Notes: The sweeping blue wing on this streamer reminds me so much of the Bills logo. This is a spectacular streamer with some wonderful work on the ribbing. Buffalo is actually the only New York NFL team to play their home games within New York state proper. Both the New York Giants and the New York Jets play in East Rutherford, New Jersey, nine miles from their headquarters in New York City. The Bills also are the only team to play home games in Canada. In 2008, they struck a deal to play one regular season game per season in Toronto, Ontario. Be sure to check out Don’s other TCC submissions in the project.

Don Soar – Born and raised in central Massachusetts now living in Lancaster with my wife of twenty years Nancy. Fishing started young in life tagging along with my brothers. I took up fly fishing in the early 90’s. Ten years later I started tying flies. After meeting Mike Martinek Jr. at a local fly shop I was introduced to the dark side of fly tying, the long fly.
