of our courses, including our  1 Day2 Day and 5 Day Bushcraft Courses as well as the IOL Bushcraft Competency Award and Certificate.

You can see photos from these courses on our Facebook page.
