Marcus Zetterblad

My name is Marcus, I'm born and raised in the archipelago of Stockholm, Sweden. I started flyfishing and tying flies at the age 12 and for me the brackish waters of the archipelago became my home water were I could evolve my flyfishing and flytying. It didn't took long before I was charmed by the mysterious sea run browns that live along the coastal line of Scandinavia. 

I still consider the coast my home water and I still enjoy fishing it for sea runs browns, pike and perch. Later on I really got into the articulated streamer fishing, but I try to adapt them more for the coastal flyfishing.
