Jack Leslie served his apprenticeship in the British Navy. Arriving
on the BC Coast he worked as a faller and later a fisherman before
settling in Clam Bay which is nestled within a short distance of Blubber
Bay around 1953. Jack handcrafted his models from driftwood found outside
his front door. He sold most of his models apart from a few that he gave
to local teachers, family and friends. Several of Jack’s models were even
shipped to distant parts of the world.
