Notes: The dark Kelly Green of the classic Eagles uniform is prominent in Don’s Philadelphia TCC. The Eagles have been around since the 30’s and have three league championships, but have yet to win the coveted Superbowl. Don used a ginger hackle dyed green to get this color, and the lighter hackles seen in the image are in fact the back sides of the hackles. 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.
