Using bracken as a tinder


Last week I did a video on using bluebell stems as a tinder for fire lighting with emphasis on the fact that the stems can be found in December.

This week I thought I’d stick with that theme and look at other materials that we can use as a tinder and can be found in the winter months.  So this video is about using bracken as a tinder (and ferns).

We teach using bracken as a tinder on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses as well as the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course.

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