Notes: When I hear Cleveland, I think of Drew Carey, Family Guy and of course, the Browns. Named for popular sports figure and coach Paul Brown, the team has had quite a storied history and even suspended operations few a few years. The original team was moved to Baltimore but the city retained the naming rights for the team and it was reformed again in 1999 with a new stadium. Don did a wonderful job placing the team colors into the streamer. It is simple and elegant in design and would make for a good streamer to swing for … brown trout of course. 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.
