Marc Lebel is a North Vancouver-based fly tyer. He primarily ties flies for the Capilano and Squamish river systems, as well as the salt water estuaries of Howe Sound targeting steelhead, coho, chum, chinook and pink salmon. His favourite flies to tie are shrimp and prawn patterns.
Marc grew up in North Vancouver, and has been fishing his local waters since he was old enough to hold a rod. In 1992 his dad gave him an old Fenwick fibreglass fly rod, and Marc has been hooked on fly fishing ever since. He still sometimes chases Capilano Coho with it.
Marc also makes custom, one of a kind fly rods, specializing in spey and switch. His workshop is on the edge of the Capilano river, and that is where he tests all his flies and rods. Marc is constantly trying to refine his recipes and create flies that look good in the box and move beautifully in the water.
When he is not fishing or tying flies, Marc is working as a Paramedic in the city of Vancouver. The meditative affect of tying flies creates a perfect balance to the high stress job of paramedicine.
